Race Information

Welcome to the Cliff's Insane Terrain Park. While the surrounding area is practically flat, Spartan Race has figured out how to extract every bit of elevation from the venue. Racers will weave through the beautiful wooded trails and creek beds and up and down the numerous short, technical hills that would make just about any ATV or 4X4 rider’s adrenaline spike. With free rein of the park, Spartan Race will be bringing some tough, new challenges over the 8+ mile course. This course is located just over an hour outside Chicago in Marseille, IL.

This epic course filled with fast double-track, short steep hills, and gnarly technical off-trail runs, down ravines and rivers.  If it’s wet you can kiss any chance of footing goodbye, as it is the closest thing to running on ice you’ll find during this time of the year.  The terrain is relentless so plan your footwear accordingly.

This event will take place over Saturday and Sunday. Participants can choose between the Super and Sprint courses on both days.


Course Information

The Reebok Spartan Super: This is the middle distance course. With a longer distance than the Sprint and more obstacles, the Super will test your endurance, perseverance and grit. The 8+ Mile Super packs more than 25 Signature Spartan Obstacles through tougher and more rugged terrain. The Super is the test en route to your Spartan TRIFECTA.

The Reebok Spartan Sprint: This is the shortest distance. It is perfect for athletes of all levels; from Spartan first timers to seasoned racers. The 3+ Mile Sprint may be our shortest distance but it packs more than 20 Signature Spartan Obstacles including mud, fire, walls and barbed wire. If you think you can’t do it, you’re wrong. Get to the starting line and show yourself what you are capable of.
