Every Spartan Trail Race on the 2024 U.S. Schedule

If you've never run a trail race, you are seriously missing out. Find a zero-obstacle Spartan Trail race near you this year and sign up now.

There's something so therapeutic about trudging through dense woods and clambering up steep mountainsides with nothing but you, your thoughts, and the satisfying sound of your sneakers crunching atop twigs, leaves, and pebbles. 

In a Spartan Trail race, there's no bottlenecking at the start or at fuel stations like in a typical road race. There are no lines of spectators cheering you on as you pass through a crowded city street. There's no loud music. There are birds chirping, there's wind, and there's water.

For some, that's a deal-breaker. When you're miles and miles deep into a race, when you haven't seen another person for a half hour, and when you begin to question your sanity, your true strength is tested. But then you break through and meet your true self on the trail. If you're up for the life-changing challenge, here's every epic Spartan Trail race on the U.S. schedule right now.

racers compete in one of the most epic spartan trail races

If you've ever run an obstacle course race in Palmerton, your quads have probably yet to forgive you. Blue Mountain Resort is one of our oldest, most original OCR venues because it continues to challenge even our most battle-hardened racers (which is why it's our fourth most-difficult race in the U.S.).

This 10K, however — while certainly packed with leg-burning climbs — pushes you past the skiable boundaries into miles of pristine, wooded, single track trails. You'll be surrounded by swaying ferns on this racer-favorite course. Plus, what's more peaceful than floating over fallen Pocono pine needles?
