Event Description

JUN 27-28, 2020
WASHINGTON DC SPRINT WEEKEND
MARYLAND INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY, MECHANICSVILLE MD

Make your way to Maryland International Raceway as you prepare to sprint in our nation’s capital. This is a venue that is usually reserved for race cars, but will be replaced by machines much more powerful: Spartans.

This seasonal drag strip has a capacity of 12,500 and is known for its car races and shows. With terrain usually primed for tires, prepare for some tough conditions. There will be hills and lots of mud. Take this advice: get in some hill workouts before taking on this course -- your legs will thank you. Form a team and come dominate this 3+ mile Spartan Sprint.

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.

Your ID
Barcode (print or save your registration barcode to your phone. Click here for instructions on how to find it.)
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.
