What’s included in a membership?
A monthly membership allows you to come out and do our open course on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays as often as you’d like. Weekend classes and workshops are not included as part of the membership, however classes are discounted for MPS members.
Is there a minimum monthly membership?
Yes, to sign up for a monthly membership you will need to commit to a minimum of a three month contract. After three months you can contact us to cancel or freeze your membership at any time.
Please keep in mind that you must contact us directly to cancel your membership.
What’s included in a package?
Packages are like memberships, except they aren’t unlimited. When you purchase a 10 or 20 session package, you can use those sessions for our open course on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
What’s the difference between “obstacle technique workshops” and workshops “hosted by MPS?”
Mission Peak Spartans has grown exponentially over the past three years. Initially, there was only one workshop. Then we added a second, and a third.
This year, we opened up the opportunity for our coaches to start their own workshops. Each coach brings a different skillset, teaching style, and focus to their respective workshops, and we highly encourage everyone to try out different workshops run by different coaches.
The original three MPS workshops are now offered in the afternoons, from 2-5pm. These workshops are popular, so we encourage you to sign up for them online ahead of time to secure your spot.
How do classes that are hosted by MPS work?
Classes are run by independent coaches. This gives our coaches the freedom to use their respective knowledge and strengths to help our members and guests at MPS succeed. All classes are paid for onsite with payment taken by the coach. Whenever possible, we list class prices on our website. To find out more about specific class costs and accepted payment types, please contact the coach teaching the class that you’re interested in.
Are there group discounts?
We do offer one-time or special event group discounts. To find out more, please contact us directly and be prepared to let us know how many people are in your group and whether you are interested in open course or coach-led training. Please keep in mind that group discounts are offered one time as a special event unless otherwise discussed with us, and we will need everyone in your group to sign up online and pay in advance in order to get the discount.
What are the benefits to being an MPS member?
- It greatly reduces the cost of using our open course. Drop in prices for open course are $30 per session, which means if you come out and use our course more than twice in a month, your membership is saving you money.
- Classes and events are discounted for MPS members.
- It enables you to bring a friend to check out our course as your guest, for free. This benefit is available one time per guest.
- It allows you to be a full participant in our Tribes program, which includes being a part of our closed groups, and taking part in at-home challenges.
In addition, being a member of Mission Peak Spartans also means being a part of our awesome community. We have members-only Facebook chats and groups to coordinate race travel, lodging, team meals, and other fun events. Being a member also enables you to join a tribe and earn points for your tribe through challenges in a fun atmosphere.
What’s a tribe? How do I become a part of a tribe?
Tribes are a new program we introduced to our members on Dec 31, 2018. Here’s how it works: Currently, we have three tribes, MPS members can become a part of a tribe and earn points for your tribe through challenges, races, class attendance, etc. Skill level doesn’t matter here, everyone can contribute and earn points regardless of your skill, conditioning level, or experience with Spartan Race. We designed the tribe program to encourage a sense of teamwork and community, and to help you progress toward both team and individual goals.
What payment do you accept?
- Online, we accept all major credit cards for memberships, packages, and technique workshops.
- In person, we accept cash or credit card for our memberships, packages, open course drop-in, and technique workshops.
- All payment for classes and workshops hosted by MPS is handled by the coach running the class, so please check with us ahead of time to find out what forms of payment can be accepted for these.

Please check out schedule online for the most up to date information, as we do close for certain local races, events, and major holidays.
Are you ever closed?
Yes, we will close the course on some major holidays as well as select local race weekends where our entire community goes out to compete. In addition, because our course is outdoors, if weather conditions make training unsafe, we will close the course. If you’re not sure if we will be open, please call or send us a message to confirm.
Is your program kid friendly?
Most of the obstacles we build our made to Spartan specifications, which are designed for adults. Spartan race rules state that all participants must be at least 14. Because of this, our workshops and SGX small group classes are limited to adults and mature high schoolers.
However, we have recently added kids classes to the Mission Peak Schedule. These classes help teach kids about spartan values and how to overcome obstacles on and off the course. We’ve also built some new kid sized obstacles specifically for these classes. You can view our kids class schedule at any time online.
Any children under the age of 14 must be supervised by a parent or guardian at all times. Anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian sign our participant waiver.
Do you offer a student discount?
Yes, all high school students with a valid high school ID can come out and use our open course for free. Classes and workshops are regular price.
Do you offer a discount for active duty military, veterans, or first responders?
Yes, please contact us in advance and let us know what you are interested in so that we can accomodate.
Where are you located?
Our course is located at the track at Irvington high school. The address is 41800 Blacow Rd, Fremont, CA 94538. You can park in the large parking lot off Blacow Rd. You’ll find our course and registration table to the right of the track under the Spartan flags.
What Obstacles do you have?
Our course is designed to prepare you for just about everything you’ll encounter in a Spartan Race, and we are always adding new obstacles to our course. Check out our obstacle page for photos and more information about our obstacles.
Do you sell MPS merch?
We do! Currently we have Mission Peak Spartans race jerseys and hats available for purchase onsite at our course. In the near future we will also be selling gloves to help you tackle obstacles. We also sell water and other drinks onsite.
I’ve never done a Spartan Race before, where do I start?
For people who are new to Spartan Race we highly recommend starting with our Obstacle Technique Workshops. These workshops are instructional in nature, and are designed to teach you how to conquer the obstacles you’ll see in a race in the safest and most efficient way possible.
I have more questions, how do I contact you?
