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.

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.

What To Wear
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.

  • 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.
