San Francisco Super

According to Miwok and Ohlone mythology, Mount Diablo is the place where the world began. It’s happening again, and you’re invited. Under the warm glow of the California sun, Spartans will come together to brave heat and hills on an expansive range of wooded trails. On a low, ancient savannah rich with legend, thousands of Spartans will join in celebration, vie for glory, and enjoy the renewal that only comes after a day of relentless drive. That, or they will bow at the feet of the unforgiving, blood-red Mount Diablo. Scenic Diablo Grande is a 30,000-acre ranch, resort, and nature park in Diablo Grande, CA. Just 30 minutes from Modesto, this wide-open space lets Spartans make a complete escape from the madness of modern life—without dropping them in the remotest wilderness. After the race, or between heats, Spartans can easily visit the city for a much-needed rest and recharge. One hour west by car, beautiful San Francisco offers Spartans more healthy and delicious ways to dine than we can list here. TOP 5 REASONS TO GRAB DIABLO GRANDE BY THE HORNS: 1. In addition to a formidable Reebok Spartan Super course, Diablo Grande is home to 520 miles of hiking and biking trails. You’ll want to be there at sunset to see Mount Diablo’s bright red glow. 2. Take a tour of the largest winery and wine manufacturing company in the world: E.&J. Gallo Winery. 3. No matter your take on the Spartan Diet—there is a delicious meal option for you at Bauer’s 66 ½. (Bring in local wine for an $8 uncorking fee.) 4. Just two hours away by car, the massive Golden Gate Bridge is just waiting for a group of daring Spartans to reinterpret the 30-Day Lunge challenge... 5. Recharge and refuel at one of Modesto’s endless dining options: from sushi to high-class Italian to divine falafels to top-quality Thai.
