OCT 26-27, 2019
DALLAS ULTRA, BEAST AND SPRINT WEEKEND
ROUGH CREEK LODGE, GLEN ROSE TX
Welcome to Rough Creek Lodge. The familiar terrain of sprawling hunting grounds keeps Spartans coming back year after year. The terrain is both beautiful and an obstacle in itself -- with cacti along the trail every step of the way, and amazing views. To earn those vistas you’ll have to conquer some tough hills but we can promise you it's worth it at the finish line. This course is known to throw the unexpected at racers, including double bucket carries and drastic temperature changes, so come prepared to Spartan Up.

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.
