Recurring Event Event Series: Poconos Spartan Race Weekend

Poconos Spartan Race Weekend

July 16, 2023 @ 7:30 AM - 5:00 PM

$90 – $124

In Palmerton, you’ll scale Pennsylvania’s Blue Mountain, which has tested Spartans year after year and is one of our longest standing venues for a reason. Run in and out of dense forests as you scale the rugged hill designed to test even elites. If you’re strong and determined enough, you’ll be rewarded with amazing views of the Poconos from the top – and then your challenging descent begins. Don’t race alone. Invite your friends and family to cheer you on. This is an amazing course for spectators. They can take the chair lift ride to the top for jaw-dropping views of the course and surrounding area. Put yourself to the test at this “must race” event.

This weekend also features
Spartan Trail Race.

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.

Spartan Sprint

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.

Spartan Super

If you’ve completed a Spartan Sprint or 10K+ on the road, you’re ready for Super. Here, trail running meets obstacles, with courses set in incredible locations around the world. The Super is the most demanding and fun 10K you’ll complete, anywhere.

Super obstacles are more difficult compared to shorter Spartan events, and with a distance of 10K (6.2 miles), you’ll need a pace strategy. There are Super-specific obstacles to tackle, and elevation gain will often be more demanding.

If you’re new to this sport, one of best preparations is to complete a Spartan Sprint. You’ll get a solid understanding of the demands of obstacle course racing. If you’ve raced before, 10K training plans are a good start. You’ll also want to practice actual heavy carries, and work on overhead grip strength. Spartan has specific training plans to help you.
