If you are familiar with Obstacle Course Racing events, our Shared trail races live together with a Spartan festival Weekend adding one more challenge to be raced if you’re an avid Spartan racer. A great intro to your trail running journey if you’re coming from the OCR world, or an awesome chance to try your first Obstacle race if you’re a trail runner.

PHOENIX SKY HARBOR INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (PHX)
Just outside of Phoenix, Fort McDowell Rodeo Grounds is home to classic desert trail running.
Racers will weave through tall saguaro cactus and epic rock formations on sandy, rolling trails. Though there won’t be huge climbs, the winding trails are rhythm breakers, so technical runners will be rewarded. Runners should also watch for wildlife — snakes, lizards, and even the wild javelina inhabit this desert, so watch your step!
