Spartan Races

If you are new to OCR I would suggest starting with a Savage Race. Savage Race obstacles are easier and more about having fun. A Spartan Race obstacle is more like carry this bucket of gravel up a hill, where a Savage Race obstacle is climb up this platform and go down a water slide into a pool. Both series can be as hard as you make them, but I feel the Spartan Races are designed to push your limits more.

Spartan Races come in a few flavors. Sprint, Super, Beast, Ultra, and 4-hour Hurricane Heat (HH), and 12-hour HH. You should also be aware of the location of the race. If it is at a ski mountian it is going to be much harder race. The different race types are detailed below.
