Michigan 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.
The Spartan Race course in Grand Rapids is just less than an hour from the shore of Lake Michigan, and two hours from Detroit and Chicago. Millennium Park is one of the nation’s largest urban parks with no shortage of rolling terrain, wildlife and mileage on the river. After your race, hit the city known for its beautiful scenery and craft beers.
