Spartan Race

Spartan Race Canada helps children who courageously face obstacles every day

Spartan Race participantsSpartan Race Canada has selected Shriners Hospitals for Children — Canada as their National Charity Partner for 2018.

Spartan races are among the most challenging obstacle courses in the world, tough for anyone. Over the years, patients of the Canada Shriners Hospital have proven that disabilities do not necessarily mean limitations. Their participation in these challenging events has inspired families, friends and communities across the country.

Shriners Hospitals for Children — Canada shares core values with the Spartan Race sports community: to empower individuals to realize their full potential and to be the best that they can be. Shriners International, the fraternity that founded and continues to support Shriners Hospitals, will also have a strong presence at races across the country as local members will serve as volunteers and help organizers offer a safe, fun and rewarding race to all participants.
