For those who wanted to start their Independence Day celebrations early, Spartan returned to the Baltimore International Raceway for the annual D.C. Spartan Sprint the weekend of June 29th.
In celebration of the summer solstice, athletes in Northern Alberta took to the trails for a twelve-hour evening obstacle course race at The Boneyard Compound. Participants were tasked with completing as many 8 kilometer loops featuring 26 obstacles as possible.
The Black Swamp Dash is the second event of the Ohio Grand Slam and features 3.3 miles of winding paths through open fields, dense, wooded trails, and muck covered swampland.
Does MuckFest live up to its own hype as a fun way to spend a day with a group of friends? I gathered a small team with varying levels of mud run experience to find out.
The Spartan Monterey Sprint course is a great compromise between steeper, harder-to-run courses like Big Bear or Tahoe, and the flatter, less 'challenging' locations like Chino, or Arizona, making it perfect for those seeking a moderately difficult course they can still run.
