Pennsylvania Sprint #2

Blue Mountain Ski Area is nestled within the picturesque Little Gap Valley amidst the breathtaking backdrop of the neighboring Pocono Mountains. But don’t let the beautiful views and trails fool you, this course is punishing! The mountainous terrain makes use of steep slopes and takes you in and out of the surrounding forest, it has long climbs and quick descents. Here you get a taste of what it’s like to climb mountains and the sense of accomplishment that overcomes you as you reach the top. Couple the tremendous climbs with the obstacles, and even the fittest Spartan will feel challenged. Two years in a row the Elite Men’s and Women’s Spartan Race competition has been the featured race for Reebok Spartan Race on NBC Sports. The Blue Mountain venue offers a compelling preview of how the World Championship might play out come the end of the season. During the 2015 Season, this venue also played host to the second Spartan Combine, an event designed to bring a new element to the sport of obstacle racing. Simply put, when you sign up for Pennsylvania, there’s a lot this venue has to offer. TOP REASONS TO TAKE ON THIS COURSE: 1. Blue Mountain has a long history that brings racers an understanding of perseverance. 2. Epic views from the top. [And a colossal feeling of accomplishment from the bottom]. 3. Spectators are treated to jaw dropping course views with chair lift rides from the bottom to the top. 4. Dine at the Slopeside Pub and Grill and replenish all the calories you depleted from conquering the course and the mountain!
