From the organiser

There are two HUGE reasons to race Asheville:

First, its an awesome challenge. The Asheville course has been designed to test our elite Spartans. Over the past three years, the course has earned its place alongside Killington and Wintergreen as Spartans most brutal courses. Trust us Asheville will test your physical and mental limits.

Second, its a stunningly beautiful course. Youll chase glory in the shadow of a massive quarry, and earn your rewards of beautiful vistas overlooking stunning spruce-fir forests.

Youll enjoy soft grass and cool forest, but youll also face lots of granite, grit, dirt and mud. At Asheville, you will EARN your finishers medal. Youll face rocky, steep slopes and obstacles designed to test the elites.

Dont race alone. Invite your friends and family to cheer you on and enjoy the area together. This is a fun area for spectators and racers alike. You can visit the famous Blue Ridge Mountains (home of amazing sunsets), go zip-lining, take a balloon ride, explore caves, check out the outstanding local dining, or grab a beer at one of Ashevilles many microbreweries.

Course Details

8-10 miles & 24-29 Obstacles (Super Distance)

There’s nothing mediocre about this middle distance race. The Spartan Super offers the ideal blend between distance and speed. Offering racers a true athletic test. If you consider yourself a more seasoned athlete determined to push beyond excuses, you just might have the mettle for a Spartan Super. Serving up 24-29 Spartan Obstacles and 8-10 miles of rugged terrain, the Spartan Super spares no one. Developed as the second race in the Spartan Trifecta, the Super is where you prove to yourself you’ve got everything it takes to face the Beast.

3+ miles & 20-23 Obstacles (Sprint Distance)

The Sprint may be our shortest distance race, but it’s still a favourite amongst both new and returning racers. It’s the perfect distance for those looking to start their Spartan journey. The Sprint also allows returning racers a manageable distance to see how far they can push themselves. Delivering 20-23 obstacles over 3-5 miles, you’ll never run the same race twice. Once you complete the sprint you are 1/3 on your Spartan TRIFECTA: The ultimate Spartan achievement.
