Second Annual Virginia's Blue Ridge Spartan Kids Race - May 18-19 at Green Hill Park


The Spartan Kids Race returns to Roanoke County's Green Hill Park for a fun and challenging weekend of fun and challenging obstacle races for ages 4-13. Sponsored by Virginia's Blue Ridge, this second annual race features several exciting categories including 1/2 mile, 1 mile, 2 mile and trifecta. Every athlete earns a finisher t-shirt and medal just for participating. Studies show that kids are less fit today than their parents were as kids. At Spartan, we’re dedicated to making healthy the new normal for the next generation through our kids obstacle course races. Active youth benefit from better physical health, are at lower risk of developing depression and earn higher grades than their less-active peers. At Spartan, we strongly believe that kids should run, climb, jump and get muddy. We don’t give them medals, they earn it. We’re bringing it back to the basics. Put down the electronics and make time to move as a family
