Race Information


The area surrounding Chicago is primarily flat farm land, until you reach Cliff's Insane Terrain in Marseilles. People travel from all over the Midwest to test their 4WD vehicles in the muddy park. It makes a perfect location for Spartans to test themselves on an 8+ mile Super and 4+ mile Sprint course. On a dry day the course is very muddy, and if it rains, even walking becomes difficult. 

*The pricing table below reflects Afternoon Start time prices only.  Elite and Morning Start times will have an additional cost.

Successful finishers earn Hurricane Heat dog tags, a finisher shirt, a Hurricane Heat badge, entry into a closed networking group, and the chance to build relationships that will last well beyond the finish line. Start time: Arrive Friday evening at 5:30pm, be ready to go at 6:00pm SHARP. Don't be late!

RACE SCHEDULE


8:00am Elite Men
8:15am Elite Women
8:30 & 8:45am Confirmed Start Time Waves
9:00am Open Waves Begin

Starting at 8am, waves of 250+ racers will be released every 15 minutes. You will receive an email approximately one week before the race with your race times. Make a note of this time as it tells you what heat you are running in on race day. YOUR exact start time in the group you registered for will be posted under the Race Day tab a few days prior to the events date.

ARRIVAL


Plan to arrive 1.5 hours BEFORE your designated start time to allow enough time to pick up your packet, drop your stuff at bag check, and get warmed up. If you are one of those chronically late people, tell yourself you need to be there 2 hours early. If you’re an early bird, registration opens at 6:30am on Saturday and Sunday morning.

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


Bib numbers are available the week of the race & will be posted under the Race Day tab a few days prior to the events date. On race day, make sure you know your bib number as this will be used to locate your bib packet - this will include your headband, bib, timing chip and most importantly, FREE drink ticket! 

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.

BAG CHECK


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.

AID STATIONS


3-4 aid stations on course with water, maybe some other goodies. We’ll finalize this as we get closer to race day. All racers should carry extra water and energy sources as this course will be very challenging.

FINISHERS RECEIVE


For starters, yes, you will be getting your badge of honor, the one-of-a-kind, bragging rights of your badass finishers medal (if you want to really bling it out, have it personalized using our partner site, iTab – they can get this all set for you. You’ll also get a quality race t-shirt (yes, more bragging rights) and shortly after the event, you’ll get your own photos to prove your badassness (see Photos section for more on that)

PHOTOS


Professional event day photos will be posted on the event page 5-7 days after the event, FREE OF CHARGE! You don’t have to stay up all night checking the site for this – we’ll email you when your photos are ready!

EDIT/ TRANSFER REGISTRATION


Depending on how many racers we have, we try to accommodate date and/or time transfers. If you have questions about a scenario unique to you, please visit our Contact Us page to touch base.

Kids Race

KIDS SIZED OBSTACLE RACING – REAL OBSTACLES. REAL FUN!

Why obstacle racing for kids?  Promote child-like adventure and instill a healthy lifestyle.

Spartan Race is not only limited to adult fun! Bring the kids (ages 4-13) who can participate in their very own Jr. Spartan race.  Spartan Kids Race promotes health, physical activity and FUN! Spartan Kids Race is about a return to the childlike sense of adventure that we have lost while getting sucked up into “normal life” of over-scheduled and over-organized activities. Spartan Race wants to keep this sense of adventure alive in our kids BEFORE they lose it. Today, a typical child devotes an average 7.5 hours each day to entertainment media: TV, video games, cell phones, and movies. Get up, get out, and get gritty!

What you need to know – two age groups, Junior Varsity kids aged 4-8 and Varsity kids aged 8-13

Varsity Spartan | 1 mile
Varsity Spartan Start Times: Saturday - 10am, 12pm, and 2pm | Sunday - 10am and 12pm

Jr Varsity Spartan | 0.5 miles
Junior Varsity Spartan Start Times: Saturday - 10:30am, 12:30pm, and 2:30pm | Sunday - 10:30am and 12:30pm

Pre-Register: $25 / Day of Registration: $30 Each child will receive a T-shirt and Finisher's Medal. Three start times for each distance for the Spartan Kids Race provide adequate flexibility for the entire family to now race!

Kids Registration and check-in day of the event closes at 2pm on Saturday and 12pm on Sunday, so please be early.

To register, click the REGISTER button on the top right of this page. Each family will receive two free spectator passes at registration.
