Spartan Race 2017
September 16, 2017 @ 8:00 am - September 17, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
Sat Sep 16 – Sun Sep 17
Home of the 2014 Spartan World Championship, this course is brutal.
Welcome to the Birthplace of the Spartan Beast.
The Killington, VT Spartan Race has hosted three Spartan World Championship events. If you think you’re among the baddest of the east, we welcome you to come play in what is known as “Joe’s backyard.” This is where Spartan Race was born; and that means anything goes. You can expect steep slopes, off-trail descents, massive climbs, and chilly swims. The wonderful ski-town of Killington welcomes Spartans with open arms. Come see where it all began and witness the menace that gave Spartan Race its roots. Be forewarned though: this course has been known to destroy those not prepared in their mind, body, legs and soul.
This iconic race has a lot of history. Aside from being the birthplace of the Beast, it’s where Spartan Race was being held when NBC first showed interest in highlighting the sport at the 2013 World Championship. In 2014, NBC returned to film the ruthless battle that led to the crowning of the first Spartan Race World Champion from Europe, Jon Albon.
If you want to experience one of the most rewarding and challenging courses in the world, come out to the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont. While the climbs will have your calves and quads begging for a massage, the cascading silhouettes of mountains and the unpredictable weather will have you shouting AROO! as you battle for glory from the mountain tops.
Competitors can choose to race in the Ultra Beast Race: 26+ miles, the Beast Race: 12+ miles or the 3.5+ mile sprint. Additionally, young Spartans are invited to race the Spartan Kids Races.
Rather watch? We’ve got you covered. Spectator locations will be set up the K-1 deck, the Roaring Brook Umbrella Bars, the Snowshed area and the Snowshed Pond.
