Northeast and Mid-Atlantic

If you need a Beast to complete your Trifecta, you can find them in Glen Jean, West Virginia (August 27), Killington, Vermont (September 10), and Vernon, New Jersey (October 1). West Virginia and New Jersey are full Trifecta weekends, so if you haven't raced with us yet in 2022, you can secure your Trifecta over the course of two days.

Additionally, in lieu of a Sprint, you can race the Stadions at Citizens Bank Park (September 17), Fenway Park (November 12-13), and Citi Field (November 19).

There are two Trifecta weekends, in Avondale, Arizona (November 19-20) and Sebring, Florida (December 10-11), and additional Beasts in Granbury, Texas (October 22) and Mill Spring, North Carolina (November 19).

West Coast

There are more races on the West Coast than in any other region, so if you live in that part of the country and don't complete your Trifecta in 2022 ... well ... you're not getting any sympathy from us. The second half of the season is loaded with races up and down the coast, with six races in California alone.

There are three Trifecta weekends, in Snohomish, Washington (August 13-14), Oahu, Hawaii (August 20-21), and Lebec, California (October 22-23), plus additional Beasts in Olympic Valley, California (September 24-25), which is also the same weekend as the Spartan Ultra World Championship.

In place of a Sprint, there are also Stadion races at Angel Stadium (July 23) and Oracle Park (December 3).

Midwest

Hopefully you completed the Beast in Ohio in June, because our Midwest slate is admittedly light. Following the Notre Dame Stadion in July, there are only two remaining Midwestern races in the second half of 2022. Following the Sprint and Super weekend in Oxford, Michigan on July 16-17, there is one remaining race in the region, which you might very well need to run to earn your Trifecta: the Sprint and Super weekend in Goshen, Indiana on November 5-6.

Goshen is about two-and-a-half hours from Chicago, and just under three hours from Indianapolis.
