It's that time of the year to set challenges! The Spartan Race experience is an awesome outdoor obstacle course that is meant to push your mental and physical limits. Each race is a bonding experience and redefines teamwork. Every race builds comradeship since everyone has a common goal. There are no
egos, just selflessness to help others succeed.
There are 3 common levels of Spartan Races:
Introductory Course (Beginner Level)
3+ miles and 20+ obstacles
Seasoned Athlete Course
8+ miles and 25+ obstacles
Like it says, Beast Mode
12+ miles and 30+ obstacles
Spartan Trifecta (Complete all 3 courses within the calendar year)
