About this event

Set at the venue of the 1960 Olympic Winter Games, this is an epic location for a Spartan Race. Expect to be short of breath due to the high altitude (9000+ft), challenging obstacles, and stunning views. There's plenty of yoga opportunities in Squaw Valley to help you recover.

NO. Skipping obstacles is not part of the Spartans' ethos. Obstacles are there to be overcome! Spartan races strongly discourage skipping obstacles without at least giving them a try, as it is unfair to others that do attempt them. However, if there is an obstacle that you simply cannot overcome despite your effort and you NEED to miss it out, the forfeit is completing a set of burpees before you are allowed to move on. That can add up to a lot of burpees if you have to miss every obstacle, so come with a positive mindset that you can overcome any obstacle on the course. … read more

Yes, a lot of teams take part in Spartan races in the Open heats. There are discounts and offers available for teams, so get a group of friends together for the challenge! Your friendship might be tested in some of the difficult stages, but it will be stronger than ever afterwards once you've been through it all together. Why not sign up with a team from work and show off in front of your employees or your boss? The mud, hills, and obstacles will be a great scene change from the office desk. There is a special corporate package, giving an amazing opportunity to boost team morale. … read more
