The world’s most elite athletes have conquered Spartan’s top obstacle races, but do they have what it takes to rule the world? The stage is set for the Spartan World Championship in Northern Lake Tahoe, California, the Spartan Trifecta World Championship in Sparta, Greece, or the Spartan Ultra World Championship in Iceland.


Obstacles stand in your way to see if what you want is really worth fighting for. At a Spartan, you will find obstacles designed to test your mental fortitude and physical strength. While we don’t reveal all of our secrets, here is a sampling of some of the obstacles you will encounter on course.

Build A Spartan Team!

Rip your friends off the couch and into adventure. Whether they’re boosting you over a wall or chasing you up the mountain, make sure your crew is with you at the start line. Each race day, the biggest team will receive an award.

Special Race Series

Covering some of the toughest vertical terrain Spartan has to offer, the Spartan Mountain Series will test your upper limits. From the legendary hills of Palmerton, to the steep elevation of Asheville, prepare for unrelenting climbs, descents, and carries that seem just a little bit heavier than normal. These Mountains are an obstacle all on their own. Don't worry though, you'll be pushed even further with signature Spartan obstacles and the toughest competition around. It’s time to climb. Do you have what it takes to reach the top?

From its' very beginning, Spartan has been dedicated to supporting those who motivate us, protect us, serve us - those who achieve more than anyone thinks they can. At Spartan, we believe our military, first responders and all those who put their lives on the line for us every day have shown us how to overcome any obstacle that stands in our way. They live Spartan daily. That's why the Honor Series is such a special event for our community.
