Boston, get ready: we’re shaking things up. This year, we’re teaming up with 508 International in Charlton, MA for a weekend you (and your legs) will never forget.
Located 50 miles from downtown Boston, 508 INTL is an elite action sports venue spread out across some of the muddiest terrain Massachusetts has to offer. Spartan isn’t their first OCR rodeo, either: 508 INTL hosts its own rugged endurance events. We’re pumped to work with them to bring you Massachusetts’s biggest, baddest course yet.
WHY 508 INTL?
- The venue is huge. Like hundreds of acres of trail running huge. In addition to the challenges we throw your way, you’ll have to overcome nature’s own obstacles on this technical terrain. Oh, and did we mention that you should bring a towel? You’re going to get wet.
- Looking for something to do in your down time? No problem. 508 INTL offers everything from yoga classes, to slacklining, to disc golf.
- The venue is located in Charlton, a quick drive away from Worcester, one of the fastest-growing cities in the country. Head over to downtown Worcester for a tour of the Tower Hill Botanical Gardens, grab some grub and a drink at Wormtown Brewery, or bring your little Spartans to the zoo at Green Hill Park.
- And, of course, Boston is only a 50 mile drive away, with easy access to Logan International Airport. One of the nation’s oldest cities, Boston is teeming with culture, nightlife, and history.
40 minutes Fastest Time
The Sprint may be our shortest distance race, but it’s still a favorite amongst both new and returning racers. It’s the perfect distance for those looking to start their Spartan journey. The Sprint also allows returning racers a manageable distance to see how far they can push themselves. Delivering 20-23 obstacles over 3-5 miles, you’ll never run the same race twice. Once you complete the sprint you are 1/3 on your Spartan TRIFECTA: The ultimate Spartan achievement.
