Spartan Beast Race
The Spartan Race is taking over Killington for the weekend! Competitors of all ages will test their endurance in the Beast Race and Spartan Kids Race. Step up and get out of your comfort zone, many will arrive, but few will leave!
This timed, 13+ mile course will take racers around the mountain where they will face military-style obstacles along the way, including a slippery incline wall, cargo net climb, barbed wire crawl, water obstacles, mud crawl, spear throw, fire jump and gladiator pit.
September 21-22, 2013
The Spartan Beast obstacle course race includes the following:
- 13+ mile battlefield of insane mud running
- 15+ obstacles to test your physical strength and mental resolve
- 1-2 water crossings or obstacles on the course that racers must navigate. Athletes that cannot swim will be given personal flotation devices (PFDs).
This mixed terrain run of an endurance race will have many trials to push you to your full potential. The fastest time should be around 180 minutes. Those who can climb well will be rewarded.
If you are unsure as to if you can do the full race we are allowinga 'dignified exit' if needed at mile 3. This will also serve as the ultimate test of resolve for those who plan on doing the full event. Each racer will have to confront choice between luxury and relaxation or facing 9 more miles of The Beast. You are welcome to plan on only doing 3 mile section of course but price remains the same and you will not receive official time or medal.
Race Start Times
Starting at 8am, waves of 200 athletes will be released every 15 minutes across 5 groups (Elite, Confirmed, Morning, Afternoon, Late Afternoon). YOUR exact start time in the group you registered for will be posted on the Spartan Race website a couple of days prior to the event.
