Race Information


“We are determined to be the leader among indigenous communities guided by the Sovereignty and grounded in Yavapai Tradition and Culture. We strive to improve the health, well being and happiness of our nation.” - Fort McDowell Site.

Welcome to Fort McDowell Rodeo Grounds.

This race is set just 35 miles from Phoenix. The land is a vast 24,000 acres with elevations in the park rising to 3,000 feet along the western boundary, at the base of the McDowell Mountains. While we won’t make our Spartans run all of that, the course will explore many parts of the valley.

Come race in this legendary and stunning venue which is sure to have twist and turns, as well as highs and lows. Conquer this blistering Arizona course and know that you’ve made history in a place built on a lasting future.

HURRICANE HEAT


Saturday morning @ 5:30am sharp.

Show up early to run with the Spartan Staff in a whole new way!

Typically lasting 3-4 hours, the Hurricane Heat is a unique event, traversing on and off the Spartan Race Course. Hurricane Heat Participants will be assigned a team upon arrival and will be expected to work together to complete any and all challenges set before them, as a team.  You can't finish alone.

Dominate the course like the good founders intended.  There are no chips, no clock, just a fun run Spartan-style that represents what our company and our athletes are about…getting up when you’re knocked down and finishing what you start. And Burpees, lots of burpees.

Remember: You don’t want to be late. Plan to bring head lamps and glow sticks (required).

Successful finishers earn Hurricane Heat dog tags, a finisher shirt, entry into a closed networking group, and the chance to build relationships that will last well beyond the finish line.
