North American Championship

September 25, 2021 - North Lake Tahoe Spartan Beast - North Lake Tahoe, CA

Home to the Spartan World Championship from 2015 to 2019, this brutal and beautiful former Olympic venue has become infamous among Spartans for its elevation and unpredictable weather. Expect an intense race full of steep inclines, hairy descents, switchbacks, warm-to-freezing temperatures, and a peak elevation of 9,050 feet.

Ask other Spartans about it and they’re sure to mention the oftentimes freezing swim along with the stunning restaurants, bars, cafes and accommodation in and around the village.
