New for Spartan Race 2019/2020 is The Box. A large 8ft box coated in a slick material with rounded top lip and a varied length rope hang off. This rope is attached to a metal bar about 1 1/2 – 2 feet back from the edge. When introduced, the Box featured a rope long enough to get your feet on to climb up. The more recent version features a much shorter rope making this obstacle much more difficult than you would expect.
Training Focus: Grip Strength, Upper Body Pulling
