Each Spartan runs for different reasons. For some, Spartan Race is a high-level sports competition, for others a way to get in shape and for a major part a real way of life. Whatever your motivation, we will always have a category that will match your mood and ensure the best possible experience.
The Spartan Race Categories are:
THE ELITE CATEGORY
Elite athletes compete to win titles, compete against the best, attract potential sponsors and climb to the top of the various Spartan Race Series standings. Elite runners, like the Spartan athletes, are committed to impeccable sportsmanship and strictly adhere to race rules and guidelines. Riders who do not respect these guidelines risk disqualification. If you're wondering why you're running in the elite, it's because you're not one.
CATEGORY BY AGE GROUP (NEW FOR 2018, PREVIOUSLY “COMPETITIVE CATEGORY")
The Age Group Category, formerly called as "Competitive" is a series of starting wave just after the Elite Wave. Age Group riders will follow the same rules and guidelines as Elite riders. The Age Group Categories will be supervised by referees, there will also be a point ranking of the series and podium.
The category age range is:
CATEGORY OPEN (MORNING & AFTERNOON)
This Category is open to everyone! The Spartans of all weekends, beginner athletes, alone or in a team, you will always be welcome here. The Open Category has the same purpose as the Elites or Age Group categories, get out of your comfort zone, test your physical limits and discover the unique experience of crossing the finish line of a Spartan Race. However, it is not because you have entered the Open Category that you do not have the right to overtake yourself and push the pace of the race to the maximum. Regardless of the category in which you will participate, all your races will be counted to obtain the Trifecta or the Spartan Delta.
Become a member of the Spartan TRIFECTA Tribe by finishing one of each Spartan distance: Sprint, Super and Beast, in a calendar year (January 1 – December 31st), anywhere in the world.
*Note: A Spartan Stadium race counts as a Sprint race toward your TRIFECTA.
*Note: Hurricane Heat, Hurricane Heat 12 and Agoge are part of the TRIFECTA ENDURANCE.
