Located only six miles from downtown Salinas near the town of Monterey, Toro Park is a vast, sprawling venue covering almost 5,000 acres. With punishing hills, fields and prairies as well as many picturesque wooded areas, it’s easy to understand why this venue is a favorite amongst Spartans.
This course’s terrain is so diverse that it was initially a Beast in the early days of Spartan Race, but it packs enough punch to easily host a grueling Super. With miles of different trail routes, the race directors will be sure to take full advantage of variety and unleash a hailstorm of twists and turns.
The magnificent views from on top of the many peaks are worthy of a quick rest to appreciate the stunning sight of the outlying Northern California. The weather can be deceptively warm without humidity, so remember to hydrate well for the dry and dusty peaks. Be sure to look out for the local wildlife as Toro Park is teeming with critters watching you sprint to the next obstacle.
