If you would like to inquire about splitting a package with a significant other, training partner, etc, it will need to be done by a staff member at the course with signoff from the coach or manager on duty.
What's the difference between classes/workshops and open course?
Open course is exactly what it sounds like, the course is open for anyone to use as they like. We will provide a workout of the day if you'd like something to follow, otherwise you can feel free to practice whatever you like.
Classes and workshops are led by a certified Spartan SGX coach. We highly recommend our technique workshops for anyone who is new to Spartan racing so that you can learn the safest and most efficient methods to conquer the different obstacles.

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 (such as a membership, package, etc) so that we can accommodate.
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. If you need gloves for your next race, we have Mission peak Spartan tested and approved gloves for sale in many sizes. 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?
