Welcome To Blood Root Ultra!

Established in 2007 by Spartan Founder Joe De Sena. The Bloodroot Ultra is the original Spartan Trail race nestled in the foothills of the Vermont Green Mountains in the rustic New England town of Pittsfield, Vt. This course allows for multiple distances that explore the trails of Green Mountain National Forest and terrain that will test your mettle with 1,500 feet in elevation gain. You’ll come to find the true magic of ‘people inspiring people’ through our unique race experience designed to help you not only discover the beauty of the Vermont mountains but yourself as well. Get ready to Go Beyond Your Limits!
