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.

Spartan Race - NORTH LAKE TAHOE ULTRA AND BEAST WEEKEND routes

Beast Distance:

Half marathon (21.1k/13.1miles) and 30+ obstacles. If you’re looking to unleash your inner beast and go to places you never imaged, the Spartan Beast is perfect for you. The Spartan Beast will test everything you’re made of your strength, your endurance, your resolve. The unpredictable terrain and Spartan Obstacles are masterfully designed to push you deep into your discomfort zone, and well past those self-imposed obstacles you once considered your limits. Beast mode: on

Kids Race:

Spartan Race isn't just for adults. Spartan Kids Races offer 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I skip an obstacle? Is there a penalty?
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.
Will there be photos?
5-7 days after the event, the event page will display professional photos from the event completely free of charge! You will be emailed when your personal photos are ready.
Can I take part as a team?
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.
