SPARTAN STADION - CITIZENS BANK PARK
CITIZENS BANK PARK, PHILADELPHIA PA
Designed for Philadelphia’s baseball team, but named after a bank, this stadium is money. The park, which holds over 40,000 fans, will play host to thousands of Spartans.
This City of Brotherly Love’s Stadion race gives Spartans a chance to take on over three miles of open-air chaos with over 20 obstacles that will challenge both seasoned racers and newbies. The stairways and tunnels will take racers on a fast-moving tour of the park. Spartans shouldn’t expect to be protected from the elements as race temperatures and rainy weather may play a role.
The Stadion was an ancient Greek running event and a historic, original Olympic Game. It got its name from the storied stadium it took place in. Now, we’re letting you compete in the legendary stadiums of today and add to their history. But unlike Ancient Greece, all levels are encouraged to take part and enjoy themselves. No matter your level, set your own personal record and etch a new chapter in your own history book.

WHAT TO WEAR
We recommend dressing in performance gear (NOT COTTON). Think compression tights or shorts and breathable tops made from moisture wicking material (you’re going to sweat). Wear comfortable shoes that you’ve trained in.
In addition to your clothes, consider fuel when planning your race day outfit. For a Stadion distance you can normally get away with the water stations on course, but if you’re someone who needs a lot of water, we recommend wearing a hydration pack.
We have all you need to gear up for race day at the Spartan Shop.
