Joshua Tree Spartan Hurricane Heat Trifecta Weekend
October 7 @ 6:00 PM - October 9 @ 2:00 PM$75 – $255
The U.S. Hurricane Heat Trifecta Weekend is here! Test your mental and physical fortitude at Flamingo Heights Park. Located outside Joshua Tree National Park, east of Los Angeles and near Palm Springs, Flamingo Heights is in the Mojave Desert. Hurricane Heat participants are in for an extraordinary adventure as they will be among the native and rare Joshua Trees in the desert terrain.
This extreme event began in Hurricane Irene in 2011, when weather was so brutal all races were shut down. Spartan put out a call: all those hard enough to face the storm, show up on race day. Most didn’t, a few did; and the Hurricane Heat was born.
Hurricane Heat is a mainly team-based event designed to take your mental and physical capabilities to new limits. Expect grueling physical tasks, problem solving, leadership challenges, as well as solo performance tests under extreme conditions.
Personal evolution is the goal of Hurricane Heat. There are no medals here. However, those strong enough to finish a Hurricane Heat will take home some highly sought after swag. The shirt says you’re one in a select club of Spartans worldwide.
Each Hurricane Heat is entirely unpredictable, so ensuring your all-round functional fitness is as good as it can be by event day is key to a successful and enjoyable event. Distance running and marches with a weighted pack are excellent prep, as is bodyweight loaded workouts featuring squats, pushups, dips, burpees, and jumping jacks.
