 CHICAGO BEAST AND SPRINT WEEKEND 

October 5th, 2019

The Badlands Off Road Park is 800 acres of beautiful, badass trails. This venue usually functions as an off-road vehicle park but will transform into a Spartan obstacle course. Spartans will traverse sand dunes, rocky paths, heavily wooded trails, and creeks to prove that you don’t need an ATV or dirt bike to go off-roading. There will be plenty of miles for the Beast and Sprint course here.

 ATLANTA SUPER AND SPRINT WEEKEND 

October 5th, 2019

The Georgia International Horse Park was the home to the 1996 Olympic Equestrian events. Rolling hills and deep southern woods keep Spartans guessing what’s around the next corner. Georgia red clay makes slippery mud pits.

It is home to the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) and the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment.
