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.
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.
We're not going to lie, you'll have to earn this stuff. No participation medals here. No excuses. There's an 8-mile obstacle course race between you and that finish line. You're going to have to give us your best. When you cross that finish line though, we're going to reward you with high fives, athletic recovery fuel, and some great finisher SWAG. You’ll get a Spartan Super finisher athletic shirt, a Super lanyard and medal, a TRIFECTA Wedge (bringing you one step closer to your TRIFECTA medal), free professional photos (available post race), race performance statistics and unlimited bragging rights.
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:
