Don’t let the scenic views and beautiful trails of Blue Mountain fool you, our hilly Pennsylvania Spartan Race courses will be punishing. The reward is waiting for you at the end, after conquering PA's highest vertical!


This U.S. Championship Series Race is one of our premier race events of the entire year.

It’s time to truly put yourself and your training to the ultimate test. The U.S. Championship Series is here.

Are you up for a course designed to challenge our elite Spartans? At the Pennsylvania Super and Sprint Weekend, you’ll come face-to-face with Pennsylvania’s BLUE MOUNTAIN, taking on steep slopes that intimidate you… long climbs that challenge you… and obstacles that threaten you.

This event was designed to challenge the elites for the U.S. Championship Series and will be televised on NBC Sports. The series leads to our ultimate obstacle race of the entire year – the World Championship at Lake Tahoe.

On Blue Mountain, you’ll run in and out of dense forest as you climb the mountain, facing obstacles designed to test the elites. If you’re strong and determined enough, you’ll be rewarded with amazing views from the top – and then your challenging descent begins.

Don’t race alone. Invite your friends and family to cheer you on. This is an amazing course for spectators. They can take the chair lift ride to the top for jaw-dropping views of the course and surrounding area.

Put yourself to the test at this “MUST RACE” event. Take on Pennsylvania’s Blue Mountain – and race the same U.S. Championship Series courses as the elites.

    Robin Trower

    Penn’s Peak is proud to announce Robin Trower, Wednesday, April 4, 2018 at 8:00 pm in Jim Thorpe PA.  The Robin Trower story started in the mid Sixties when he began his recording career in the Southend rhythm and blues band The Paramounts. But the first time Trower pinged on rock’n’roll’s radar was in 1967, with Procol Harum – house band of the Summer of Love. Though he did not play on their mega-hit ‘A Whiter Shade Of Pale’, he completed five albums and many tours with them before breaking away for a solo career in 1971.
