Course Description:
There are some staples in our repertoire. There are also some venue specific and terrain inspired obstacles. We will not, however, spell it out for you. We do not have course maps. Each Spartan Race strives to surprise the athlete. Preperation for the unknown is a must.

There is fire, mud, water, barbed wire, and occasionally Hell on Earth. There WILL be obstacles to catch you off guard. Curve balls, so to speak. Get over it.

We’re here to rip you from your comfort zone. If you need a road map for each step of the way, then maybe this race isn’t for you.
Event Photos:

Start Time:
Heats start at 8am with up to 250 racers and continue every 30 minutes throughout the day. Enter the 8am “Elite” heat if you want to be as competitive as possible and race against the best. If you are scheduled to run in any wave after 2pm, we strongly suggest you bring a headlamp with you. It gets dark quickly around 4:30pm in the hills, so if you think you might still be out there past 4:30, it would be wise to bring a headlamp. Race Officials reserve the right to remove racers without headlamps from the course if necessary.
Aid Stations:
There will be ONE aid-station located on course. Hydrate properly, or carry your water with you!

  • Spartan Race Finishers medal
  • Spartan Race T-Shirt
  • Free Beer ticket for anyone 21 and over
  • Tired legs from climbing up and down the mountain

The Spartan Hurricane Heat is a special opportunity that gives athletes the chance to meet and run with the Founders and staff of Spartan Race in a unique and memorable way. Usually held early Saturday morning or Friday night (Head lamps and glow sticks required!), you'll be put on a team, and you'll finish as a team. No timing chips, no clock, no bells and whistles.
We'll run the course backwards, sideways, or while carrying our buddies, but one thing is for certain: no two Hurricane Heats will be the same. This is what Spartan Race is all about… getting up when you’re knocked down and finishing what you start.
Start time: Arrive Saturday morning at 5:30am, be ready to go at 6:00am SHARP. Don't be late!
