Spartan Race began in 2010 at the Catamount Outdoor Center in Williston, Vermont to become a worldwide race. In September 2018, Rakuten announced its multiyear partnership with the Spartan race.With more than 200 events across 40 countries, this is a partnership of global scale.
To celebrate this new partnership, Rakuten Aquafadas decided to take part in this amazing race. On May 4th, we participated in the Spartan Race in Carcassonne, a race of 5km and 20 obstacles. 4000 Spartan runners joined the third French step of the Spartan series.
Through the Spartan race, the European Rakutenians showed their unity, strength and bravery. We ran as #OneTeam.
“The feeling of achievement, that moment after the race when you know you have pushed yourself and completed a new challenge, is one that stays with you forever,” commented Olivier Alluis, our CEO.
