Nothing says badass like the Spartan Races. The Spartan Races are a spectacular series of events which will bring out the beast in all of us whether you’re looking to invoke your inner toughie or prove once again that you are strong, fit & brave.
The Spartan is an obstacle course race that combines running & strength work to tackle obstacles in route. Depending on what distance you choose, the event can be as short as 3+ miles or as long as 12+. Lots of options, info on the various race distances from the Spartan website below:
There are three main types of Spartan Races.
For beginners we recommend the Sprint. Spartan’s shortest courses are 3+ miles and 20+ obstacles. Complete the race at your own pace. If you fail an obstacle along the way, you owe us 30 burpees before continuing on.
Ready for more? The Super is 8+ miles, 24+ obstacles, and often hosted on a tougher terrain.
The hardest of the three races is the Beast: 12+ miles and 30+ obstacles. We’ll leave the challenges of the course to your imagination.
For those who dare: check out our Ultra Beast, Hurricane Heat, Hurricane Heat 12 Hour and Agoge endurance races.
They also offer kids races and various events across the country. No matter where you live, there is most likely a Spartan Race near you! Put in your zip code on the race finder & a map with pop up with your recommended location.
The closest races to me are the Chicago Super & Sprint weekend on June 11th and the Indiana Sprint on July 9th. Which race is in your backyard? Look HERE.

I would choose the Pittsburgh Spring on October 8. I have my eye on the Spartan, already. It is my goal for showing myself just what I am capable of.
Fort Bragg NC! Military Spartan would be intense!
Breckenridge Beast! I need my Trifecta!!
Breckenridge, CO BEAST for sure!!
Indiana or Chicago sprint
Ultra Beast in Lake Tahoe, October 2, 2016. Just completed Grand Canyon R2R2R last Sunday as a “day” hike – 48 miles, with 22,000 feet of elevation change (took 22 hours, no running). Ultra Beast is not as long, but the obstacles and possibility of burpee penalties would make it worthwhile… What’s the catch though? Do we have to mention a product/company or something?
No catch. If you win, I give you a code for free entry. I do it all the time. With Spartan races, gave away an entry to both the Garmin & Flying Pig marathons earlier this year. Sometimes product. Sometimes race entries. Stay tuned, who knows what I’ll give away next!

Always wanted to try one… probably San Francisco Super. That distance sounds perfect for a challenge but not too bad for my first Spartan
Would love to win this for my son as the 27th is his Birthday. He would choose the ATL Sprint
I would choose the Atlanta Super!! Thanks for the chance!
Boston super. It was a lot of fun last year
I’ve got my eyes on the Fenway Park race.
Arizona Sprint. Have not done a Spartan race and would love to!
The Asheville Super is really tempting!
