Six Weeks to Sparta BEASTMASTER Challenge Banner.png

The Spartan Beast is one of the more challenging races that Spartan offers. It’s a 13 mile course that can be long, brutal and tough. Sure, you may be able to wing it to a certain degree with shorter distances (although we don’t recommend ever winging it, but it can be done). Beasts, on the other hand, should most definitely be taken seriously when it comes to training and preparation. Especially if the race involves steep hills, elevation, or changing weather conditions.

Now that we’ve scared you, here’s the good news: we’ve got your back!

Enter the Six Weeks to Sparta BEASTMASTER Challenge!

The BEASTMASTER Challenge is a six-week dedicated training program designed to give you the tools, training and confidence needed to crush a Spartan Beast. With several Spartan Beasts coming up in Southern California during the remaining months of the year, the timing couldn’t be better to join the BEASTMASTER Challenge and get the edge you need to go from couch to crushing the course!
