The Spartan Race: Downtown Challenge was held in September 2019. Sponsored by Downtown Gallery, this world-famous obstacle race that took place on September 14th along a closed section of Shenton Way boasts adrenaline-pumping twists and surprises at every turn. Best of all, it’s a family event where there were obstacles for the kids between the ages of 4 – 13! The Spartan Race is a global phenomenon with over 240 races taking place in 25 countries this year alone. But this is no ordinary running race. The Spartan experience is all about obstacles, so you’ll have to push your body to its limits by running, climbing, pushing, pulling and crawling your way over walls, through mud, water and even barbed wire.
