Top 10 Photos from the Reebok Spartan Race World Championships

The 2016 Reebok Spartan Race season concluded this weekend with Hobie Call and Zuzana Kocumova clinching the men’s and women’s titles of Reebok Spartan Race World Champion.

The two battled 14 miles of obstacles including the Ape Hanger, Herculean Pull and a frigid swim to outlast challengers from around the globe. 

After Call and Kocumova won the elite heat on Saturday, the Sprint, Beast and Ultra Beast heats competed throughout the remainder of the weekend.    

Whether a novice or expert, athletes trained for a variety of obstacles in this ultimate test of strength and endurance.  This Lake Tahoe, Calif., venue did not disappoint, with both new obstacles and old favorites making up the course. 

Racing season may have ended, but we rounded up the best reactions to these insane obstacles from Reebok Spartan racers.
