Spartan Race in Phoenix was nothing like what you'd expect when you think racing in the desert. Most of us assume Arizona conditions would be hot & unbearable, but that was not the case at all this past weekend with perfect weather in the mid-70s.
Spartan Race rolled into Arizona on Saturday, February 27, 2016 with a sprint distance of just over 4 miles. As they do at every US Spartan Race in 2016, two types were offered for the Kid's Race, the 1/2 mile "Jr. Varsity" and the 1 mile "Varsity" distances.
