Race against the best of the best, compete for prize money and put your training to the test! Elite Racers, like all Spartan athletes, commit to flawless sportsmanship and adhere strictly to the race rules and guidelines. The Elite Heat begins at 8:00am on race day.
Are you ready to move beyond the Open Heats but not quite ready for Elite? Prepare for the Competitive Heat, which takes place directly after the Elite Heat and allows you to take advantage of a wide open course while challenging yourself to your limit! Competitive Racers will be expected to follow the same rules and standards as the Elite racers. Burpees at each failed obstacle are mandatory: as a guideline, you’re ready for the Competitive Heat if you’ve finished the open wave multiple times with fewer than 90 Burpees. In the Competitive Heat, you compete for GLORY and Age Group Awards but not prize money; rankings and results are calculated by age group. The Competitive Heat begins at 8:15am on race day.
The Open category is for everyone, period. Weekend warriors, novice athletes, first-time racers, and teams are all welcome here. The Open category offers the same opportunity as the Competitive and Elite categories to get far outside your comfort zone, test your body’s limits, and experience the awesome rush of the finish line. However, there’s no pressure to push your pace. Individuals and teams can register for Open Heats. Open Heats begin at 8:30am and run every 30 minutes.
