The first thing you will notice when you come to Fort Bragg, North Carolina, is how large it is. It is one of the largest U.S. Army installations in the world, spanning over 250 square miles. Home to the U.S. Army airborne forces, Special Forces, U.S. Army Forces Command and the U.S. Army Reserve Command, this area is so large that it is located across four separate counties. It’s only fitting that it’s also home to one of the military series Spartan Sprint races.
With woodlands, grass and of course, the almost obligatory water, a venue that homes the U.S. military is ideal to test Spartans of all ages -- from someone just off the couch, to a Spartan Pro.
The mountain biking and hiking trails are a favorite destination for those with a love of the outdoors. With the addition of the Spartan Signature Obstacles, it makes for the ideal setting to add to the Trifecta medal collection.
