Spartan announced today a return to North Lake Tahoe for the 2019 Spartan World Championship, their 5th year at this beautiful and historic location.

SEP 28-29, 2019 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP WEEKEND HOSTED BY NORTH LAKE TAHOEOLYMPIC VALLEY CA

Located a short ride from Lake Tahoe, this epic venue was once host to the 1960 Olympic Winter Games. Join us today for the greatest obstacle course race in North Tahoe Lake, Olympic Village, CA!

The Village at Squaw Valley is a year-round destination in the heart of Squaw Valley, located in North Lake Tahoe. This European-inspired Village features over 40 bars, restaurants, galleries and boutiques, including a yoga studio and day spa. Condominium style suites are conveniently located for access to four season adventure including Aerial Tram rides to High Camp at 8200 feet, overlooking Lake Tahoe.

The obstacle racing weekend of the year will feature two Spartan Race distances to choose from over two days of racing: The Spartan Beast and the Spartan Ultra. Which challenge are you ready to accept?

To do well, runners will need to prepare for the thin air as heights reach over 9,000 feet of elevation. Lake Tahoe is one of Northern California’s premier destinations and draws a healthy crowd year-round for its spectacular skiing, water sports, and outdoor activities. With 72 miles of shoreline straddling the California-Nevada stateline, there’s always somewhere new to explore and plenty of terrain for Spartans to roam. The most popular areas to visit include the more nature-oriented North Tahoe, or the party scene of South Tahoe. Or you can do it all — visitors have the potential travel around the lake in under 90 minutes.

Spartans are in for an adventure filled with traverses, climbs, crawls and perhaps even some swims. Come prepared.
