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.

Palmerton has a secret that the obstacle racers don’t know about. While this is one of the oldest, most tried-and-true venues on the Spartan OCR circuit, there’s another side of Blue Mountain that those racers have never touched.
Outside of the normal ski area boundary lie miles of pristine singletrack trails too narrow and inaccessible for obstacle building. That means that only Spartan Trail racers get to experience them, and those trails make this race a racer favorite.
But you won’t get off that easy, because some of Palmerton’s legendary hills are still waiting!
