Race Information


Welcome to Averill’s Flathead Lake Lodge.

For the first time we are bringing a Spartan Beast and Sprint to Montana.  The lodge is located directly on the shores of Flathead Lake, the largest fresh water lake West of the Mississippi.

The air on the course is pristine, the trails rugged. The arduous 12+ miles of terrain and punishing obstacles will leave you breathless at the finish line. So be prepared. Anything is fair game for this Beast.

TRIFECTA watch: Conquer the Beast, then dominate the Sunday Sprint to complete two legs of your 2015 TRIFECTA.

The Elite Men’s and Women’s Spartan Sprint competition will be the featured race to be filmed by NBC Sports on Sunday, May 10th. In addition, NBC Sports will be on course all weekend filming the best stories in obstacle racing, so show up with your team and make sure to keep an eye out for the cameras!

TEAM REGISTRATION


To ensure that you are starting at the exact same start time as your friends is to create a Team during registration (or have your friends Join your team!). 

Any racers that are registered as part of a team, on the SAME DAY in the SAME TIME BLOCK (Elite vs. Morning vs. Afternoon), will be moved to the common team start time in each block when start times and bib numbers are assigned. 

Team times are NOT determined by the captains start time.Team times will be determined by a "majority rules" system.  Team members will be grouped together, within the Elite, Morning, OR Afternoon start time block, based on the preferred time that the majority of team members chose. 

Racers that are registered for Elite or Morning start times will NOT be grouped with racers in the Afternoon start times or vice versa.

WHAT TO WEAR


There’s no dress code, but you’ll be running in mud and water, climbing hills and mountains, crawling under barbed wire and jumping fire. We do suggest trail running shoes and lightweight apparel that drains well; remember, it's likely you will be soaking wet and/or muddy.
A great rule of thumb is to race in what you train in - new shoes on race day are NOT recommended.
