The Spartan Sprint course is a 3+ mile battlefield of insane mud running with 10+ obstacles to test your physical strength and mental endurance.  Some of our obstacles include climbing over slippery walls, jumping over fire & even surviving a gladiator pit!  Are you tough enough for a Spartan Race? Register and you will know at the finish line!

When: March 23rd & 24th 2013

Distance: Around 4 miles. Fastest time = 35 minutes.

Start Times: Heats start at 8am with up to 250 racers and continue every 30 minutes throughout the day. Enter the 8am “Elite” heat if you want to be as competitive as possible and race against the best.

Aid Stations: TBD, we almost felt soft after giving you one in last year's

All Racers Receive:
- Finishers Medal
- T-Shirt
- Free Beer ticket for anyone 21 and over
- Free Mud
- A chance to do things you would never choose to do on your own

Spectators:Want a front row seat to all the Spartan action? Spectator tickets are available for $20 online (click the yellow register button above like your registering for the race, and you choose the spectator option), or purchase them onsite for $25 (please bring cash). As a Spartan Race spectator, you'll receive $5 Spartan bucks redeemable at the merchandise tent, entry to the rocking festival area, a festival grounds map, access to some of the obstacles on course, not to mention the epic Gladiator pit and finish line. Enjoy the music and watch your friends and loved ones slip and slide through the Spartan course in the relative safety and comfort of the Spartan Race festival grounds! You can also test your fitness in our festival challenges including the Pull-Up Challenge, Slosh Pipe Challenge, Kaiser Challenge and Traverse Wall Challenge. Beware, the next ticket you'll want to buy might have you standing on the Spartan starting line!

Hurricane Heat

The Spartan Hurricane Heat is a special opportunity that gives athletes the chance to meet and run with the Founders and staff of Spartan Race in a unique and memorable way. Usually held early Saturday morning or Friday night (Head lamps and glow sticks required!), you'll be put on a team, and you'll finish as a team. No timing chips, no clock, no bells and whistles.
We'll run the course backwards, sideways, or while carrying our buddies, but one thing is for certain: no two Hurricane Heats will be the same. This is what Spartan Race is all about… getting up when you’re knocked down and finishing what you start.

Successful finishers earn Hurricane Heat dogtags, a finisher shirt, a Hurricane Heate badge, entry into a closed networking group, and the chance to build relationships that will last well beyond the finish line.

Start time: Arrive Saturday morning at 5:30am, be ready to go at 6:00am SHARP. Don't be late!

Kids Race

Spartan Race is not only limited to adult fun! Bring the kids ages 4-13 who can participate in their very own Jr. Spartan race. They will enjoy the thrill of the run, a variety of scaled down obstacles and their own mini festival area filled with games and children's challenges!
