Tri-State New York Sprint Weekend

Tuxedo Ridge is a ski resort located an hour outside of New York City that provides a wintery escape for ski fanatics during the frozen months, but come Spring, it transforms into an epic barrage of non-stop technical terrain and obstacles for eager Spartans to conquer. The resort, an area known by locals as Tiger Mountain, promises over four hilly miles of incredibly challenging obstacle race adventure. As one of the most popular Spartan Sprint events, you’ll experience a constant wave of inclines and declines, many of Spartan’s signature obstacles, and a giant uphill mud crawl that is sure to put your training to the test. You don’t want to miss out on this Spartan favorite! TOP REASONS TO DO THIS RACE: 1. With previous participation records reaching over 11,000 Spartans during this popular race weekend, you can be confident that you’ll be joining thousands of eager racers as you each seek to earn your medal. The feeling of camaraderie and teamwork is unmatched at this venue. 2. Located just outside of New York City, your pre and post-race dining and entertainment options are endless, making this the perfect venue for a race-cation. 3. Hosted in mid-spring, the potential weather at this Spartan Sprint couldn’t be more ideal. Mild temperatures and breezy days make weather the least of your worries as you prepare to climb, claw, and conquer your way to the finish line. 4. Explore the beauty of Central Park in central Manhattan while you recover from crushing this course.

TRI-STATE NEW YORK 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 fan 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.

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. 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, 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 2015: Team Registration and Start Times.

Dominate the course like the good founders intended. There are no chips, no clock, just a fun run Spartan-style that represents what our company and our athletes are about…getting up when you’re knocked down and finishing what you start. And Burpees, lots of burpees.

Remember: You don’t want to be late. Plan to bring head lamps and glow sticks (required).

Successful finishers earn Hurricane Heat dog tags, a finisher shirt, entry into a closed networking group, and the chance to build relationships that will last well beyond the finish line.
