Welcome to NES!

Formed in 2012, the New England Spahtens are one of the most active, welcoming and supportive obstacle course racing communities in the world. We are a registered 501(c)(7) social club, and you are welcome to join us.

We welcome everyone – from the couch warrior looking to participate in their first mud run, to the active and enthusiastic obstacle race athlete looking for new friends and a community. Most of the below resources are open to all for free – annual Members receive a discount to our store, sneak peaks and some other goodies on top of that!

Welcome to the community!
