Spartan Race – Trifecta Weekend

 

The Trifecta is the greatest annual Spartan challenge, which sees its competitors cross high-altitude lakes, swim in white water rivers and climb immense slopes, all whilst running up to 50km! These brutal circuits are designed to push limits and test its competitors’ athleticism and mental strength. Don’t worry, we don’t blame you if you don’t want to take part…! However, if you fancy spectating, the Spartan Race route comes directly through the town centre and extends onto the ski slopes. Show your support for the ‘Spartans’ and give them a cheer of encouragement if you’re in Morzine on race day.
