About Spartan Race
Spartan Race is an international obstacle racing series with three levels of courses: three-mile Sprints with 10 obstacles; eight-mile Olympic (Supers) with 15 obstacles; and 10- to 12-mile Ultras (Beast). Death Race is the annual, grand-finale event. Racers may compete as individuals or teams. The series is the brainchild of Joe Desena of Pittsfield, Vt., home of the legendary Death Race.
Spartan Races are held in each region of the U.S. starting with a Sprint and working up to an Ultra. World Championship Ultra will be held annually in Vermont starting in 2012. Courses are muddy, creative and extreme — uniquely designed to exhaust and exhilarate as well as test competitors’ strength, stamina, mental and emotional fitness and sense of humor.
