MONTEREY SUPER AND SPRINT WEEKEND
TORO PARK, SALINAS CA
Located only six miles from downtown Salinas near the town of Monterey, the park is a vast, sprawling venue covering almost 5,000 acres. With punishing hills, fields and prairies as well as many picturesque wooded areas, it’s easy to understand why this venue is a favorite amongst Spartans.
With miles of different trail routes, the race directors will be sure to take full advantage of variety and unleash a hailstorm of twists and turns.
The magnificent views from on top of the many peaks are worthy of a quick rest to appreciate the stunning sight of the outlying Northern California. The weather can be deceptively warm without humidity, so remember to hydrate well for the dry and dusty peaks. Be sure to look out for the local wildlife as the park is teeming with critters watching you sprint to the next hill.

*Please pay attention and follow directional signage to the parking lot. A complimentary 15 minute shuttle to the venue will be provided.
ARRIVAL: BE EARLY
Arrive an hour and a half before your start time. This gives you plenty of time to park, pick up your packet, drop your stuff at bag check, and get warmed up.
Registration opens at 6:30am.
WHAT TO BRING
Barcode (print or save your registration barcode to your phone.)
Towel & extra (dry) clothes
Recommended: Headlamp and Camelback
WHAT NOT TO BRING
Outside food and drink (racers, fuel for the race is OK), Negative Attitude
WHAT TO WEAR
We recommend dressing in performance gear (NOT COTTON). Think compression tights or shorts and breathable tops made from water wicking material. Wear comfortable shoes that you’ve trained in, but beware, they are going to get dirty.
In addition to your clothes, consider fuel when planning for race day. For a Sprint distance you can normally get away with the water stations on course, but for our longer distances (Super, Beast, Ultra) we strongly suggest wearing a hydration pack and carrying energy gels or Clif bars.
We have all you need to gear up for race day at the Spartan Shop.
Professional event day photos will be posted on the event page 5-7 days after the event, FREE OF CHARGE! We’ll email you when your photos are ready!
