Monterey Spartan Event Weekend
The Spartan Race is a series of obstacle course races designed to test endurance, strength, and agility. Participants can choose from different race types, including Sprint, Super, and Beast, each with varying levels of difficulty and distance. The races feature obstacles like walls, ropes, mud pits, and natural terrains like hills and streams. The events are open to all fitness levels, from beginners to elite athletes. The Spartan Race was created by Joe De Sena, a former Wall Street trader, to inspire people to push themselves to their limits and live more active, fulfilling lives.
Beautiful Toro Park features the ideal coastal California weather and is just six miles from downtown Salinas. It's teeming with picturesque woods and rolling golden hills. A true fan favorite, this course boasts all the demanding features that you've come to know from Spartan; brutal climbs, open field sprints, and our famous punishing obstacles, all ready to set your muscles ablaze.
