The cancellations and postponements of races continues to pile up, as the COVID-19 pandemic takes it’s toll on the OCR and Endurance Race industry. Below is a list of races that have been cancelled or postponed. We will keep this page updated as more information becomes available.
Update June 25, 2020
The Utah event is BACK ON. The event is moving back to Solider Hollow in Midway UT, where the event took place for many years before moving to Huntsville last year. The event will now be a trifecta weekend and will offer an ULTRA as well. The Super distance will be part of the USNS. There are some space constraints at this venue which is making for some interesting decisions. The Beast will be 2 laps of the Super course. The Ultra will be 5 laps of the Super course.
Some other updates include:
The Big Bear Event that was to take place in May has now been moved to October 3rd.
The Vermont Beast and ULTRA scheduled for September 12 are now cancelled. These love/hate events will NOT be happening this year. The 24 Hour ULTRA Championship scheduled for Sept 19, is also cancelled. Spartan let us know they will have more information coming about a new location for this championship event.

UPDATE March 13, 2020 3:00PM EST: Spartan Race has announced the postponing of all US-based races effective immediately. The temporary suspension will last through April 12, 2020.
This temporary halt on all events will impact races all over the country, including the second stop of the US National Series in Seattle, and the kick-off race of the US Stadion Series at CitiField in New York.
At this time all races scheduled after April 12, 2020 are still considered to be on schedule.
The decision to suspend these events comes after the sudden and abrupt cancellation of the San Antonio Super & Sprint weekend that was scheduled for March 14-15 as well as the postponing of the San Luis Obispo weekend.

Very frustrating and especially since I registered for Indiana this past Tuesday evening. I understand their reasoning and most every occasion it is beyond Spartan Race’s control. This will be the third race this year that has been cancelled.
The zendesk page is down. I haven’t received am email from Spartan that Fayettville is cancelled and it is still available for sign up on Spartans page.
We believe it has been updated. Can you recheck today?
