Do you have what it takes to conquer Spartan?
Obstacles stand in your way to see if what you want is worth fighting for. At a Spartan, you will find obstacles designed to test your mental fortitude and physical strength.
Alabama Weekend is the only Spartan in the state and is one of five US Championship Race events. This series will feature Super (mid-distance), Sprint (lower distance), and kid's races. Competitors will make their way through sandy fields, swampy bogs, and forestland. Be prepared to get VERY dirty on your way to becoming a Spartan Champion!
The weekend begins with a pre-race party for participants on Friday evening, March 15 under the tent at the Saraland Chamber of Commerce. Races start at 7:30 AM on both Saturday and Sunday at 1199 Radcliff Road in Saraland. Register today to reserve your spot!
