Carolina Beast and Sprint Weekend

Welcome to Carolina Adventure World: the premier dirt bike and ATV playground of South Carolina since opening its doors in 2007. Being the Southeast’s largest ATV, UTV, and dirt bike riding park, Spartans will have over 100 miles of trails and tracks to roam. Trifecta-seeking Spartans will love this off-road endeavor, as participants will be faced with gritty, technical terrain and steep, rolling hills. Get ready for a challenge. TOP REASONS TO TAKE ON THIS COURSE: 1. This Spartan Beast and Sprint provides Southern Spartan’s the opportunity to tackle a course filled with elevation change without having to travel a long distance to take on technical terrain. 2. Committing to this race will keep you motivated to train and stay in shape. Get motivation to avoid temptation -- don’t throw your Spartan lifestyle of healthy eating and consistent training to the wind over the holiday season. 3. Looking for an extra challenge? Or perhaps not quite ready to take on a Spartan Beast? No worries! We’ll be hosting a Sprint length race this weekend as well, so you can sign up to take on both, or select the distance of your choosing. 4. An adventurous place to visit either before or after your race is Lake Wateree State Park. It offers top-notch fishing, boating, and camping areas. There are also walking and biking trails, just in case you still have some energy left after the race (although we doubt that!)

If you’re looking to unleash your inner beast and go to places you never imaged, the Spartan Beast is perfect for you. With 12-14 miles and 30-35 obstacles between you and the finish line, the Spartan Beast will test everything you’re made of: your strength, your endurance, your resolve. The unpredictable terrain and Spartan Obstacles are masterfully designed to push you deep into your discomfort zone, and well past those self-imposed obstacles you once considered your limits. Beast mode: on.

CAROLINA SPRINT

CAROLINA SPRINT

The Sprint may be our shortest distance race, but it’s still a favorite among both new and returning racers. It’s the perfect distance for those looking to start their Spartan journey. The Sprint also allows returning racers a manageable distance to see how far they can push themselves. Delivering 20-23 obstacles over 3-5 miles, you'll never run the same race twice. Once you complete the sprint you are 1/3 on your Spartan TRIFECTA: The ultimate Spartan achievement.

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.   

For more detailed team information please see: 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!
