MORE than 5,000 athletes pushed their bodies to the limit Saturday when the globally-renown Spartan Race made its debut at Mission Hills Resort in Shenzhen.

The world’s largest obstacle race and endurance brand teamed up with the world’s largest golf facility to provide Spartans with the ultimate test over six kilometers and 20 obstacles through the Mission Hills Sport and Eco Park, located within the 22-square-kilometer Shenzhen resort.

“With 200 events in more than 30 countries worldwide, and more than one million global participants, the Spartan Race is officially the world’s largest obstacle race and endurance brand,” said Tenniel Chu, Group Vice Chairman of Mission Hills.

“Therefore we are delighted to bring the Spartan Race to the world’s largest golf facility and to Shenzhen for the first time. Mission Hills has always strived to lead the way in bringing China to the world and the world to China and this was another truly exciting world-class spectacle for the Chinese people.”

The Spartan event at Mission Hills Shenzhen featured a “Sprint” race over six kilometers with 20 obstacles, with participants aged from 14 years old up to 50 and beyond.

Spartan Race is a series of obstacle races of varying distance and difficulty ranging from 4.8 kilometers to marathon distances.

They are held in the U.S. and have been franchised to 30 countries including Canada, South Korea, Australia and several European countries.
