Palmerton Spartan Trail 10K
Palmerton has a secret that the obstacle racers don't know about. While this is one of the oldest, most tried-and-true venues on the Spartan OCR circuit, there's another side of Blue Mountain that those racers have never touched. Outside of the normal ski area boundary lie miles of pristine singletrack trails too narrow and inaccessible for obstacle building. That means that only Spartan Trail racers get to experience them, and those trails make this race a racer favorite. But you won't get off that easy, because some of Palmerton's legendary hills are still waiting!
This weekend also features Spartan Obstacle Course Races.
