Atlanta Spartan Race Details

Race Information

The Georgia International Horse Park was the home to the 1996 Olympic Equestrian events. Rolling hills and deep southern woods keep Spartans guessing what’s around the next corner. Georgia red clay makes slippery mud pits.

Race Details

Terrain: While this venue provides some fast moving single-track trails, the surrounding forest, hills, and swamps create unexpected challenges for all racers. If you are thinking the well maintained grass will help you out just know that the slick Georgia clay lays directly below that and any bit of rain or thawing snow will leave you sliding everywhere.

BUILD A TEAM: Strength comes in numbers.

Callout your friends, co-workers and loved ones to get off the couch and into the mud.
Whether they’re helping you over the wall or chasing you up the mountain, make sure they’re with you at the starting line.

Teams can be any size but must have at least 4 members to be included in the team rankings.


Getting all your friends registered and lined up together on race day can be tricky. Avoid any confusion by checking out 2015: Team Registration and Start Times.
