Completing six Trifectas in one year is no small task. Doing so while navigating the challenges of Cerebral Palsy is a feat in of itself.
But Georgie Ly is doing it. The Queens-born math professor is set to conquer 23 courses across the country in 2019.
Ly embraces the hardship of conquering each course, and pushes through with the support of his fellow Spartans.
“I’m just going to go and go and go,” said Ly, “because I know people will always help me.”
A member of the Spartan Trifecta Tribe finishes three Spartan races distances, either a 3 mile Stadion or Sprint, an 8 mile Super, plus one of either the 13 mile Beast or 30 mile Ultra - in a calendar year (January 1st - December 31st), anywhere in the world. You can earn multiple Trifectas in a single year, however, only one lap per day, per event will count toward this accomplishment.
The entire Ultra course needs to be completed for it to count. Only completing half does not result in a "Beast" towards your Trifecta.
If you run in both the Elite and Open series, still only ONE run through the course, per day, per event will count towards a trifecta.
The Hurricane Heat does not count toward a race Trifecta. The Hurricane Heat has its own Trifecta that can be earned by completing a 4 Hour, 12 Hour, and 24 Hour event.
You can run the races in any order, the Sprint does not need to be the first event. There is nothing special that you need to do to "claim" a trifecta medal, as you will earn the three pieces of it, as you complete your races during the season. All races in the world have the Trifecta Medal wedge piece attached to the Finisher Medal. Once you have your third piece, the three wedges magnetize together to complete one big Trifecta Medal.
There are also Trifecta Weekend all over the world that have unique Trifecta Medals awarded in addition to the Finisher Medals earned at that race.
If you are earning your X2 or higher Multi Trifecta Medal, these are available on site at the event. After you complete your race, head to the Trifecta Tent to be presented with your Multi-Trifecta Medal. (If there is no Trifecta Tent on site at the race, medals will be available in the Results Tent). Trifecta merchandise (shirts, medal holders, etc.) will be available for sale at the merchandise tent at all events, but no additional merchandise, other than medal pieces, will be provided to Trifecta finishers.
Please note: You do not need the Trifecta Pass to earn the Spartan Trifecta.
