|Obstacles||More than a dozen. Course layout not revealed before race."It's like life, you don't know what's coming next"|
|Terrain||Varies by location depending on topography; course will use any and all natural obstacles and elements to make a demanding and interesting course.|

Remember when you were a kid—when you would not only walk toward a puddle, but stomp right in the middle of it, making as big a splash as you could? Kids who aren’t yet brainwashed by electronic media go outside to play, explore, and get dirty. They squat down to dig in the sand with impeccable flexibility and balance. They climb and swing and tumble for the sheer joy of their own movement. When was the last time you went through the mud instead of around it, were overcome with exhilaration at your own power, or felt giddy just by being alive? We are building a global sport and community around the Spartan model of obstacle racing because we want to give millions of people the opportunity to push themselves to be their best; to race with others who share this passion; and to embrace the Spartan Code for training and competition in their lives. Just like people say, “I’m a runner,” or, “I’m a triathlete,” hundreds of thousands of people are now saying, “I’m a Spartan Racer.” – Selica Sevigny (Member of the Founding Few) Spartan Races are timed competitions that are orchestrated over standardized distances and feature natural and man-made obstacles specifically designed to test mind-body fitness. Every race at every distance will have you climbing, lifting, crawling, rolling, carrying, running, swimming, balancing, throwing, and jumping. All Spartan Race courses are deliberately designed to leave you exhausted and exhilarated; the completion of any of our courses is an accomplishment that deserves to be recognized, and each finisher has truly earned their Spartan Race medal. Our motto is “You’ll Know at the Finish Line” is not just an empty marketing phrase, but a sentiment that is shared by all of our athletes who have been bonded through the collective challenge of completing one of the world’s best obstacle courses.

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.
One water station. It’s August and it will be hot. Plan accordingly.

Hurricane Heat Available - Run with the Spartan Race Founders & Staff
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.
Successful finishers earn Hurricane Heat dogtags, a finisher shirt, a Hurricane Heate badge, entry into a closed networking group, and the chance to build relationships that will last well beyond the finish line.
Start time: Arrive Saturday morning at 5:30am, be ready to go at 6:00am SHARP. Don't be late!
Register using the normal registration link for Saturday - pick the special group!
