Spartan Race Weekend at TIEC
October 16, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Coming to TIEC November 23-24, Spartan Race Inc. Obstacle Course Races will feature Ultra, Beast, Sprint, and Kids competition that you won’t want to miss! Register online today!
Ultra: 30 miles; 60 obstacles
The Ultra is the first race of its kind to bring the best of OCR and ultra-endurance sports together. If you’re a traditional ultra-endurance sports fan, you will love the Ultra.
Beast: 13 miles; 30 obstacles
If you’re looking to unleash your inner beast and go to places you never imaged, the Spartan Beast is perfect for you. With 13 mi / 21 km and 30 obstacles between you and the finish line, the Spartan Beast will test everything you’re made of: your strength, your endurance, your resolve. The unpredictable terrain and Spartan Obstacles are masterfully designed to push you deep into your discomfort zone, and well past those self-imposed obstacles you once considered your limits. Beast mode: on.
Sprint: 3 miles; 20 obstacles
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 can push themselves. Delivering 20 obstacles over 3 mi / 5 km, 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.
