- 5 miles/8K
- Mud/Obstacle Race
I ran the Spartan Beast at Killington (the 12+ mile distance). It was INSANELY fun and challenging!!
As with all Spartans you get the tech tee, finisher's medal (this one says mountain series!), and awesome free race photos!
There was plenty of aid stations so I didn't bring my full out hydration pack. I had just a carry-able bottle since some stations were cup-less. I don't remember what stations had for food, but I would bring your own just to be safe.
The scenery on top of the mountain is so pretty!! Also a decent amount of the course is through pretty woods!
It is up a mountain so the elevation is pretty intense. Though I think the hardest parts were the start (gotta send you up the steepest hill to intimidate you!) and then of course the Death March, which was straight from the bottom to Killington peak right under the gondolas.
Parking was really easy, they used the ski resort lots. We got there later and had to be shuttled but it was a really quick ride.
Race management put on an EXCELLENT race as always!
There is a swim section, but they make you were life jackets so you can literally just float.
