“The first season of Spartan Trail has been so overwhelming popular, we had to create a championship event to end the season the right way,” said Spartan Director of Product Management Josue Stephens. “This year’s trail events have drawn some of the best names in trail running, and with the unprecedented $50,000 prize purse, we expect a strong turnout and highly competitive event.”
