Watch: Spartan Race at Kimberley Alpine Resort

This weekend the Spartan Race took place at Kimberley Alpine Resort. Participants from across North America came to town to compete in one of the most intense races the City has seen.

Races are hosted in nine cities across Canada every year, including Masonville, QC, Stoneham, QC, Oshawa, ON, Collingwood, ON, Calabogie, ON, Calgary, AB, Red Deer, AB, Kimberly, BC and North Vancouver, BC.

From climbing the ski hill to jumping across a fire pit at the finish line, racers tested their strength and endurance over three days.

There are multiple distance races to choose from in three different categories: elite, age group, and open. There is also a kids category, ranging in age groups from ages 4 to 8 and 9 to 13.

In the elite category, athletes are competing to win prize money, push themselves, attract potential sponsors and earn points.

The age group category, formerly known as the competitive category, involves a series of heats placed immediately after the elite category. Age group racers will be officiated by on-course referees, video review, and feature an age group points series with prizes, awards and rankings.

The open category is for anyone including novice athletes and first time racers. The open category offers the same opportunities as the other categories, however there is no pressure to push your pace.

The race is further broken down into specific challenges including the Spartan Sprint, the Stadium Series, the Spartan Super, Spartan Beast, and the Trifecta race. All of them are a challenge, however some are more suited for beginners and some for elite athletes.
