Welcome to the Thomas Pence Ranch. Located right outside Boise in Payette, ID the Thomas Pence Ranch is untouched ground. Don't let the beautiful scenery of Idaho fool you, this 3+ mile sprint will prove to be a formidable task for even the most seasoned Spartans. While enjoying scenic Payette Spartans can enjoy a local meal at Patrick's Pub or Salsa Grill, or swing through Payette's world famous nightclub The Rusty Banana. As the Thomas Pence Ranch is conveniently located adjacent to the Sawtooth National Forest, Spartans will have no trouble finding a breathtakingly beautiful hiking trail to pass the time and keep fit in preparation for what many Spartans describe as one of the more challenging courses available.
The best way to ensure that you are starting at the exact same start time as your friends is to create a Team during registration (or have your friends join your team!). Any racers that are registered as part of a team, on the SAME DAY in the SAME TIME BLOCK (Elite vs. Age Group vs. Morning vs. Afternoon), will be moved to the common team start time in each block when start times are assigned (about 10 days prior to the event). Racers that are registered for Sunday will not be moved to Saturday with a team, or vice versa.
Team times are NOT determined by the captains start time. Team members will be grouped together within each block (Elite, Age Group, Morning OR Afternoon), based on the preferred time that the majority of team members in that block choose. Racers that are registered for Elite or Morning start times will NOT be grouped with racers in the Afternoon start times or vice versa.
