Palmerton 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.
In Palmerton, you’ll scale Pennsylvania’s Blue Mountain, which has tested Spartans year after year and is one of their longest standing venues for a reason. Run in and out of dense forests as you scale the rugged hill designed to test even elites. If you’re strong and determined enough, you’ll be rewarded with amazing views of the Poconos from the top – and then your challenging descent begins. Don’t race alone. Invite your friends and family to cheer you on. This is an amazing course for spectators. They can take the chair lift ride to the top for jaw-dropping views of the course and surrounding area. Put yourself to the test at this “must race” event.

Beginner Runner Training Plans

In 3 workouts of 30 minutes or less per week, None to Run will take you from ground zero to running comfortably for 25 minutes straight.
None to Run is different from most beginner plans:
