Competitors Return to the Shores of Flathead Lake in May
Wednesday, April 26, 2023—Kalispell, Montana—For the 10th year, the Montana Spartan Trifecta is returning to the Kalispell area and bringing competitors from near and far to this annual event. Held May 6-7, 2023, the race includes a sprint, super, beast, ultra and kids events.
“We have a long-standing relationship with Spartan and are delighted to be celebrating the tenth year here in Kalispell,” said Diane Medler, Executive Director for Discover Kalispell. “This event brings low-impact, high-value visitors to Kalispell and northwest Montana. In return, those visitors help bolster our local economy during a time of year that’s typically quieter.”
The racers that come to Kalispell to participate in the event contribute over $1 million to the local economy, as more than half of the racers stay in Kalispell hotels, motels and vacation rentals. More than half the participants live more than 400 miles away from Kalispell, and competitors come from near and far to race.
“The Montana Spartan Trifecta brings new visitors to Kalispell and the Flathead Valley,” added Medler. “Many of them will come for the race and extend their stay or plan a second trip back to Kalispell to explore more of our area.”
In addition, Discover Kalispell strategically works to encourage racers to shop, dine and explore Kalispell. Beyond just the participants, the Montana Spartan Trifecta supports local businesses and vendors that are an important part of the event experience, as well as supporting nonprofit groups through donations for services.
