Spartan comes to Snowmass for the first time ever in August 2019. Spartan Snowmass features a series of obstacle course races (OCR) testing endurance and abilities of competitors of all ages and skill levels. Participants can choose to compete in one of three distances – 30-mile Ultra, 13-mile Beast, 3-mile Sprint and a kid’s race for youth ages 4-13. The event is based in Snowmass Base Village at the Spartan Base Camp, while obstacles run on Snowmass Ski Area. Friday night features a welcome party for participants and non-participants to enjoy and learn about the races.
