Breckenridge Beast and Sprint Weekend

Experience the immense beauty of Colorado while conquering climbs, crawls, carries and traverses -- just don’t let the scenery distract you from sticking that spear throw. The mountain is calling! The town of Breckenridge sits at an impressive 9,600 feet above sea level, and it only goes up from there. For Spartans, that means an opportunity to test athletes of every caliber -- from the newcomer to the seasoned Pro. From the moment Spartans arrive at the venue to when they reach the highest point on the course, they will be treated to captivating views of the Continental Divide and monstrous peaks at every corner. Current Spartan Race World Champion Jon Albon speaks highly of Breckenridge having flown from Europe specifically to race at the venue. On his blog he writes, “Breckenridge is an amazing place; surrounded by snow topped mountains, the views are spectacular and the activities to do, plentiful. We found great trails right from our hotel and could have spent hours at a time exploring -- if we felt we had the energy.” Given not only the natural beauty of the course, but also the difficulty of increased elevation, this race draws many Spartan Pro Team members, as well as other notable names from the obstacle racing community. Prepare to be star-struck. TOP REASONS TO TAKE ON THIS COURSE: 1. This venue has the highest starting point of any Spartan course across the globe. 2. Breckenridge Brewery is right down the street from the venue and offers up some micro brews that will satisfy your tastebuds. 3. How often can you run a course where there’s snow on the ground, yet it’s still warm enough to enjoy? 4. There’s plenty of space to stay within walking distance of the venue. Stay at the Beaver Run Resort and you might be lucky enough to have a view of the course from your room. 5. Breckenridge in the summer is a outdoor-pursuits dream destination due to the number of nearby activities.. Hiking, fly-fishing, mountain biking, boating and whitewater rafting are all popular choices. 6. Test your knowledge of the movie “Forrest Gump” by visiting the famous Bubba Gump restaurant close to the race venue. 7. Breckenridge is extremely child-friendly with many parks and camps for the kids to enjoy. So make this a long weekend with the family. While you complete another step towards your Trifecta, they can play at one of the many facilities in the area. 8. If you’d like to relax after the race, there’s a broad scope of shopping and nightlife in Breckenridge. The added bonus of the beautiful scenery is always welcome, too!

BUILD A TEAM: STRENGTH COMES IN NUMBERS.


Call out 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.
