This year Spartan will be in Grand Rapids, less than an hour from the shore of Lake Michigan, and two hours from Detroit and Chicago. Millennium Park is one of the nation’s largest urban parks with no shortage of rolling terrain, wildlife and mileage on the river. After you tackle your 10K Super or 5K Sprint, hit the city known for its beautiful scenery and craft beers.
All finishers receive a T-shirt, medal and professional photos, and every registration comes with access to the Spartan Account to track your tickets, race results, photos, teams, and challenges.
