  • Squaw Valley 1960 Squaw Valley Road Olympic Valley, CA, 96146 United States (map)

Spartan Race is a series of obstacle races of varying distance and difficulty ranging from 3 miles to marathon distances.


Located a short ride from Lake Tahoe, this epic venue was once host to the 1960 Olympic Winter Games. Join us today for the greatest obstacle course race in North Tahoe Lake, Olympic Village, CA!

The Village at Squaw Valley is a year-round destination in the heart of Squaw Valley, located in North Lake Tahoe. This European-inspired Village features over 40 bars, restaurants, galleries and boutiques, including a yoga studio and day spa. Condominium style suites are conveniently located for access to four season adventure including Aerial Tram rides to High Camp at 8200 feet, overlooking Lake Tahoe.

The obstacle racing weekend of the year will feature three Spartan Race distances to choose from over two days of racing: The Spartan Beast, Spartan Ultra and Spartan Trail. Which challenge are you ready to accept?

To do well, runners will need to prepare for the thin air as heights reach over 9,000 feet of elevation. Lake Tahoe is one of Northern California’s premier destinations and draws a healthy crowd year-round for its spectacular skiing, water sports, and outdoor activities. With 72 miles of shoreline straddling the California-Nevada state line, there’s always somewhere new to explore and plenty of terrain for Spartans to roam. The most popular areas to visit include the more nature-oriented North Tahoe, or the party scene of South Tahoe. Or you can do it all -- visitors have the potential travel around the lake in under 90 minutes.

Spartans are in for an adventure filled with traverses, climbs, crawls and perhaps even some swims. Come prepared.
