Great Stirrup Cay Island, Bahamas
Starting at 10:00am, waves of 200+ racers will be released every 15 minutes. You will receive an email approximately one week before the race with your race times. Make a note of this time as it will tell you what heat you are running in on race day. Your exact start time will be posted under the race Race Day tab a few days prior to the event’s date.
You will be tendered via boat to the private island Great Stirrup Cay where the first ever obstacle course race on a tropical island will be waiting for you!
All racers, spectators, and volunteers must sign a waiver (above) and show a valid photo ID upon arrival. Be sure to bring a copy of your signed waiver and hand it to one of our awesome volunteers in the registration tent. We try to have copies of waivers available, but save yourself some time, print it here and bring it with you on race day. We cannot release bibs without a signed waiver for each participant.
Bib numbers are available the week of the race & will be posted under the Race Day tab a few days prior to the events date. On race day, make sure you know your bib number as this will be used to locate your bib packet - this will include your headband, bib, timing chip and most importantly, FREE drink ticket!
Along with your ID, waiver, and knowing your bib # you’ll be all set to participate in an unprecedented event so be sure to stretch!
Try and leave as much stuff as you can on the boat- but for the stuff you can’t leave behind, or that you don’t want covered in mud and water, we will have a secure place to check your gear. You will receive a wrist ban to ear that matches the band we put on your bag so make sure you keep that safe.
We said “adventure” right? Well folks let’s get adventurous! There’s no dress code, per se but you’ll be running in mud, sand and water, climbing hills and mountains, crawling under barbed wire and jumping fire. So choose wisely my friends, and we’re on an tropical so bring some sun block!
For starters, you will be getting your badge of honor, the one-of-a-kind, bragging rights of your badass custom Spartan Cruise finisher's medal. You'll also get a quality race t-shirt (yes, more bragging rights) and shortly after the event, you'll get your own professional photo and video to prove your badassness (see Photos section for more on that).
Event day photos will be posted on the event page 5-7 days after the event, FREE OF CHARGE! You don’t have to stay up all night checking the site for this – we’ll email you when your photos are ready!
