Big Bear, California has always been a haven of outdoor activity, scenic views and rugged trails that beckon to the athletically inclined. Between the lush landscapes, dynamic mountain peaks and waterways, it’s not hard to see why Big Bear is an ideal destination for those who love to push physical limits in the great outdoors. When it comes to physical skill, nothing tests athleticism more than a Spartan race and Big Bear is no exception to the competitive rule. Athletes looking to participate in a race that pushes and exceeds all expectations will want to be sure to sign up for the Spartan Race at Big Bear Summit in May of 2019.
May 18th and 19th mark the athletic event of the season. Participants will be asked to get out on a demanding course and prove just what they’re made of. Referred to as the Spartan Beast, this course takes participants over 13-miles and up, around and through nearly 30-obstacles before reaching the finish line. Hilly terrain and challenging designs make this one of the most anticipated athletic activities of the year. Sign up for the men, women or by-age category for a chance to set new records and reach new physical heights. Registration for elite men and women’s categories start at $194.99 with options to register for an afternoon course attempt starting at $154.99.
This two-day event also includes a Spartan sprint which is open to male and female athletes of all abilities. Participants in the sprint will travel over 3-miles and make their way through 20 obstacles on what many consider the ultimate training ground for future Spartan Beast runs. The race begins at 880 Summit Boulevard with Elite racer registration beginning at $154.99 and afternoon runs starting at $109.99.
The future generation of Spartan racers starts with kids and this event hosts plenty of opportunities for young athletes to test their skills. Races span anywhere from .5-miles to 2-miles in distance with options to participate in obstacle specialist trainings once the competition comes to a close. Kids can choose to participate in a single race or combine them for a true Spartan experience!
