Portland Sprint

Welcome to Washougal MX Park in Washougal, WA. This is the seventh year in a row Spartan Race has taken over this venue, and it has become a favorite of Spartan Race build teams and racers alike. The terrain and scenery are unmatched. The park has the perfect combination of wooded trails and motocross tracks,which make for an incredible, obstacle-dense spectator area (so tell your fans to bring their cameras) and a new and improved course design to keep things interesting year after year. See you on the course, Spartans. TOP REASONS TO TAKE ON THIS COURSE: 1. The steep motocross inclines and descents -- What Spartan doesn't love a challenge? 2. To put it simply, this is a course you don't want to miss (according to the experts). “[Washougal] was possibly the best overall course I’ve ever raced on," said Pro Racer Brakken Kraker. "It had the perfect mix of steep and gradual climbing, technical descents, fast trails, and demanding obstacles. It balanced out the skill sets necessary to be successful in OCR, putting a wide mix of athletes together in the last mile.” 3. You will love the surrounding area. Eat at one of the cities hundreds of diverse gourmet food carts and visit Cathedral Park, right under the historic St. John’s Bridge. 4. Who doesn't love a good local brew? Sample a local micro-brewery from Occidental Brewing Company, located right on the edge of the park.

PORTLAND 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.


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.

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.
