CAROLINAS ULTRA, BEAST AND SPRINT WEEKEND
TRYON INTERNATIONAL EQUESTRIAN CENTER, MILL SPRING NC
Saddle up, Spartans: We’re off to the races at the Tryon International Equestrian Center. This massive venue is typically a global hub for the world’s top horseback riders. But this November, the course will host Spartans from the Carolinas and beyond for 3-mile, 13-mile and 30-mile challenges.
This course is perfect for beginners and elites alike. Its well-trodden trails make for solid running terrain. But don’t let the level ground fool you. You’ll still have to climb through red clay and traverse rushing creeks if you want to reach the finish line.
Don’t be a neigh-sayer. Register to run a Sprint, Beast or Ultra today.

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!
