Review of Spartan Race – Malibu by Dan Anthony

Posted by: on December, 3 2012

I really enjoyed this race. As is always the case with a Spartan event, it was well organized, a challenging course layout and well attended. It was wet and on the colder side which made for slow going but a very fun day.

The only bummer about this race was the fact that you had to park quite a ways away and get shuttled in. Because of this I had my wife drop me off so the family wasnt able to watch the event. My guess is the organizers did this because the forecast was for rain and the dirt parking lots probably would have been destroyed and cars would have gotten stuck etc. For that reason I am giving pre-race a “B”, but if parking would have been easier this would have been an “A” as well.
