Summit Bechtel Reserve is widely known for its natural beauty, its unbeatable white-water rafting, and the fact that every four years, its 10,000+ acres of pristine land play host to the National Boy Scouts Jamboree. This year, SBR’s rolling hills welcome a different kind of gathering: their first-ever Spartan Race.

Top Reasons to Take on this Course:

1. The Boy Scouts of America have turned SBR into the capital of outdoor adventure. Enjoy kayaking, hiking, mountain-biking, and zip-lines in southern West Virginia.

2. As one of four facilities managed by the National Council of Boy Scouts of America, SBR is a hallmark of American sustainability and preservation. Their Sustainability Treehouse is equipped with a rainwater recovery system andĀ a full-blown wind-powered generator.

3. SBR’s vast array of hills, steep inclines, water features and technical terrain will test your athleticism like nothing else.

4. After taking in the view from the summit, you can see SBR’s stunning landscape from another point of view: looking down from the 800-foot-long Triple Walkway Suspension Bridge.
