Event Description

LOUISVILLE - FORT KNOX SPRINT

Fort Knox is a United States Army post in Kentucky south of Louisville and north of Elizabethtown. Fort Knox’s training range complex will become the fifth Army installation to host a Reebok Spartan Race and is the third stop in our honor military series. The army installations that have already hosted Spartans on their turf include Fort Bragg, Fort Campbell, Fort Benning, and Fort Carson. Fort Knox is the perfect Spartan Race venue because of its topography and its close proximity to larger metropolitan areas. Don’t miss your opportunity to race at such a unique venue and test your skills on over 109,000 acres of rough terrain.
