This no-frills, no obstacles Spartan 10K puts racers in their natural habitat - the wild. Set near the intersection of the infamous Appalachian Trail, the route brings years of history with it. Come out to see what you are made of.

Spartan Trail - Palmerton route


This simple, yet stunning race brings the focus back on to the runner. There are no obstacles, there is nothing to distract you from the task at hand. Just you and the 10KM of trails through Pennsylvania's beautiful backcountry. PA's Blue Mountain gives runners a chance to test out their mountain legs and grind through the dense forest.

Get to the top of Blue Mountain, take in the view and then get back to work with the tricky descent.
