North Lake Tahoe Spartan Ultra World Championship Weekend Day 1
September 24 @ 7:30 AM - 5:00 PM$112 – $155
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 a long haul of rocky running on the slopes. The notorious 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.
This weekend will feature our 2022 Ultra World Championship race. The most resilient athletes from across the world will come together to take on 24 hours of grueling, obstacle dense racing. Who will come out on top? You’ll have to meet us in North Lake Tahoe to find out. Also, for the first time ever this weekend will feature a 10K Night Ultra Lap event. Take on one lap of the Ultra to get a taste of the Ultra Championship experience, while also cheering on the 24 hour Ultra Spartans on course.
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.
