North East England based travel company Nirvana has been officially announced as the Travel & Accommodation Partner for Spartan Stadion, the final race of the UK & Ireland 2019 Spartan obstacle race season.
Nirvana will initially be delivering travel and accommodation packages to support athlete and supporter journeys, to the inaugural race staged at one of the UK’s most beloved sports stadiums – Twickenham.
The 5km obstacle course event is the first of its kind to be held at Twickenham Stadium. According to the team at Spartan UK, it’s set to be the biggest new sporting event to come to London in recent years. Competitors will weave their way through sloping walkways, navigate the winding corridors and scale the stadium stairs. The stadium will be packed full of obstacles including box jumps, stair climbs, low crawls and carries.
