Colorado Rockies Ultra, Beast, and Sprint Weekend

Experience the immense beauty of Colorado while conquering climbs, crawls, carries and traverses -- just don’t let the scenery distract you from sticking that spear throw. The mountain is calling! The town of Breckenridge sits at an impressive 9,600 feet above sea level, and it only goes up from there. For Spartans, that means an opportunity to test athletes of every caliber -- from the newcomer to the seasoned Pro. From the moment Spartans arrive at the venue to when they reach the highest point on the course, they will be treated to captivating views of the Continental Divide and monstrous peaks at every corner. Current Spartan Race World Champion Jon Albon speaks highly of Breckenridge having flown from Europe specifically to race at the venue. On his blog he writes, “Breckenridge is an amazing place; surrounded by snow topped mountains, the views are spectacular and the activities to do, plentiful. We found great trails right from our hotel and could have spent hours at a time exploring -- if we felt we had the energy.” Given not only the natural beauty of the course, but also the difficulty of increased elevation, this race draws many Spartan Pro Team members, as well as other notable names from the obstacle racing community. Prepare to be star-struck.   TOP 10 REASONS TO TAKE ON THIS COURSE: 1. The Epic Discovery challenge course at Breck provides the perfect warm up for your race.2. This venue has the highest starting point of any Spartan course across the globe.3. Stay within walking distance of the venue. You might even catch a view of the course from your room at Beaver Run Resort.4. When else will you run a course in the sunshine when there’s still snow on the ground?5. Breckenridge is the outdoor enthusiast’s dream. Hike on the extensive trail network or rent a mountain bike and rip up the singletrack.6. Cool off on the water - fly fish, boat, or whitewater raft while visiting Summit County.7. The child-friendly town of Breckenridge and Kids’ Base Camp at Breckenridge Ski Resort make for a perfect family weekend.8. Whether your post-race relaxation includes a massage or a Colorado craft beer, you can find your vice just minutes from the course. 9. Refuel and crush those cravings with delicious dining options up and down Main St.10. Go for gold. Breckenridge shows off its roots as a historic gold mining town with several mine tours.

Hurricane Heat (or HH) is a team-based event designed to push racers to greater personal distances. There are no timing chips and no bibs. There is no individual competition. Each HH is a unique experience directly related to the individuality of the venue, so distances and times vary. You will be challenged, and as a team, you will succeed.

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. Age Group 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, Age Group, 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: 2018: Team Registration and Start Times.

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).
