CUPS Go Spartan!

October 28, 2018
7:00 AM - 10:00 PM
Mountain Creek Resort 200 State Rt 94, Vernon, New Jersey 07462

Come join the CUPS team in the TriState Spartan Race next October 28th in Vernon, NJ! If you like outdoor activities and would like to challenge yourself in a friendly and fun environment, this event is for you!

The Spartan Sprint is the beginner level of the Spartan Race, an obstacle course run that combines 3-5 miles of trail running (or walking) with 23-25 obstacles, mud included! Finishers receive a super cool medal, a free t-shirt and free beer at the end.

If you volunteer at this event, you also get to do the race for free (a $15 insurance fee applies)! What are you waiting for? Come join us and become a Spartan with CUPS!



FAQs

What is the planned schedule for the day?

Departure from New York: 7am

Arrival on site: 8.30am

Race starting time: 10.15am

In order to accomodate for racing and volunteering on the same day, the CUPS team will be part of the Morning heat starting at 10:15am. Afternoon shifts for volunteering usually start at 1.00pm and you will still need to shower after the race to get rid of all the mud!

It is recommended to arrive at least one and a half hour before the starting time to find parking, take the 20-minute shuttle from the parking site to the venue, check-in your backpack, and proceed to registration to get your bib number and tracker.
