The Beast will test not only your endurance, perseverance and grit, but also your mind. The 21 kilometer Beast packs 40+ Signature Spartan Obstacles and your final hurdle on the #RoadToTrifecta. It won’t be easy, but there is no better feeling than the Spartan Medal around your neck after you fly across the finish line. The Spartan Sprint is our shortest course. It is perfect for athletes of all levels; from Spartan first timers to seasoned racers. The 6 Kilometer Sprint may be our shortest distance but it packs 22+ exhilarating signature Spartan Obstacles. Both races are open to racers aged 14 and above.
Starting in November for Bintan Reebok Spartan Race, racers will be able to sign up for not only Elite and Open heats but a third additional category, the Competitive Heat. The competitive heat will serve as a middle ground between the Elite field and the Open heat and help bridge the gap for many age group racers and competitive but not elite racers.
The Competitive category, our newest option is designed to address the gap between our Open class racers and our Elites. Competitive Racers will be expected to follow the same rules and standards as the Elite racers. These racers compete for glory and bragging rights, and points towards a World Championship Entry
As a major component of the rapid evolution of obstacle racing as a sport, Competitive racers will start immediately following the elite waves, taking advantage of a wide open course while competing for points in our new Regional Point Series. Competitive racers commit to sportsmanship, honoring rules and guidelines, and performing at their best.
In addition, racers in the Competitive category will be able to track their results throughout the race season to see how they stack up against their peers.
Each Sprint racer that completes the race will receive a coveted official Spartan Race Finisher T-shirt and Spartan medal after crossing the finish line.
A trophy and cash prizes will also be awarded to the winners of the Spartan Sprint Elite, Spartan Elite Sprint and Sprint Elite Masters and Sprint Elite Masters categories. (See below for more details on categories and prizes)
Starting from November race, prizes for the Masters’ division will only be awarded to racers participating in the Elite Heats.
The Biggest team will also walk away with a coveted Spartan trophy, and enjoy their own branded tent on Race Day (more details below).
Spartan Race is the world's best obstacle course race, with over 240 races in 25 countries around the world this year. Spartan Race is not your everyday running race - expect to run, climb, push, pull, throw and crawl through walls, hills, trees, mud, barbed wire and other challenging but fun obstacles.
Please make sure to select same "Time Block" to run with your friends or team members together. The best way to ensure that you are starting at the exact same start time as your friends is to create a Team during registration (or have your friends Join your team!). Any racers that are registered as part of a team, on the SAME DAY in the SAME TIME BLOCK (Elite vs. Competitive vs. Morning vs. Afternoon), will be moved to the common team start time in each block when start times are assigned (about 10 days prior to the event). Team times are NOT determined by the captains start time. Team members will be grouped together within each block (Elite, Competitive, Morning OR Afternoon), based on the preferred time that the majority of team members in that block choose. Please refer to that It can be adjusted arbitrarily. Getting all your friends registered and lined up together on race day can be tricky.

There’s no dress code, but you’ll be running in mud and water, climbing hills and mountains, under barbed wire and jumping fire. Advice from experience: Try not to wear anything cotton. It will absorb water and can cause skin chafing. New shoes on race day are NOT recommended.
Unexpected things come up in life. We understand that so we try our best to accommodate date and/or time transfers, whenever possible. For more information on how to change your:
