Arizona Spartan Trail
The Spartan Trail Races are a series of off-road running events that take place around the world. The event was created by the same company that started the popular Spartan Race series of obstacle course races.
Just outside of Phoenix, Fort McDowell Rodeo Grounds is home to classic desert trail running. Racers will weave through tall saguaro cactus and epic rock formations on sandy, rolling trails. Though there won’t be huge climbs, the winding trails are rhythm breakers, so technical runners will be rewarded. Runners should also watch for wildlife — snakes, lizards, and even the wild javelina inhabit this desert, so watch your step!
