Grit and endurance collide at Spartan’s SoCal Beast and Sprint obstacle race weekend, which will bring thousands of athletes to a brand-new venue, Tejon Ranch on Saturday and Sunday.
Racers will compete in a three- to five-mile “Sprint” race and a 12-plus-mile “Beast” race, conquering obstacles like the spear throw, barbed wire crawl and monkey bars.
Located just north of Santa Clarita, Tejon Ranch offers a landscape of rugged mountains, steep canyons, oak-covered rolling hills and broad valleys — making it the ideal location for athletes to test their endurance. The weekend also features a Spartan Kids race course with age-specific distances and obstacles for kids 4 to 13 years old.
Spartan events focus on sport and athleticism, pushing the bodies and minds of competitors to the limit across miles of unforgiving terrain while they conquer signature obstacles. With more than one million annual participants and more than 200 events across more than 30 countries, Spartan is the world’s largest obstacle race and endurance brand.
The event will run from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Tejon Ranch, 4436 Lebec Road. The cost is $288 for Saturday and $120 for Sunday. For more information, visit www.spartan.com/en/race/detail/4018/overview.
