10-12 mile Obstacle Race from Hell. If you have done any race anywhere
in the world: whether a mud run, fun run, olympic run, bike race, death
march or any kind of event claiming to be the ""toughest race on the
planet"" you will be happy to know that this is where it ends..THIS IS
THE SPARTAN BEAST...Step up and get out of your comfort zone, many will arrive, but few will leave!
Mandatory Headlamps - All racers who are still on the course at 5pm will be required to have a headlamp. We expect it will take most people longer than 3 hours to complete this course, some up to 7 hours. If you don’t have a headlamp you will not be able to continue. Please plan accordingly.
Course Closing - Course closes at 8:30pm. Any remaining racers will be pulled from the course then. Time is subject to change.
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.
Four. Please hydrate properly.

Hurricane Heat Available - Run with the Spartan Race Founders & Staff
he Spartan Hurricane Heat is a special opportunity that gives athletes the chance to run with the Founders and staff of Spartan Race in a unique and memorable way. To celebrate our season-ending Texas Beast, we'll be running the first Hurricane Heat on a Beast course in 2012, on Friday evening, December 7th.
We'll run the course backwards, sideways, or while carrying our buddies, but one thing is for certain: no two Hurricane Heats will ever be the same. There are no timing chips, no bib numbers, no bells and whistles, just a true Spartan-style workout that represents what we're all about…getting up when you’re knocked down and finishing what you start. You'll be put on a team, and you'll rely on that team to ensure that you finish as a team.
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 Friday evening, December 7th, no later than 6:00pm. Be dressed and ready to go, we'll be heading out on course at 6:30pm SHARP. Don't be late! It will get dark quickly, so headlamps, glowsticks and warm clothing are mandatory, so please come prepared.
