Spartan Race may no longer be holding the 2020 Spartan World Championship in Abu Dhabi. Covid-19 travel issues may force Spartan to hold the event elsewhere this December. Back in January, Spartan announced their World Championship would be taking place outside the United States for the first time. As of a few hours ago, customers can no longer register for the race on Spartan’s website. This afternoon, Spartan CEO, Joe Desena told us
We are monitoring travel restrictions and access in and out of the middles east, if it looks like its gonna be hard for the world to get to Abu Dhabi, we will find a location that will be easier for the most athletes and countries globally to get into and out of.
In other Spartan Championship news, the Ultra World Championship to be held in Vermont has been moved to a yet undetermined location. The TriFecta World Championship in Greece is going ahead as scheduled Nov 5- 8.
Stay tuned as we continue to get more details on this story.
