Spartan Sprint Colorado

Welcome to Fort Carson army base. The obstacles on this course were created by the 4th infantry in addition to Spartan obstacles giving any spartan the ultimate bragging rights of finishing this course. This is an experience that you’ll surely appreciate long after the race.

Throughout the course, tough obstacles will test your abilities, and at the end, you’ll do burpees to earn your finisher medal.

Course Description

Spartan Sprint is the shortest, fastest Spartan Race that’s a can-do for athletes of all fitness levels. While Sprints can be considered the only “beginner-friendly” Spartan event, they absolutely offer challenges for all athletes with obstacles like cargo nets, rope climb, walls of all shapes & sizes, mud, barbed wire, and of course, the fire jump at the end!

Distance

3-5 mile course with 20+ obstacles
Experienced athletes should complete the course in about an hour, while first-timers may be closer to two hours from start to finish line.

Difficulty

Sprints (and Stadium Sprints) are the shortest and easiest of Spartan events, they are still a considerable challenge for all athletes

What to Wear:

Performance gear that’s sweat-wicking and doesn’t hold water, avoid cotton or any materials that will soak with water and get heavy or loose.

Your shoes should have some decent of tread to grip the terrain, especially in dirt and mud. Don’t fall into the trap of wearing old, worn-out shoes with no grip at all, you need traction in all outdoor conditions so you don’t slip and fall or get stuck. We recommend a good trail shoe with aggressive tread. Metal cleats are not allowed at all, and (soccer, basketball, football) cleats in general are not recommended, as the cleats are too hard and stiff to give you traction on obstacles.

Need more info on gear? Check out Mud + Adventure’s Gear Section

Showers & Changing Area

Showers and changing areas are available. Showers are an outdoor area with multiple hoses for you to rinse off, 99% of the time with cold water. Changing areas are male and female tents.
