About Sparta Chicks Unleashed

Since early 2017, Sparta Chicks Radio has shared inspiring stories coupled with practical advice from successful women in all walks of life - from Olympic Gold Medalists to everyday age group athletes - about the realities of fear and self-doubt, courage and bravery, success and living life on your terms.

But there's only so much you can take in while listening to a podcast, especially if you're driving the car or washing the dishes. You can't take notes, ask your questions and you don't have the space to really think about and reflect on what the guests have shared.

That's why we created Sparta Chicks Unleashed.

It's an opportunity to bring Sparta Chicks Radio to life; out of your ears and into real life.

To give you an opportunity to ask your questions. And to have deeper, more meaningful conversations in an intimate setting that will leave you feeling empowered to make the changes you want to see in your training, racing, career and life. 

Deep conversations. Empowering speakers. An amazing community.

If you love endurance sports. 

If you love Sparta Chicks Radio.

This is the day for you.

Your host

Jen Brown is passionate about helping women like you realise their strength and resilience.

A Trail Running and Triathlon Coach and the founder of Sparta Chicks, Jen saw a need to have deeper, more meaningful conversations around topics that affect women like you on a daily basis and, as a result, launched the popular podcast, Sparta Chicks Radio, in 2017.

Jen's work has been featured in Women's Fitness, Travel Play Live & Australian Triathlete (PINK Edition).

If she's not working, she can often be found drinking coffee or exploring the trails in the beautiful Blue Mountains.
