As with any mountain course, youre guaranteed to see it all: peaks and valleys, slopes and climbs, ropes and walls, Spartan Kids and Spartan Pros. Discover what it means to be a Spartan and meet others as you battle toward one common goal: the finish line.

As is par for mountain courses, youll be sent up and down -- a lot -- thankfully theres the reward of a view from the outstanding heights. Come prepared for the unexpected in the weather department mountain weather is notoriously unpredictable. Spartans always come prepared. If this if your first time on a Spartan Race course dont underestimate how long youll be out there. Be sure to bring enough to fuel you through the course. Some things are certain: there will be rope climbs, there will be barbed wire, and there will be heavy carries. No one likes 30 burpees and thats why its wise to train hard, train well and be prepared to conquer each and every obstacle.

Please note - there will be a $14 additional charge for insurance, as well as a processing fee once you have applied your code at the Spartan Checkout. The prices given on Let's Do This are equal to the total amount you will end up paying.

You make a note to sign up for that and the pie-eating contest after you run. You see obstacles in the distance mud-covered people bouncing on trampolines, rocketing down a huge water slide, and climbing massive nets and your surging excitement confirms what you already knew: Today is going to be awesome!
