Seattle Beast and Sprint Weekend

Welcome to Seattle, the heart of the Pacific Northwest. The Pacific Northwest offers a little of everything in terms of terrain: mountainous trails, rolling hills, creeks, rocky byways and trees in every direction. With so many towering trees and natural scenery as far as your eyes can see, you won’t even know you’re so close to Seattle at this venue. TOP REASONS TO TAKE ON THIS COURSE: 1. You get the experience of being outside of the city, without being too far from civilization. Explore Seattle on Sunday before heading out to SeaTac airport. 2. There is no better place to catch some “nature therapy.” You’ll see why Seattle is called the Emerald City. Breathe in the fresh air and feel invigorated by the trees and lush green vegetation in all directions. With so many hiking trails in the area, stop any local and they’ll be able to give you more options than you can handle in terms of hikes, nearby lakes, or other outdoor activities. 3. Check out Pike Place Market. This iconic farmers market attracts locals and tourists from all over. With fresh local produce and flowers, local artists, and little shops on every corner you’ll never run out of things to see and do. A short walk to the waterfront directly in front of the market is a good place to take a break and snack on some goodies from the market. 4. The Space Needle is also nearby. Rising 605 feet into the air, it is a view you won’t want to miss. Buy tickets for the observation deck, or make reservations for the SkyCity restaurant that slowly rotates at the top. While you’re there, stop by the Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit at the Seattle Center near the base of the Space Needle. 5. If you aren’t a coffee aficionado when you arrive, you will be when you leave. Visit the original Starbucks located on a cobblestone street on the outskirts of Pike Place Market. Or try one of the many local coffee stands or cafes throughout the area.

SEATTLE BEAST

SEATTLE BEAST

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.

SEATTLE SPRINT

SEATTLE SPRINT

The Sprint may be our shortest distance race, but it’s still a favorite amongst 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.

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)
