A renowned U.S.-born obstacle race is making a comeback after years of pandemic moratorium. 

A Chiang Mai reservoir in August will welcome hundreds of adrenaline junkies and health nuts for Spartan Race Thailand. 

Those who registered for previous Chiang Mai races in 2020 or 2021 will be able to use their deferment codes to sign up for the same race type and category. Those who bought tickets for the postponed 2019 races will be emailed codes as well as registration instructions once it opens.

The race will take place Aug. 13 and Aug. 14 at Huay Tueng Tao, a huge man-made reservoir in Chiang Mai’s Mae Rim district. See more details online.

Spartan Race, founded in 2007, has grown into an international endurance obstacle course craze. The shortest distance is the “Spartan Sprint”’ (5 kilometers, 20 obstacles); the longest to be staged in Chiang Mai is the Spartan Super (12-16 kilometers, 30-35 obstacles).
