There’s no dress code, but you’ll be running in mud and water, climbing hills and mountains, under barbed wire and jumping fire. Our elites recommend: performance gear (NOT COTTON), water packs, compression underwear, Clif bars and energy gel. Visit shop.spartan.com to gear up for your race. Advice from experience: is to race in what you train in - new shoes on race day are NOT recommended.
