The Super

8 mi / 13 km, 25 Obstacles

Take your workout up a notch. With 25 obstacles and 8 miles of rugged terrain, the Spartan Super is a true test of athleticism and grit.

THE SPARTAN SUPER

The Super is a formidable blend of distance and speed, designed to push the limits of those seeking a true challenge. 8 miles await you on this type of unique layout that only Spartan could deliver. Longer runs and signature obstacles make the Super a must for any obstacle course racer.

The Super is a step up from the 3-mile Sprint and a great segue to the 13-mile Beast. You want to earn your TRIFECTA? Then you’re going to have to conquer a Super to get there. You can choose to run in the Open Category to take it at your own pace, or race in the Elite or Age Group categories for a fierce challenge.

Whether you are working towards your TRIFECTA or seeking a new distance to challenge yourself, the Super is calling your name.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The Super course consists of 8 miles (13 km) of wild and exhilarating terrain, along with 25 of Spartan’s signature obstacles to keep you on your toes. That’s five more miles and five more obstacles than the Sprint. The Super is for those looking to take their Spartan journey to the next level. From classic obstacles like the spear throw to new challenges like the Helix, you’ll face a surprise with every turn.

Once you have crossed the finish line, you will be one step closer to joining the TRIFECTA tribe: a gritty group of racers who have completed a Sprint, Super, and Beast or Ultra in one calendar year.

RACER INFO

Choose from three Registration Categories

The Spartan Starting Line is unique. Instead of one big wave like a marathon, groups of Spartan racers take off every 15 minutes throughout the day. When signing up for a Spartan Super, choose from three registration categories:

  • ELITE:

    • The most competitive category, the Elite Heat is split between Male and Female racers. These are the first two start times of the day, usually 7:30 and 7:45am. Racers in the Elite Heat are eligible for cash prizes and Elite rankings. For more info, see the Elite Category FAQ.
  • AGE GROUP:

    • After the Elite heats take off, it’s time for Age Group. Racers will only compete against racers in the same age bracket (and gender based on heat capacity) and each bracket will have a designated start time. The top three finishers in each age group receive awards. For more info, see the Age Group Category FAQ.
  • OPEN:

    • The Open Category is for all skill levels and teamwork is encouraged. No prizes are awarded for these start times. There are two time blocks that make up the Open Category. The Morning time block takes place immediately after Age Group, generally between 8:45AM-12:45PM (but fluctuates depending on capacity). The Afternoon time block directly follows the Morning. These heats typically start at 1:00PM and go until the last heat of the day. Racers are assigned a specific start time 10 days prior to race day.
