The 2013 edition of the Vermont Ultra Beast is now open for
pre-registration. After the 2012 Vermont course proved to too difficult
for many racers, we're expecting to see a large number of athletes
looking for redemption in the hills of Vermont. The Ultra Beast will
cover 26+ miles before finding the finish line, with a few new twists
thrown in to keep it interesting . For your own safety and for the
competitive nature of the event, each racer will be required to submit a
race resume that highlights your athletic background.
For 2013, we will have two new rules:
1. Each racer may only compete in the Beast, or the Ultra Beast, but not both. It will not be possible to win both events in 2013. You must choose: Beast or Ultra Beast.
2. If you cannot complete all 26+ miles, you will be considered a DNF. You will NOT be considered a Beast Finisher if you're only able to complete 13+ miles. It's all or nothing.
If you're not sure if you're ready, or you spend more than one hour per year at Bed, Bath and Beyond, please only register for the Beast. The Ultra Beast will be too much for you.
Every Spartan Race is a baptism.
The Ultra Beast is considered an exorcism.
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.
This race will be largely unsupported. One aid station will be on course with water and/or sports drinks at an undisclosed location on the course.
Awards ceremony for the top finishers of the Spartan Race (varies by location, not always applicable)
Spartan Race prizes awarded to teams
