Six Weeks to Sparta - Big Bear 2019.png

Big Bear is known as one of the most difficult Spartan Race locations. With its stunning beauty also comes elevation, tough climbs and technical descents. We’ve been there (multiple times!) and know the ins and outs of this race and this course. With focused attention on training, nutrition and preparedness - you can crush this course. The Six Weeks to Sparta BIG BEAR Challenge is designed specifically to help you get there!
