Asheville Super and Sprint Weekend

DON’T MISS THIS “MUST RACE” EVENT. This U.S. Championship Series Race is one of our premier race events of the entire year. It’s time to truly put yourself and your training to the ultimate test. The U.S. Championship Series is here. There are two HUGE reasons to race Asheville: First, it’s an awesome challenge. As part of the U.S. Championship Series, the Asheville course has been designed to test our elite Spartans. Over the past two years, the course has earned its place alongside Killington and Wintergreen as Spartan’s most brutal courses. Trust us… Asheville will test your physical and mental limits. Second, it’s a stunningly beautiful course. You’ll chase glory in the shadow of a massive quarry, and earn your rewards of beautiful vistas overlooking stunning spruce-fir forests. You’ll enjoy soft grass and cool forest, but you’ll also face lots of granite, grit, dirt and mud. At Asheville, you will EARN your finisher’s medal. You’ll face rocky, steep slopes and obstacles designed to test the elites. This event was designed to challenge the elites for the U.S. Championship Series and will be televised on NBC Sports. The series leads to our ultimate obstacle race of the entire year – the World Championship at Lake Tahoe. Don’t race alone. Invite your friends and family to cheer you on – and enjoy the area together. This is a fun area for spectators and racers alike. You can visit the famous Blue Ridge Mountains (home of amazing sunsets), go zip-lining, take a balloon ride, explore caves, check out the outstanding local dining, or grab a beer at one of Asheville’s many microbreweries. Can you conquer this challenging course? Sign up now for this “MUST RACE” event. Race Asheville – and race the same U.S. Championship Series courses as the elites.

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 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: 2017: 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.
