The annual Reebok Spartan Race has held an Asheville event for the past few years, and Black Mountain's Grovestone Stone and Sand Company's location for the rugged obstacle course has quickly gained acclaim as an ideal race to participate in to challenge the body and mind. Whether you will be racing with a team or want to cheer on friends and family as a spectator -- this is a must-attend event for the Asheville area.
The event runs from Saturday to Sunday and includes Saturday's Reebok Spartan Super with 8-10 miles and over 25 Signature Spartan Obstacles that will test even the strongest of participants. Sunday's event is the Spartan Sprint and includes 3-5 miles of 20+ Signature Spartan Obstacles. There is also a shorter, 1-2 mile kid's race that is offered both days.
To participate in the events as a team, a team must have at least 4 members to be included in the team rankings.
Asheville's rugged, rocky and natural beauty will both challenge you and spur you over the finish line.
Many lodging and accommodation options are available in the Asheville area to turn your Spartan Race adventure into a vacation (or just to have a place to rest your head and relax for the long weekend), including Greybeard's nearly 200 vacation rentals and cabins - half of which are located in Black Mountain for close access to the race and room for larger groups.
