Sprint race comes to Miller Park


Reebok Spartan Race has created the Wisconsin Spartan Sprint at Miller Park, and it will take place on Sept. 7.

"Based on the huge success of our Fenway Park and Citi Field events in Boston and New York respectively, we recognized the appeal of the more intimate stadium setting," said Spartan Race founder Joe De Sena.

"Fans will get to experience Miller Park in a rare, up-close-and-personal way as the course winds throughout the entire stadium – including stands and concourses – and ends on the field."

Adult heats will start at 8 a.m. continuing in roughly one-minute, 10-person waves throughout the day, with individual start times assigned at the event. Points will be awarded and elite performers can win entry to a larger, even tougher Super Spartan event.

The three-mile course is a head-to-head, time trial, speed-style event, with the unique twist of incorporating numerous and challenging obstacles.

Each racer will receive a commemorative medal, T-shirt and photographs along with access to Miller Park and instant fame on its massive HD video board.

Children also can join in the challenge with the Jr. Spartan Adventure Race. Spectator access to the event will be free with a limited number of luxury viewing suites available.

The Reebok Spartan 2013 calendar will include Sprint Races at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia on Sept. 28 and Fenway Park in Boston on Nov. 16.

"Spartan Race's mission is to rip people off their couches and do what we as human beings were made to do: run, jump, sweat and climb," De Sena asserted. "Our stadium races will offer a unique setting to do that."

As part of an exclusive offer ending May 3, readers can use the code "MILLER40" to receive a $75 registration price, a $40 value.
