SPARTAN RACE & BWET Swimwear

[29th March, 2017, Hong Kong] SPARTAN RACE, the world’s largest obstacle race and endurance brand, has launched its first ever Asia Pacific Championship Series. The first event of the series will kick off on the 22nd of April in Hong Kong and end with the finale in Australia where the winners of the first APAC Series will be crowned. Racers will be competing for over USD $50,000 in cash and prizes across the entire series.

The Asia Pacific Championship Series will have four qualifying events kicking off with the Hong Kong Sprint (5km & 20+ obstacles) on April 22nd, the Taiwan Super (13km & 22+ obstacles) on May 20th, the Korean Super on June 10th and the Malaysia Super on July 9th before culminating with the Australia Beast at the end of November.

Elite racers will be awarded points based on their rankings from any of the five events of the Championship Series. The top 10 male and female elite racers as well as the top three male and female elite master’s racers with the most points will walk away with the grand prize money.

While prize money is also up for grabs for the top finishers in the first four qualifying events, the winners will also receive a guaranteed spot in the final event of the APAC Series in Australia. 

Spartan Race Managing Director for Asia Pacific, Michael Goodwin, said, “The inaugural Spartan Race Asia Pacific Championship Series is a testament to the passionate athletes and weekend warriors who have propelled us from hosting Spartan events in two APAC countries in 2015, to what will be 10 plus APAC countries and regions in 2017. The APAC Series in not just for the elites who are arguably the best athletes in the world, but is also a public challenge to everyone who knows that they can do and be more than they are today. Prepare yourself for a brutal cross-section of terrain and some of the world’s best obstacles as we look to break and transform you to bring out the Spartan legend from within”.

Hong Kong Spartan Sprint offers more races and great cash prizes

With over 6000 people from 26 different countries accepting the toughest challenge to hit Hong Kong all year, Spartan Race 2016 was a resounding success. Taking place in the expansive surroundings of Kam Tin Country Club, competitors pushed themselves to their limits to overcome a series of gruelling obstacles before declaring themselves Spartans.

The Elite races for men and women have the added incentive of great cash prizes for the top finishers including an impressive HKD$17,500 for both winners. Runners up will receive:

In addition Elite winners will receive one pair of swim shorts sponsored by BWET Swimwear. Both male and female champion of Hong Kong will also receive the latest Suunto Sport Watches Collection – Spartan Ultra watch, while the runners up wil receive a Spartan Sport watch.

Due to popular demand, one more Competitive Heat have been added to the morning schedule. Designed to bridge the gap between the Elite and Open race categories, runners in the Competitive heats race over the same challenging course and follow the same rules as the Elite racers but compete for glory and bragging rights rather than prize money.

The Spartan Movement

Spartan Races have welcomed millions worldwide to compete over some of the world’s toughest obstacle courses. The Open races welcome weekend warriors, novice athletes, first-time racers and everyone in between to break out of their comfort zone and create their own personal challenge. All obstacles are erected by Spartan certified engineers and tried and tested before each event. Participants will be offered training workshops and given nutritional tips in the lead up to the big day to ensure everyone is prepared.

斯巴達障礙賽亞太區錦標賽正式開始

香港衝刺賽掀頭炮

[2017329日,香港] 全球最大型的障礙及耐力運動斯巴達障礙賽,將會展開亞太區錦標賽。一系列的錦標賽會由4月22日的香港賽事掀幕,並在澳洲舉行整個系列的決賽、見證首次亞太區錦標賽的王者誕生。參賽者將會在整個亞太區賽事系列競逐超過50,000美元的現金獎及獎品。

亞太區錦標賽共有四場資格測試賽事,分別是4月22日的香港開幕衝剌賽 (5公里共20項障礙)、5月20日的台灣超級賽(13公里共22項障礙)、6月10日的韓國超級賽及7月9日的馬來西亞超級賽;11月底的澳洲野獸賽將會作為整個比賽系列的終點。

參加上述五個賽事的精英組別參賽者,你的比賽成績會轉換為排名榜分數。精英組賽事得分最高的10名男選手及女選手、精英賽壯年組別(40歲或以上的選手)得分最高的3名男選手及女選手,將會贏得錦標賽的終極現金獎。在四個資格測試賽事勝出的選手,除了獲得現金獎,亦會得到參加亞太區錦標賽於澳洲舉行的決賽資格。

斯巴達障礙賽亞太區董事總經理Michael Goodwin表示,「我們舉辦斯巴達障礙賽亞太區錦標賽系列,是為了向所有運動愛好者致敬。因為他們的投入參與,促使我們在2015年在亞太區兩個國家試辦了斯巴達障礙賽。在2017年,我們將會在10個以上的亞太區國家及地區舉辦賽事。除了運動精英和世界頂尖運動員,我們的亞太區錦標賽系列亦邀請有意突破自己極限的人士參與。加緊訓練來迎接挑戰吧,我們為你準備了嚴苛的比賽場地及全球最難的障礙,讓你超越自己的極限、由內而外蛻變成一個斯巴達的勇士!」

香港版斯巴達衝剌賽為你送上更多挑戰機會和更豐厚的現金獎

香港2016年的斯巴達障礙賽十分成功,得到超過來自26個國家合共6,000名選手參加。參賽者在廣闊的錦田鄉村俱樂部進行比賽,跨越多組嚴苛的障礙去成為真正的斯巴達勇士。

精英組勝出的選手會額外獲得西班牙泳裝品牌BWET Swimwear贊助的泳褲。香港賽事的男子組及女子組冠軍會分別獲得運動手錶品牌Suunto贊助的Spartan Ultra系列運動手錶,而其他勝出的選手則會獲得Suunto贊助的Spartan Sport系列運動手錶。

極受歡迎的競爭組賽事今年會多加一場早上賽事。競爭組賽事難度介乎於精英組和公開組,但競爭組選手需要遵從和精英組一樣的規則和標準。這個組別的參賽者並非為了獎金,而是為爭奪榮耀和成就。

斯巴達熱潮

全球已經有數百萬人參加過斯巴達障礙賽,挑戰其中一些目前最艱難的障礙賽。公開組賽事歡迎所有運動愛好者、運動新手、首次參加者、以及所有人,一同挑戰自己去衝破極限。所有障礙物由斯巴達障礙賽認可的技師製作,並在每項比賽前通過技師測試。
