Ottawa Spartan Beast & Ultra Beast 2015
The 2015 Eastern Canada Spartan Race season comes to a close with the Ottawa Super, Beast and Ultra Beast weekend at Mont Ste-Marie and the toughest and longest obstacle race in Canada.
The weekend got underway with the 16.3KM Ottawa Spartan Super distance on Saturday with 1,500 registered. But Sunday featured the big one! the 21+KM Spartan Beast distance with 2,000 registered and for the 42+KM Ultra Beast with 700 registered.
Ultra Beast Spartans did two laps of the Beast course, plus four Ultra Beast only obstacles for a course which totaled 51.47KMs or 32 miles according to My Suunto Ambit 3 Peak edition GPS watch, equipped with barometric altimeter that measured 3,214 meters or 10545 feet of elevation gain on the very hilly course.
I tackled the Ultra Beast in my Salomon S-Lab Exo Twin Skin compression shorts that feature excellent compressions, never get caught in barbed wire due to their tight fit and come in blue.
Beast finishers received a Spartan Beast finisher’s t-shirt in either cotton or dri fit and a green beast finisher’s medal with trifecta pie piece. While Ultra Beast finishers received a the beast medal for finishing their first lap, which was a hot topic leading up to the race, and a glow in the dark Ultra Beast finisher’s medal after the second lap. They also received a Beast finisher’s shirt.
