Spartan Race has cancelled all of its U.S. obstacle races and trail races for the rest of 2020. “As COVID-19 cases continue to rise across the United States and after ongoing discussion with state governments and health experts, we’ve made the necessary decision to cancel all remaining 2020 U.S. Spartan obstacle course races and trail events,” the company announced in a press release this week. “It was a difficult decision to make, but we believe it’s better to prioritize safety now so we can rally towards the incredible season we have planned in 2021.

“We know this cancellation announcement is hard to hear,” the company continued. “It’s hard for us to say. However, there are still five months left in the year. Let’s work together to keep training, stay healthy and be unbreakable so we’re all ready for an epic 2021 season.”
