Race Day InformationWhat You Need To Know

When: May 5th - Cinco De Mayo - and 6th* 2012

Distance: Military Sprint distance will be approximately 4 miles give or take a few extra special forces surprises!

Obstacles:This Military Sprint will be similar to the Spartan Sprint with additional obstacles designed by the 4th Infantry and Specials Forces units.  A big difference is this race has its own rules and rankings which is why it will also have VERY unique Military medals and a different T-shirt.  Spartan Annual Pass holders are not eligible for the Military Series events.

Start Times: Heats start at 8am with up to 250 racers per heat and continuing every 30 minutes throughout the day. Enter the 8am “Elite” heat if you want to be as competitive as possible and race against the best.

Aid Stations: None… hydrate before and/or carry your own water on the course. Or plan on drinking nasty retention pond water while you are sloshing through it (not recommended).

Festival Area: Cinco De Mayo themed Festival Party.

All Racers Receive:

  • - Finishers Medal
    - T-Shirt
    - Free Beer ticket for anyone 21 and over
    - Bragging Rights

Please note that pets, coolers, or grills are not allowed within the main event area. Spectators are welcome (subject to same parking fee).

Spectators: Spectator tickets are $15 onsite (please bring cash, limited Credit Card services are available) OR you can register online for only $10. As a Spartan Race spectator, you get $5 Spartan bucks redeemable at the merchandise tent, a festival map, and rad access to some obstacles on the course, the epic Gladiator pit and finish line, and the vendor tents! So enjoy the live music and watching your friends and loved ones slip and slide through the Spartan course in the safety and comfort (and relative mudlessness) of the Spartan Race festival ground areas! Raffles, entertainment, free muddy hugs from Spartan athletes, and all the other festival perks make this the best money you'll ever spend and we promise the next ticket you will want to buy will be a race entry!
