San Luis Obispo Spartan Race Weekend


Coming in from out of town? Stay affordably in nearby Santa Maria Valley, and spend a couple days before or after race weekend in wine country on the Central Coast.

San Luis Obispo County, or SLO CAL, offers sunny days and star-studded nights, which await you at Santa Margarita Ranch, one of the largest operating vineyards in an area known for its wine production. Dash through the rows of growing grapevines during bud break and in epic open landscapes, surrounded by the towering Los Padres National Forest. On the course, you’ll take in views of wildlife and a fossilized oyster bed. This is one of our faster Ultras and a perfect destination for first-time racers to take on the 50K challenge. This weekend also features Spartan Trail Races.

All finishers receive a T-shirt, medal and professional photos, and every registration comes with access to the Spartan Account to track your tickets, race results, photos, teams, and challenges.

Race individually, run as a team, or sign up to volunteer! Race day info including arrival/heat times, what to bring/wear, and parking can be found on the race website.

Pro-tip: The fun doesn’t end with the race. Don’t forget to book your stay in Santa Maria Valley where you can indulge in award-winning wine, Santa Maria-style barbecue and the wide-open outdoors. Extend your trip with us, without breaking the bank.
