2 Person Sunday Relay: What’s more fun than taking on a Super Spartan in SoCal alone?  Doing it with a buddy in a two person team relay!  Socal Super Spartan Sunday is offering a brand NEW option for anyone who wants a new twist on our classic course.  We are offering a two-person team relay registration!  Each person will take on half the course (4+ miles filled with obstacles) earning each member a finisher medal and all the Spartan glory of race day! The Relay heats start at 9:30 and are not eligible for our competitive heat BUT our fastest relay team on the day will get a prize! Prices open at $120 for both people (only $60 each!)

Any Saturday finisher who dares think they can accomplish this course twice can come back and run again on Sunday for only  $45.

Spectators: Spectator tickets are $15 and sold onsite (please bring cash, limited Credit Card services are available). 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 $15 you'll ever spend and we promise the next ticket you will want to buy will be a race entry!

Race Director's NotesMessage from Brian

Vail Lake is a beautiful lake nestled inside of the hills of Temecula.  Our course for this year features two distinct 4-mile loops.  Both loops include some big hill climbs with single and double track running.  The river that was overflowing last year is bone dry this year and will give us the opportunity to play in the rocky river bead.  Because of the mountains and limited access, we'll have obstacles bunched up on this course.  That means you'll have some sections where you'll be focused on running the trails, and others where the obstacles will come at you one after another.
