Nestled just outside of downtown Colorado Springs and Cheyenne Mountain State Park, the Spartan Fort Carson race weekend brought nearly 7,000 OCR enthusiasts to town.
Having an event located on/near a military base and naming it an "Honor Series" I expected a lot of patriotic fanfare and pride for our nation's military. However, at the end of the day, it just didn't measure up.
The Spartan Race Honor Series presented by USAA made its most recent stop at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs Colorado. The base was abuzz all week in preparation for the estimated 10,000 Spartans set to hit the course over the weekend.
Spartan Race announces a new way for civilians to participate side by side with the military in the Spartan Race Honor Series. The series kicks off on April 8 as part of the "Best Ranger" Competition. The first event kicks off with the Spartan Ranger Challenge Sprint where the race will combine parts of the "Best Ranger" competition into a Sprint distance event.
