BOSTON, MASS. (9/22/22)/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Spartan, the world’s leading endurance sports and extreme wellness brand, has announced that Lucra Sports will be the official partner of Spartan for the remainder of the 2022 U.S. Season.
“As both a professional sport operating in 30+ countries, and one of the world’s largest mass participation fitness communities, Spartan Race is the perfect event for a little friendly competition,” says Ian Lawson, Spartan’s VP of Global Partnerships. “Via the Lucra Sports app, Spartans and fans can now challenge their friends on race outcomes or fun prop bets and put real skin in the game. We are so excited to have Lucra choose Spartan to help launch their platform, and we look forward to all of the competition, content, and bragging rights that will be created and shared as a result of this partnership.”
The Spartan community can expect to see, and will have access to, a new social platform that hopes to make race day even more fun and competitive.
