Course Description:

The sun sets at 6:45pm on race day. As the course is developed we will be establishing cut-offs at checkpoints throughout the course. Racers will have to reach various checkpoints, BEFORE the designated cut off time. If they do not reach the checkpoint on time, they will be removed for their own safety. We are exploring all of our options to keep racers on the course for as long as possible, including the allowed use of headlamps to complete certain portions of the course.

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.

There are 1-2 water crossings/obstacles on the course that racers must navigate. Athletes that can not swim will be given PFDs (Personal Floatation Device).

The terrain is beautiful and we are lucky to have the opportunity to race on it. No littering. If you do, you will be disqualified and pulled from the course.

Aid Stations:

Due to the difficulty of this race course, we have added five water stations throughout the course. *It will NOT be mandatory for Elite Male and Female Beast Racers to carry a hydration pack. *Hydration packs ARE still mandatory for all other racers.

All racers will be REQUIRED TO HAVE A WATER SOURCE ON THEM at the start line in order to start the race. Yes, you read that correctly, mandatory gear in the form of a water source (camelback, bottle, fuel belt, etc). It is up to you to determine how significant of a water source you will need. We highly recommend you also have some calories with you on the course. It will take Olympic caliber athletes 3 hours to complete this race. Most of you will take 5-8 hours. If you don’t plan your nutrition and hydration properly you will risk not finishing the event and you are putting your health at risk.

Awards:

Awards ceremony for the top finishers of the Spartan Race (varies by location, not always applicable)

Prizes:

Spartan Race prizes awarded to teams
