The Spartan Trifecta World Championship returned to the world stage last year for the first time since 2019. This year, we're back again with an even bigger, bolder event weekend. Beginning with opening ceremonies, members of the Trifecta Tribe will return to Sparta, Greece, a city rooted in ancient Spartan history.
Among the mountains and ancient olive groves, four epic days of racing and unforgettable celebrations will unfold on Nov. 2-5, 2022, as athletes from across the globe attempt to earn their coveted Trifecta title — a Sprint, a Super, and a Beast — in the spiritual home of Spartan.
The 2023 Spartan Trifecta World Championship Schedule
The festivities kick off on Thursday, Nov. 2 with an opening ceremony and parade of nations. Throughout the following days, Trifecta athletes can race in all three event distances — 5K, 10K, and 21K — or choose to race in Open Sprint or Super heats. The racing begins with the Trifecta's shortest distance, a Sprint, and Spartan Kids races on Friday, Nov. 3. Trifecta World Championship racers will then progress to the Super on Saturday, and the weekend will culminate with the Beast on Sunday, including awards and closing ceremonies.
How to Qualify for the 2023 Spartan Trifecta World Championship
While there are no finishing time requirements, 2023 Trifecta World Championship qualifiers must have completed a Spartan Trifecta in either 2022 (Jan. 1-Dec. 31, 2022) or 2023 (Jan. 1-Nov. 1, 2023). With over 100 global Spartan event weekends in 2023, including 16 U.S. Trifecta weekends, there are plenty of opportunities throughout the year to earn your spot in Sparta.
Both Elite and Age Group racers will be recognized and awarded for their weekend accomplishments, with Elites in particular competing for a share of $30,000 in total prize money. For more information on rules, regulations, and prize money, visit our 2023 Trifecta World Championship FAQ page.
“Competing in the Trifecta World Championship in Sparta is a transformational experience,” Spartan CEO Joe De Sena said. “What better place to summon your strength, endurance, and mental toughness than across this historic city filled with the spirit of fearless warriors. Not only do you get the opportunity to challenge yourself, but you also get to feel the support of a community of like-minded people.”
