About the race
In Palmerton, you’ll scale Pennsylvania’s Blue Mountain, which has tested Spartans year after year and is one of our longest standing venues for a reason. Run in and out of dense forests as you scale the rugged hill designed to test even elites. If you’re strong and determined enough, you’ll be rewarded with amazing views of the Poconos from the top – and then your challenging descent begins. Don’t race alone. Invite your friends and family to cheer you on. This is an amazing course for spectators. They can take the chair lift ride to the top for jaw-dropping views of the course and surrounding area. Put yourself to the test at this “must race” event.
Poconos has a secret that the obstacle racers don’t know about. While this is one of the oldest, most tried-and-true venues on the Spartan OCR circuit, there’s another side of Blue Mountain that those racers have never touched.
Outside of the normal ski area boundary lie miles of pristine singletrack trails too narrow and inaccessible for obstacle building. That means that only Spartan Trail racers get to experience them, and those trails make this race a racer favorite.
