Make your way to Maryland International Raceway as you prepare to sprint in our nations capital. This is a venue that is usually reserved for race cars, but will be replaced by machines much more powerful: Spartans.

This seasonal drag strip has a capacity of 12,500 and is known for its car races and shows. With terrain usually primed for tires, prepare for some tough conditions. There will be hills (including track jumps) and lots of mud. Take this advice: get in some hill workouts before taking on this course -- your legs will thank you. Form a team and come dominate this 3+ mile Spartan Sprint.

Course Details

3+ miles

20-23Obstacles

40 minutes Fastest Time

The Sprint may be our shortest distance race, but it’s still a favorite 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.
