Carolinas Spartan Race Event Weekend
November 20 @ 6:00 AM - 5:00 PM$92 – $202
We’re off to the races at the Tryon International Equestrian Center. This course’s well-trodden trails make for solid terrain. But, you’ll still have to climb through red clay and traverse rushing creeks if you want to reach the finish 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.
A 5K that will change your life. The Sprint is the first stop for many in their Spartan journey. It’s also an event that some returning Spartans focus on for years to come for its challenges of speed and obstacle intensity over a shorter distance.
A classic obstacle course racing experience. The Sprint combines relatively easy trail running with 20 obstacles, held on off-road terrain featuring water and mud. Climb walls, crawl under wire, traverse monkey bars, aim a spear throw, and more.
Spartan is a true all-round physical and mental test. Ideal for runners, weightlifters, functional fitness fans, and newbies alike, there are parts of each Sprint that push you in all areas. Focus training on areas you’re not so good at, and if that’s all of them, no problem. Spartan brings together world-class elite athletes, to people just trying to get active.
The ultimate Spartan test; a soul crushing half marathon with 30 obstacles. You’ll rarely find a Beast on flat ground, so your legs will burn with brutal ascents and descents. The Beast is notorious around the world for its difficulty.
Only battle hardened Spartans dare take on the Beast, along with a few foolhardy first-timers. Complete it solo (half marathoners take note), or with friends or a formal team so you can push each other through the unavoidable moments of self-doubt.
You’ll need a decent aerobic base, which means you’re okay running and walking for at least three hours. While you don’t have to run 21K in training, regular long runs are a must. Bodyweight exercises like pull-ups and pushups, and weighted functional training, will prepare your body for the onslaught. Test your nutrition and hydration strategy during training runs.
With foundations in traditional ultrarunning, the Spartan Ultra merges the sport of obstacle course racing along with 50K courses and 60 obstacles to create a truly unique and brutal challenge. This is a serious ultra-distance athletic challenge.
The Ultra almost always features formidable elevation gain, darkness, extreme weather, and unexpected challenges. Ultra events are a great place to meet equally crazy people. Each year, a 24hr Ultra World Championship sorts out the world’s best.
