Welcome to Laughlin, Nevada! Located 90 miles south of Las Vegas, 230 miles north of Phoenix and 280 miles east of Los Angeles, this venue is conveniently central for our Southwest Spartans.

Laughlin is a diamond in the desert. Sitting by the Colorado River, its known for gaming, entertainment, and water recreation. This lively strip in the middle of the desert is prepared for a Spartan invasion with its nine different resorts with nearly 11,000 rooms.

This area is so much more than a family-friendly entertainment attraction. Its part of the Mojave Desert, the driest desert in North America, growing 2,000 species of plants and home to a protected desert tortoise. While running on course youll be surrounded by breathtaking mountain ranges, including Spirit Mountain. Yuman-speaking Native Americans believe Spirit Mountain to be the center of all creation.

The Sprint and Super courses will be a mixture of dusty desert tracks, beautiful mountain views and flat, wide-open spaces. While you wont encounter elevation gain or mud on this course, you can use this as an opportunity to open up your stride and run wild.

Spartan Race – Laughlin - Super and Sprint Weekend routes

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.

—————————————

Kids Race:

Spartan Race isn't just for adults. Our Spartan Kids Race offers two distances for the little Spartans in your life. Based on age, our Kids races have obstacles in them just like the grown up versions. Come watch your future Spartans run, jump, and play just like they're supposed to.

Kit List
Super and Sprint:

Your ID
Barcode
Towel & extra (dry) clothes
Recommended: Headlamp and Camelback
We recommend dressing in performance gear (NOT COTTON). Think compression tights or shorts and breathable tops made from water wicking material. Wear comfortable shoes that you’ve trained in, but beware, they are going to get dirty.In addition to your clothes, consider fuel when planning for race day. For a Sprint distance you can normally get away with the water stations on course, but for our longer distances (Super, Beast, Ultra) we strongly suggest wearing a hydration pack and carrying energy gels or Clif bars.

Spectators
Spartan loves Spectators
Most USA venues will require one to purchase a Festival Pass to gain entry as a spectator, so check on the race's specific event page for pricing. Typically, the fee is $25 when purchased on race day. Kids 13 and under are free. There is no spectator age limit.
With the Festival Pass, you get a coupon at registration (redeemable at the merchandise tent). Additionally you will have viewing access of some obstacles, the start and finish line, the vendor tents, and hot food for sale on the grounds. Enjoy music while watching your friends and loved ones slip and slide through the Spartan course, from the Spartan festival grounds. Raffles, entertainment, spectator challenges, free muddy hugs from Spartan athletes, and all the other festival perks makes spectating all worth while. The next ticket you will want to buy will be a race entry.

Yes, but can I get on the course to watch my racer?
As for roaming the course or watching each obstacle, each course will have different restrictions. On some ski mountains, you can take a ski lift to the top where there will be obstacles to watch. At ALL events, the festival area is situated within sight of at least 6 obstacles where you can catch your family and friends.

My Junior Spartan(s) are in the Kids Race, do I need to purchase a Festival Pass?
Each Kids Race registration includes two free Festival Passes per FAMILY. If you have one child registered, you'll get two free passes. If you have two children registered, you'll still only receive two free passes. There is no need to register these spectators online ahead of time - just show up with your mini-spartans and check in with them at the Kids Race registration line.

What can I bring into the race with me?
You'll want to check the Athlete Guide and/or Event Page for your specific event for any special guidelines on what you may/may not bring into an event. However, as a general rule, outside food and drink, coolers, and tents are not allowed. You are welcome to bring folding chairs, backpacks, etc.

Volunteers

  • Did the Sprint in 2018

    First time racing at this venue and in the age group category. Spartan used the hills available on the course, along with sand and loose gravel, to keep it challenging. Obstacles were challenging as usual and spread out enough to get distance between racers keeping lines down to a minimum. Great weather, mild and sunny, kept the race dry but rolling mud/dunk wall got you wet in the end.
