Among the many Spartan Races that were cancelled in 2020, Palmerton was among the most disappointing. Typically hosted at Blue Mountain Resort in Palmerton, Pennsylvania, the annual event has become a “can’t miss” for elite and open wavers alike. However, this year’s cancellation isn’t a complete loss. Spartan will still host its Hurricane Heat Weekend on October 9-10. Even better, Blue Mountain Resort is hosting its first Blue Mountain Madness Obstacle Course Race on Saturday, October 3rd. Racers will maneuver through 20+ obstacles spread out over 10K of gorgeously, rugged tree-covered mountains.
Blue Mountain Resort takes COVID concerns seriously. There will be 4 registration waves in which racers are released :30 seconds apart to avoid bottlenecks. Course officials will sanitize obstacles between each wave. Space is limited, and registration ends Wednesday.
