Sainte-Croix - Sport
Sainte-Croix / Les Rasses will host the Spartan, the world's leading obstacle race, on Saturday 11 June 2022.
With its unique panorama of the Alps and its typical Jura ridge terrain, the destination of Sainte-Croix / Les Rasses will welcome a horde of athletes, called "SPARTANS" in June 2022.
During a Spartan race, participants are confronted with a series of obstacles (climbing, wall, nets, barbed wire, fire, sandbagging, etc.). Two emblematic distances of the franchise will be featured on the Balcon du Jura: the "SPRINT" on a course of about 5km with 20 obstacles and the "SUPER" on a course of about 10km with 25 obstacles. A course specially designed for children will also be offered during the event.
This discipline, halfway between crossfit and trail running, reaches a large community of athletes across the globe.
Organised in Switzerland by Gorilla Corporation Sàrl and XChange Sport and Event AG, this international sporting event is initiated and coordinated at the regional level by the Association for the Development of Nord Vaudois (ADNV) and the Commune of Sainte-Croix.
