Alabama Super Presented by Mobile Sports Authority

Welcome to Saraland. Spartans, prepare to enter the swampy South. This 90 acre venue has a dynamic landscape riddled with challenging terrain the Spartan course designers are sure to use to slow you down. From sandy highlands to swampy bogs, prairie land to forest, this course has a little bit of everything. Be prepared to get mucky and dirty as Spartan transforms this southern location into the ultimate obstacle course race. TOP REASONS TO TAKE ON THIS COURSE: 1. Swamps, mud, and muck. This course will be one of the dirtiest, at the end you’ll look like a cross between a sci-fi zombie and a swamp creature. 2. Enjoy some natural serenity off the course at Bellingrath Gardens, located on the Isle aux Oies River, with a conservatory, nature walk, water features, and several themed gardens. 3. Honor our country’s Armed Forces with a visit to our nation’s sixth naval ship of the U.S. Navy, the USS Alabama Battleship. 4. Locals have been raving to us about how Baumhowers, located at The Wharf in Orange Beach, is spears down the best spot for wings. 5. Want to get your fill of the freshest of seafood, how can you not when so close to the coast? Rest assured there are more than enough options to feast until your heart’s content. The difficult part will be deciding where to dine. 6. Take on an adventure through the swamps with a boat tour that’ll have you shaking in your boots. Whatever you do, don’t try to take a selfie with the crocodiles. Just don’t.

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. 

SPECTATORS: Bring your friends and family. (Your biggest fans)


Bring your friends and family to the race to watch you conquer obstacles, dominate the finish line and receive your medal!

Racers, your fans will motivate you over the wall and past the finish line. You wouldn’t believe how far a cheering section will go when you’re exhausted. Your fans will also enjoy music, raffles, entertainment, and festival challenges. 

Most importantly, fans will receive a front row seat to watch racers from a safe, comfortable, and relatively mud-less (no promises) Spartan Race festival ground area! And, when it’s over, they receive muddy hugs from thrilled Spartan athletes. After all, what’s a sport without fans?

Cost: $20 Online until Friday prior to the Event. $25 on site (Cash Only).

As a Spartan Race spectator, you’ll get: $5 Spartan bucks redeemable at the merchandise tent, access to view multiple key obstacles on the course, finish line viewing, the vendor tents, and hot food for sale on the grounds!
