Stairway to Stadium Banner rev 2.png

The Spartan Stadion Race is known as one of the best opportunities for obstacle race first-timers to take on a race course. The stadium venue has its own unique challenges, from lots (and lots!) of stair climbing to functional fitness challenges to the obstacles themselves.

That’s where our Stairway to Stadium Challenge comes in!

The Stairway to Stadium Challenge is a four-week dedicated training program designed to give you the tools, training and confidence needed to crush a Spartan Stadion Race. With the Angels Stadium Spartan Race just around the corner, the timing couldn’t be better to join the Stairway to Stadium Challenge and get the edge you need to go from couch to crushing the course!
