Spartan just announced that they are accepting applications for the 2013 Spartan UltraBeast. A 26.2+ miles obstacle race that takes place in Killington, VT. Last year, only half of the 350 person field that started the event finished. Many quit somewhere between Lap 1 and Lap 2, and several did not make time cutoffs and were pulled from the course.
An email that was just released by Spartan stating all who ran last year are automatically accepted back in. An additional email states they are starting to accept applications for the remaining slots. (1000 total accepted).
Another huge portion of these announcements is that the Ultra Beast will take place on Sunday the 22nd, instead of Saturday.

Stay tuned for more information as we receive it.
