Towering cactus plants, unassuming twists and turns, dusty trails, and dry heat will test your resolve as you take on one of the more convoluted courses on the calendar. It may be February, but this early-season desert challenge is waiting. Are you tough enough to tackle these arid 5Ks and 10Ks?

Jacksonville Spartan Event Weekend - Sprint, Super, Kids
Welcome back to WW Ranch Motocross Park. Located just 20 minutes from downtown Jacksonville, this Spartan-favorite venue — where racers can complete a 5K Sprint, a 10K Super, and even Kids races — is the perfect quick winter getaway. The course will be fast and flat, hopping from soft, sandy track sections to open pastures. You'll be racing along the motocross trails, in and around the beautiful lake and right through a legendary clay pigeon graveyard on the property. This is an ideal race for first-timers with its low elevation gain, and a great speed test for more seasoned racers.
In 2023, we tested our fast, epic new 3K event format with our grittiest Age Groupers, drastically hardened our obstacles — namely the Barbed Wire Crawl — and brought the first race of the U.S. National Series, a 5K Sprint, to this marshy playground. Which soul-crushing surprises will we see in 2024?
