Monterey Spartan Event Weekend
Call out your friends, co-workers and loved ones to get off the couch and into the mud. Whether they help you over the wall or chase you up the mountain, make sure they’re with you at the starting line.
Located only six miles from downtown Salinas near the town of Monterey, the park is a vast, sprawling venue covering almost 5,000 acres. With punishing hills, fields and prairies as well as many picturesque wooded areas, it’s easy to understand why this venue is a favorite amongst Spartans. The course covers a variety of trail routes, and the magnificent views from on top of the dusty peaks are worthy of a quick rest to appreciate the stunning sight of the outlying Northern California. Be sure to look out for the local wildlife as the park is teeming with critters watching you sprint to the next hill!
This weekend also features Spartan Trail Races.
