If running a half marathon while taking on 30 obstacles sounds like your idea of a good time (why?), we’ve got the race for you.
A Spartan trifecta weekend is coming to Bahrain for the first time next month, and there are three different challenges you can take on, plus a special route for kids.
The shortest, which is suitable for athletes of any fitness level, will see competitors take on a 5 km route which has 20 different obstacles on it.
The next level up, the Spartan Super, is a 10 km route with 25 obstacles which takes you through more rugged terrain.
Finally, the Spartan Beast is the most difficult of the three, with 30 obstacles over a 21.1 km route.
The little ones can get involved too with the Spartan Kids course, which is up to 3.2 km long and has between seven and fourteen obstacles, depend on the age bracket.
The race is set to kick off from the Lost Paradise of Dilmun water park on February 21 and February 22.
If you don’t feel like getting involved (and who can blame you), you can pay BHD2 to be a spectator, or you’ll be able to get in for free if you’re under 12.
After the race you can take advantage of the festival area which will be filled with entertainment and food stalls for you to enjoy.
Tickets will cost between BHD17 and BHD64, and for that price you’ll get a finisher t-shirt, a medal, and a ranking at the end.

From BHD17. Fri Feb 21-Sat Feb 22 7am onwards. Lost Paradise of Dilmun water park, Hawrat Ingah (no number).
