Spartans, you asked and here it is.. our first 2019 Stadion race, Twickenham Stadium. One of the UK’s most beloved stadiums with a capacity of 82,000 will play host to thousands of Spartans at the end of November.
Bringing the adrenaline of a Spartan race to the awesome spectacle of a stadium, Stadion is a 5km, 20-obstacle race that offers a fresh challenge for new and season racers alike. Throwing a number of exciting and unfamiliar obstacles in your path, racers will get the opportunity to experience a Spartan race on the same ground that legends tread.
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.

There are just over 1,000 mountain gorillas left in the world and all four gorilla subspecies are highly endangered. The rangers who protect them risk their lives to keep them safe. They need simple things to do their jobs well: rainwear to protect them in the forest, compasses to help them find their way in inhospitable terrain, mountain tents for long nights spent on patrol. By taking part in an event, and fundraising for us, you will allow us to continue our award-winning conservation projects in Africa, providing a brighter future for gorillas and the people they live alongside.
