Spartan Dallas Ultra, Beast And Sprint Weekend – Glen Rose, TX
Welcome to Rough Creek Lodge. The familiar terrain of sprawling hunting grounds keeps Spartans coming back year after year. The terrain is both beautiful and an obstacle in itself — with cacti along the trail every step of the way, and amazing views. To earn those vistas you’ll have to conquer some tough hills but we can promise you it’s worth it at the finish line. This course is known to throw the unexpected at racers, including double bucket carries and drastic temperature changes, so come prepared to Spartan Up.
TOP REASONS TO TAKE ON THIS COURSE:
1. It is a proven venue that promises the unexpected —just because you’ve run it before means nothing. This course changes more than most established venues, always keeping you on your toes.
2. The on-site accommodations are excellent. Rough Creek Lodge has activities from zip lining, rock climbing, horseback riding and tomahawk throwing, to spas and golfing. Just make sure you book early!
3. A chance to get out of the city. The venue is far enough from Dallas that you will find more fresh air, cactus and rabbits, than honking horns and concrete buildings. With such little light pollution at the ranch, it has excellent star gazing.
4. Load up on those Trifectas. Texas is one of the few states with the opportunity to get one or more Trifectas without traveling outside of the state. Complete the Beast in Dallas and Super in Austin, with both venues also offering Sprints.
