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.
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.
For more detailed team information please see: 2016: Team Registration and Start Times.
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!
For detailed spectator information, please see: The Spartan Race Spectator Guide.
Saturday Night @ 5:00pm sharp.
Show up early to run with the Spartan Staff in a whole new way!
Typically lasting 3-4 hours, the Hurricane Heat is a unique event, traversing on and off the Spartan Race Course. Hurricane Heat Participants will be assigned a team upon arrival and will be expected to work together to complete any and all challenges set before them, as a team. You can't finish alone.
Dominate the course like the good founders intended. There are no chips, no clock, just a fun run Spartan-style that represents what our company and our athletes are about…getting up when you’re knocked down and finishing what you start. And Burpees, lots of burpees.
Remember: You don’t want to be late. Plan to bring head lamps and glow sticks (required).
Successful finishers earn Hurricane Heat dog tags, a finisher shirt, entry into a closed networking group, and the chance to build relationships that will last well beyond the finish line.
