Spartan Race World Championship Weekend

Spartan Race World Championships will be hosted in North Lake Tahoe at Squaw Valley Resort. Located a short ride from Lake Tahoe, this epic venue was once host to the 1960 Olympic Winter Games. The world’s top athletes will collide on the course with a shared goal: to be the Spartan Race World Champion.
The most anticipated obstacle racing weekend of the year will feature three Spartan Race distances to choose from over two days of racing: The Spartan Beast, the Spartan Ultra Beast and the Spartan Sprint. Which challenge are you ready to accept?
To do well, runners will need to prepare for the thin air as heights reach over 9,000 feet of elevation. Lake Tahoe is one of Northern California’s premier destinations and draws a healthy crowd year-round for its spectacular skiing, water sports, and outdoor activities. With 72 miles of shoreline straddling the California-Nevada stateline, there’s always somewhere new to explore and plenty of terrain for Spartans to roam. The most popular areas to visit include the more nature-oriented North Tahoe, or the party scene of South Tahoe. Or you can do it all — visitors have the potential travel around the lake in under 90 minutes.
Being a World Championship caliber venue, Spartans are in for an adventure filled with traverses, climbs, crawls and perhaps even some swims. Come prepared.
