Spartan Races returned to Mill River Park in Stamford for the fourth year. The Spartan event for kids attracted families from all over the Northeast on September 15 and 16. Bankwell made it possible for Carver’s young athletes to join in the fun and competition.
Kids took in fun and challenging obstacles on a course all their own. The signature Spartan festival area was filled with super cool kid-friendly activities, healthy snacks and training obstacles. The race MC got everyone ready with cheers and burpees at the start line. The rest of the event was accompanied by the latest music blasting throughout the course as the young athletes climbed, crawled, jumped and ran their way to their individual victories.
Mill River Park is a 12-acre transformative space in the heart of downtown Stamford. Frequently described as a “Mini Central Park”, a quick tour reveals a beautiful sparkling and free flowing river with dozens of new species of wild life, a brilliant community-built playground, and three incredibly landscaped outdoor activation areas for our Spartan Kids Obstacle course. Over the past few years, they have begun 28 acres of revitalization, including the recent construction of the Brownstein/Selkowitz Pavilion, which will house the Nissen Carousel.
Thank you, Bankwell and Spartan for your gifts of inspiration and healthy living to Carver kids!
