- $59 for one entry and one spectator pass to the Malibu Sprint ($120 value)
The four-mile track winds through Calamigos Ranch, hidden deep in the Santa Monica Mountains. It’s a fast course with a quick succession of climbs and descents studding the loose, rocky trails. At the top of the course, victorious warriors will be greeted with a jaw-dropping view of the Pacific Ocean.
Those scheduled to leave after 2 p.m. are strongly encouraged to bring a headlamp as the course gets dark quickly after 4:30 p.m. Officials may remove racers without headlamps if necessary. The race takes place on December 6 and 7.
Reebok Spartan Races
Extreme athletes banded together to design Reebok Spartan Races' intense courses orchestrated over standardized distances, each strewn with natural and man-made obstacles to test mind-body fitness, resilience, stamina, and strength, designed to leave participants exhausted and exhilarated. In waves of about 200, runners collect smudges and stains as they perform box jumps, haul heavy sandbags, and juke feral linebackers. Depending on where in the world they're participating, the course may be as short as 3 miles or, for extremely practiced athletes, as long as a full marathon.
