A new endurance race is taking place for the first in Manitoba this summer just outside of Winnipeg.

Spartan Race is a 5 km sprint race set for the community of Grunthal at the Grunthal Motocross Park.

Competitors will be led through a course with more than 15 obstacles that will test all skill level of participants, including beginners, intermediates and seasoned marathon runners.

“99.9% will finish and 100% will have their thirst for fun fully satisfied,” a cheeky press release read.

Organizers have held similar events across British Columbia and Alberta since 2011. Grunthal will join Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Red Deer and Sun Peaks as a premier Spartan Race destination.

The race is Saturday, July 11. Race participants and spectators can register online.
