February 9th – FORT MCDOWELL AZ
One of the more convoluted courses on the Spartan Race calendar, the trails and tracks never cease to twist, turn and keep you guessing as to which direction they will take you next. Nestled neatly in the northeast corner of Phoenix within the county of Maricopa, the reservation is a 40 square mile area, just a fraction of the ancestral territory of the once nomadic Yavapai people.
February 17th – Los Angeles, CA

Florida’s #1 ranked motocross park meets the world’s #1 obstacle course race. Welcome to WW Ranch Motocross Park, a new venue on our 2019 schedule. Conveniently located 20 minutes from downtown Jacksonville and 30 minutes from JAX airport, this race location is perfect for locals and weekend travelers.
