PITTSFIELD, VT – The legendary Spartan Death Race returns to the green mountains of Vermont at legendary Riverside Farm to push 100 competitors to their breaking points. Known to be one of the hardest endurance events in the world, the 2018 race promises to bring the pain and mayhem that defines this unpredictable event which has returned after a two-year hiatus.
Every Death Race is its own uniquely brutal challenge, with no two alike, and is designed as the ultimate means for athletes to test their physical and mental prowess. Under the direction of Spartan CEO Joe De Sena, competitors are provided with a gear list, start time and location; and from there face a series of grueling challenges for more than 48 hours with little to no sleep. Fewer than 20 percent of competitors have successfully completed the race since its inception in 2007.
