San Luis Obispo Spartan Trail
The Spartan Trail Races are a series of off-road running events that take place around the world. Participants of all levels are invited to tackle a range of distances and terrains, from 10K to ultra-marathon distances, with obstacles such as steep inclines, rocky paths, and mud pits. These races offer a unique challenge that requires endurance, strength, and mental fortitude. With events taking place in some of the world's most stunning locations, the Spartan Trail Races offer runners the chance to push their limits while experiencing nature's beauty. The event is by the same company that started the popular Spartan Race series of obstacle course races.
Santa Margarita Ranch is full of classic Central Coast scenery -- rolling grassy hills, wide open cow pastures, and oak-line arroyos winding throughout the venue. It might not appear mountainous and technical at first glance, but the hills here are deceptively steep and long, your footing will often be unsure, and whatever rhythm you find is sure to be broken by the constantly changing terrain. Stick around after the race to sample some of the local wine made from grapes grown right on the course!
