The 2014 edition of the Vermont Ultra Beast is now open for registration. There will be no application process this year. Racers must decide for themselves whether or not they are capable of finishing the U.B.
Last year, the Ultra Beast course proved too difficult for many racers, so we're expecting to see a large number of athletes looking for redemption yet again. The Ultra Beast will cover 26+ miles in the hills of Vermont, with a few twists thrown in to keep it interesting. There will be time cutoffs in place for the safety of our racers, staff, and volunteers. These cutoffs are subject to change prior to and on race day, at the discretion of the Race Director.
If you do not finish the entire course for any reason, including missing a time cutoff, sustaining an injury, or quitting and walking off the mountain, you will not be offered a refund or future race credit. You will not earn a medal or Finisher Shirt, you will not be awarded any points. If you cannot complete all 26+ miles, you will be considered a DNF. It’s all or nothing. There is no map or details for the course. Don’t bother asking because we will not tell you.
As always, 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. Please do NOT complete a registration if you are not comfortable with these terms.
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 mostly self-supported. We will offer you limited water on the course and you will be responsible for carrying your own calories (Food, Gel, Bars, ECT). This is a Spartan Race, please arrive prepared for anything.
Once racers pick up their packets, they will receive instructions to the gear drop area. Gear Drop rules and guidelines will be distributed to racers via email.
Awards ceremony for the top finishers of the Spartan Race (varies by location, not always applicable)
