Big Bear SPARTAN Trifecta Weekend – MAY

Big Bear Spartan Trifecta Weekend!

MAY 21st-22nd, 2023


Why does Big Bear Mountain Resort make for an awesome Spartan venue? Hills, hills, and more hills! You won’t be short on elevation gain during this race. The course can reach as high as 8,200 feet, with 1,200 feet of vertical drop. Be warned — this is a race your calves will never forget!


Every Spartan races for a different reason. For some it means competing with other racers, for others it’s to achieve a personal goal, and for some it’s a way to enjoy time with friends. Regardless of your motivation, there’s a race for you. This event is a Trifecta Weekend, a chance to complete the Sprint, Super & Beast in one weekend. Plus you’ll qualify for the 2023 Trifecta World Championship in Sparta, Greece!

21k BEAST!

The Spartan Beast calls on you to unleash your inner beast to tackle this 21K course sitting at roughly 7000 feet with 30 high intensity obstacles between you and the finish line. You’ll put not only your physical strength and endurance to the test, but your mental game as well. The Spartan Beast will test everything you’re made of so show the world what you got Spartan!

10k SUPER!

The Spartan Super offers the ideal blend of endurance and strength. Challenging you with 25 obstacles along a 10K route, the Super event spares no one. Rugged terrain paired with a high-altitude setting will force you to prove to yourself that you’ve got what it takes to conquer this trek. The Super Race is developed as the second race in the Spartan Trifecta.


The Spartan Sprint is the shortest course at a 5K distance with 20 obstacles. But, don’t be fooled, this event is designed to max out Spartans with a 1732 foot elevation gain at and above 7000 feet in altitude. Steep, technical climbs will push you to see what you’re made of. The Sprint is the perfect gateway into the world of Spartan and is a Spartan Trifecta eligible event. See you at the starting line!
