The World Championship Returns to Lake Tahoe in 2017

The Spartan Race World Championship is the preeminent event of the obstacle racing season. This Championship Beast race takes place on September 30, 2017, and is hosted at one of the most challenging courses in the world, Squaw Valley at Lake Tahoe. Every racer that reaches the start line has earned the right to compete. Competitive and open class racers are still able to run the course, but to be eligible to compete in the World Championship Prize Money Elite heat, racers must earn a coin.

How to Earn a Coin:

US & Canada: Top 5 male and female athletes in all Elite heats from January 1 – September 24, 2017. If top 5 finishers have already qualified, a roll down to the next applicable racer will take place.

Races Outside of the US & Canada: Top 10 male and female athletes in all Elite heats from January 1 – September 24, 2017 (no roll down).

Spartan is comprised of World Class Athletes. One thing that separates Spartan Inc. from all other mud runs, is the fact that we time our racers. The company is all about self-improvement, but that doesn't mean we don't value winning. Displayed here are the World Rankings for Spartan Race.


After each Reebok Spartan Race you will be given a point score that is calculated based on your performance against the winner’s time in your gender and age group* placement. Your top-5 scores within a calendar year are then added to the various Spartan Point Series: World Series, US National Series, US Regional Series, etc. under your respective racing category (Elite, Competitive, Open).

*Age group placement is used for calculating points only for Competitive and Open category. Elites only use overall gender placement.

In order for your results to be properly tabulated into rankings for our Spartan Point Series, you will need to "claim" all your results through Athlinks and make sure all your relevant races are grouped under one Athlinks profile. You can find out how to do that here, as well as fix common Athlinks profile problems.
