The Races

This epic venue was once a host to the 1960 Olympic Winter Games. Spartans are in for an intense race full of twists, turns slopes, and stunning views. With a surface elevation of 6,224 feet and a max elevation upwards of 9,000 feet; your lungs and quads better be ready for the long haul of rocky running on the slopes. The alpine swim promises a splash of fresh mountain water, and after the race, the Village is an awesome place to eat, shop and celebrate in the festival area.

The Beast distance is Spartan's 2021 North American Championship. The regional championship event is the culmination of the United States and Canada’s National Series, bringing the best obstacle course racers on the continent to this picturesque destination with $62,000 in prize money on the line.

All finishers receive a T-shirt, medal and professional photos, and every registration comes with access to the Spartan Account to track your tickets, race results, photos, teams, and challenges.

This weekend also features Spartan Trail races.
