Atlanta Sprint Weekend

If you were to make a checklist of the ideal Spartan Race terrain, you could check-off a number of things at the Reebok Spartan Race in Conyers, Georgia. This course offers hills, forests, rough terrain, mud, more hills, and of course, single and doubletrack trails. Ideally, a Spartan-worthy venue would have all of these boxes checked. Centennial Olympic Parkway proudly has all of these elements in abundance -- making this a popular venue. The famous thick, red clay here makes for the most infamous mud on the Spartan calendar, but that’s not the only reason to attack the course. One of the most daunting yet exciting obstacles in the form of the huge cargo climb is something seasoned racers prepare with regularity. The only question is, will the race directors include it again? This venue was home to the 1966 Olympic Equestrian events, so keep training your legs, you’ll need plenty of horsepower to negotiate the technical trails and the rolling hills. TOP REASONS TO TAKE ON THE COURSE: 1. How often can you point out that you conquered a course that is used for all-terrain vehicles? Unlike most who visit these grounds, you’ll be covering this place on foot! 2. In Atlanta, you can visit the home Martin Luther King grew up in, the church where he would speak at and the areas where he played as a child. 3. Atlanta is a friend of Hollywood. The Walking Dead, Zombieland, Blindside, The Hunger Games and Anchorman 2 have all been filmed here. A local company will even give you a tour of the filming locations. 4. You can also take a tour inside CNN that starts off on the world’s largest free-standing escalator which spans over eight stories high! You’ll then see how the teleprompters and weather screen work inside Studio 7 – the largest studio that CNN has built anywhere in the world. 5. Want to experience what is arguably the world’s best test drive? Visit the Porsche Experience Center and learn what it takes to build and handle a Porsche. Reserve a driving experience here and experience something many only dream of. 6. You may want to dine at the Sun Dial restaurant. Turning slowly at 73 stories, you can have your dinner and take in a 360-degree view of this famous city, after first scaling the tower in a glass elevator.

The United States Customs and Border Protection Honor Guard will serve as the guardians of the colors by displaying and escorting the United States Flag during the performance of the National Anthem to start the event.

BUILD A TEAM: STRENGTH COMES IN NUMBERS.


Callout your friends, co-workers and loved ones to get off the couch and into the mud.

Whether they’re helping you over the wall or chasing you up the mountain, make sure they’re with you at the starting line.

Teams can be any size but must have at least 4 members to be included in the team rankings.

TEAM REGISTRATION


The best way 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. Competitive vs. Morning vs. Afternoon), will be moved to the common team start time in each block when start times and bib numbers are assigned (about 10 days prior to the event). Racers that are registered for Sunday will not be moved to Saturday with a team, or vice versa. 

Team times are NOT determined by the captains start time. Team members will be grouped together within each block (Elite, Competitive, Morning OR Afternoon), based on the preferred time that the majority of team members in that block choose. 

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

Getting all your friends registered and lined up together on race day can be tricky. Avoid any confusion by checking out: 2016: Team Registration and Start Times.
