REGISTRATION - HOW IT WILL WORK in 2014
The 2014 edition of the Vermont Ultra Beast is now open for registration. There will be no application process this year. Racers must decide for themselves whether or not they are capable of finishing the U.B.
Last year, the Ultra Beast course proved too difficult for many racers, so we're expecting to see a large number of athletes looking for redemption yet again. The Ultra Beast will cover 26+ miles in the hills of Vermont, with a few twists thrown in to keep it interesting.
There will be time cutoffs in place for the safety of our racers, staff, and volunteers. These cutoffs are subject to change prior to and on race day, at the discretion of the Race Director.
If you do not finish the entire course for any reason, including missing a time cutoff, sustaining an injury, or quitting and walking off the mountain, you will not be offered a refund or future race credit. You will not earn a medal or Finisher Shirt, you will not be awarded any points. If you cannot complete all 26+ miles, you will be considered a DNF. It’s all or nothing.
There is no map or details for the course. Don’t bother asking because we will not tell you.
As always, if you're not sure if you're ready, or you spend more than one hour per year at Bed, Bath and Beyond, please only register for the Beast. The Ultra Beast will be too much for you. Please do NOT complete a registration if you are not comfortable with these terms.
NOTE: By signing up for the 2014 Spartan Ultra Beast you agree to the terms and conditions outlined above.

WAIVERS AND IDs
All racers, spectators, and volunteers MUST sign a waiver (above) and show a valid photo ID upon arrival. Be sure to bring a copy of your signed waiver and hand it to one of our awesome volunteers in the registration tent. We try to have copies of waivers available, but save yourself some time, print it here and bring it with you on race day. We cannot release bibs without a signed waiver for each participant.
BIB PACKET PICKUP
There will be a MANDATORY pre-race packet pickup on Saturday, September 20th.
GEAR BAG DROP
Once racers pick up their packets (see packet pickup details below), they will receive instructions to the gear drop area. Gear Drop rules and guidelines will be distributed to racers via email.
WHAT TO BRING
Along with your ID, waiver, parking cash and knowing your bib #, bring your friends and family - or anyone else who needs proof of your badassness and obstacle course skills or someone who needs a demonstration of your mud flinging abilities. Don't forget your money for parking and fun! You should probably bring a towel and some extra clothes because your clothes will get muddy and wet, but you probably already guessed this.
NOTE: Outside food and drink WILL NOT be allowed into the venue, so make sure to leave it at home or in your car! Same with pets, no pets please.
This race will be mostly self-supported. We will offer you limited water on the course and you will be responsible for carrying your own calories (Food, Gel, Bars, ECT). This is a Spartan Race, please arrive prepared for anything.
Try and leave as much stuff as you can at home or in your car— but for the stuff you can't leave behind, or that you don't want covered in mud and water, we will have a secure place to check in your gear. Check in is $5/bag – you will get a wrist band to wear that matches the band we put on your bag so make sure you keep that safe.
WHAT TO WEAR
We said "adventure" right? Well folks let's get adventurous! There’s no dress code, per se, but you’ll be running in mud and water, climbing hills and mountains, crawling under barbed wire and jumping fire. So choose wisely my friends.
- Unique Ultra Beast Finishers Medal
- One of a kind T-Shirt that will never be sold and can only be earned
