The Spartan Open House is a chance for newbies and expert Spartans alike to hang out pre-race, practice on obstacles, join a guided obstacle tour with an SGX certified coach, get early access to merchandise, meet new Spartans while soaking up the music and pre-race vibe in festival, and more.
Spartan Open House: FREE, 4pm-6pm Friday, March 23rd, 2018 at Diablo Grande.
Spartan staff and SGX Coaches will be on hand to answer all questions about Spartan and what to expect on race day, as well as provide expert tips on how to crush Spartan obstacles like a pro. Anyone 14 years and up will have time to practice on the obstacles.
People of all ages are welcome. It's free. Bring friends, family, and strangers and encourage them to sign up for the race if they haven't!
Callout your friends, co-workers and loved ones to get off the couch and into the mud.
Whether they’re helping you over the wall or chasing you up the mountain, make sure they’re with you at the starting line.
Teams can be any size but must have at least 4 members to be included in the team rankings.
The best way to ensure that you are starting at the exact same start time as your friends is to create a Team during registration (or have your friends Join your team!).
Any racers that are registered as part of a team, on the SAME DAY in the SAME TIME BLOCK (Elite vs. Age Group vs. Morning vs. Afternoon), will be moved to the common team start time in each block when start times and bib numbers are assigned (about 10 days prior to the event). Racers that are registered for Sunday will not be moved to Saturday with a team, or vice versa.
Team times are NOT determined by the captains start time. Team members will be grouped together within each block (Elite, Age Group, Morning OR Afternoon), based on the preferred time that the majority of team members in that block choose.
Racers that are registered for Elite or Morning start times will NOT be grouped with racers in the Afternoon start times or vice versa.
Getting all your friends registered and lined up together on race day can be tricky. Avoid any confusion by checking out: 2018: Team Registration and Start Times.
Bring your friends and family to the race to watch you conquer obstacles, dominate the finish line and receive your medal!
Racers, your fans will motivate you over the wall and past the finish line. You wouldn’t believe how far a cheering section will go when you’re exhausted. Your fans will also enjoy music, raffles, entertainment, and festival challenges.
Most importantly, fans will receive a front row seat to watch racers from a safe, comfortable, and relatively mud-less (no promises) Spartan Race festival ground area! And, when it’s over, they receive muddy hugs from thrilled Spartan athletes. After all, what’s a sport without fans?
Cost: $20 Online until Friday prior to the Event. $25 on site (Cash Only).
As a Spartan Race spectator, you’ll get: $5 Spartan bucks redeemable at the merchandise tent, a festival map, access to view multiple key obstacles on the course, finish line viewing, the vendor tents, and hot food for sale on the grounds!
