Prefer to spectate? Or want to volunteer?

Even if you’re pretty sure the mud and mountains aren’t for you, you don’t have to miss out! Watch the race Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 20-21 from four “spectator locations:” the K-1 deck, the Roaring Brook Umbrella Bars, the Snowshed area and the Snowshed Pond.

Spectators will be charged $25 at door, cash only (or $20 in advanced if purchased online). Parking is an additional $10, cash only.

All spectators must have a spectator ticket to access the races. Spartan Race spectators will receive $5 Spartan bucks redeemable at the merchandise tent, entry to the festival area, a festival map, access to some of the obstacles on course, not to mention the epic Gladiator Pit and finish line.

Enjoy the music and watch your friends and loved ones slip and slide through the Spartan course, in the safety and comfort of the Spartan Race festival ground areas! Raffles, entertainment, spectator challenges, free muddy hugs from Spartan athletes, and all the other festival perks make this entry price truly worth it!

Outside food and drink, coolers and tents are not allowed. You are welcome to bring a folding chair, backpack, etc.

All spectators must sign an event waiver.

Volunteers needed
