Spartan Race Announces first-ever Race in Cuba,
Leading Obstacle Race Pushes Global Borders
MIAMI, October 1, 2016 — Spartan Race, in partnership with Miami-based MultiRace, is about to prove that there are no borders when it comes to sports. On March 18, 2017 they will blaze new ground in an unprecedented launch of a Spartan Race in La Habana, Cuba—making it the first-ever endurance obstacle race in Cuba since the re-establishment of relations with the U.S.
This inaugural Reebok Spartan Race in Cuba will offer racers from around the globe a unique opportunity to test their limits in one of the world’s most iconic locales. The exclusive Cuban event, which will be limited to only 1,000 participants, includes an extraordinary package deal. Early registrants will receive a travel visa, ground transportation, entry to a special cultural celebration, and, of course, the opportunity to make Spartan history on the first Cuban race course.
“International enthusiasm for Spartan Race is proof of the powerful diplomacy of sports,” said Joe De Sena, founder and CEO of Spartan Race. “This will be an opportunity for racers to experience other cultures and share with the world the indomitable Spartan spirit. Sport is a language we all share that needs no interpretation.”
“We are very excited to partner with Spartan Race to bring this world class event to Cuba. We believe that sports are a wonderful means to bridge cultural gaps and bring people together. We look at this partnership as an exciting springboard to other opportunities,” said Joe DaGrosa, chairman of MultiRace. The company also operates La Habana Marathon and La Habana Triathlon.
While travel to Cuba remains restricted, athletic events that enhance cultural connections are permitted. This makes the Reebok Spartan Race Cuba an ideal venue to not only test endurance limits, but to experience an enchanting land for the first time. More than 400 people already signed up pre-register now, before it’s too late
