To sign up for technique workshops:

1. Create a mindbody account with us

2. Purchase either individual workshops or the 3 workshop bundle

3. Sign up for the date and time that you want to attend.

Signing up online will reserve your spot, which is especially important in the weeks leading up to major races. If you'd like to purchase a workshop for someone else, or have any other special considerations when signing up, please contact us. 

Do you have any discounts for drop-in? 

Yes, your first time drop in $15 rather than the regular price of $35. After that, signing up online will save you $5, to drop the drop-in rate to $30 per visit.

If you'd like to save more, packages are a great way to get even deeper discounts on open course visits.

What's are the differences between classes, workshops, and open course? 

Open course is like open gym, which means you come out and train on our obstacles at your own pace. We will post a course of the day that you can follow, or you can just focus on whatever obstacles you need practice with. This option does not include any instruction. 

Classes are recurring group workouts, led by a coach. If you've ever taken a group fitness class before, that's similar to our classes, with a spartan twist. Classes are scalable to your fitness and experience level, and are often attended by our members on a regular weekly cadence. The focus of classes is on improving strength, conditioning, or endurance over multiple sessions. 

Workshops are instructional in nature, and focus on teaching you skills and techniques that you can use in your own training and racing in the future. Workshops are also led by a coach, but are generally only taken once as the focus is on teaching specific skills rather than improving strength and conditioning. 

Are you ever closed on the weekend?

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 are 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 Spartans 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 stay with, and be supervised by, a parent or guardian at all times even if they aren't doing the obstacles. 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.

Do you sell MPS merch?

We do! Currently we have Mission Peak Spartans race jerseys, tank tops, and hats available for purchase onsite at our course. If you need gloves for your next race, we also sell gloves that have been rigorously tested and approved by our very own spartan community members.  

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 Foundations Workshop. This workshop is 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?

You can always get in touch with us via email, Facebook messenger, or by phone. We’d love to hear from you and answer any additional questions you may have. 

Please note: If you call or message us during our open course hours, we may not be able to respond. During this time we are often teaching classes, running workshops, giving new members course tours, providing our members with tips, and ensuring everyone at the course is having an awesome experience :-)  .
