Spartan Race returned again this year to a very familiar venue, Killington Resort, nestled high in the mountains of Vermont. What was once home to the Spartan World Championship race is now a more obtainable opportunity for many OCR athletes in the Northeast to complete their coveted Spartan trifecta. The course in years past was 16+ miles with many thousands of feet elevation gain.
Even though Savage Race is a big-name company in the industry, the event in Barre, MA didn’t feel corporate at all. The old school printouts posted on plywood boards before registration with everyone’s name, bib number and start time made it seem very informal and less technical. The OCR community is always very welcoming and inviting, and everything from this Savage Race at Carter & Stevens Farm delivered. I look forward to running this event again next year in 2018.
