If nothing else, Spartan Race is always making news. Things change and they change quickly. In case you ‘ve been sleeping through all of the recent announcements, let me catch you up.
Annual Race Pass
New year. New type of season pass. The price is $550 (if you have an existing pass you can take $100 off that price). In addition to the potential for saving money when participating in multiple races, the pass comes with other new perks this year such as free bag checks, travel discounts, etc. As always, there are stipulations so read the rules.
2015 Spartan World Championship leaves Vermont
In a somewhat surprising move, Spartan has forsaken its holy land by moving the 2015 World Championship to Lake Tahoe in early October. There will still be a Vermont Beast for those who have left parts of their soul in Killington and want to retrieve it. Another twist to the 2015 Spartan World Championship is that entry to the elite race is limited to those who have a Spartan “coin” to cash. For more info on the new venue, read this.
March 6-9, 2015, Spartan racers will be boarding a cruise ship in Miami and set sail for the Bahamas. Prize money, parties, speakers, and a special Spartan Sprint await. Visit thespartancruise.com to learn more and sign up.
