THE HURRICANE HEAT

TEAM-BASED

EVENT

This extreme event began in Hurricane Irene in 2011, when weather was so brutal all races were shut down. Spartan put out a call: all those hard enough to face the storm, show up on race day. Most didn’t, a few did; and the Hurricane Heat was born.

THE CHALLENGE

Each Hurricane Heat is entirely unpredictable, so ensuring your all-round functional fitness is as good as it can be by event day is key to a successful and enjoyable event. Distance running and marches with a weighted pack are excellent prep, as is bodyweight loaded workouts featuring squats, pushups, dips, burpees, and jumping jacks. Check out the plans for more.

TRAINING CENTER

Every Hurricane Heat has a standard gear list, along with custom items which change for every event. The event leaders will share the custom list with all registered students prior to each event. Some items will be for your safety, others will be for specific use during the event, and they may appear strange or confusing at first! Check out the standard list here.
