The Spartan US National Series is the premier competitive amateur obstacle course racing series in the world. It features five epic races across the United States and elevates the heroes of Spartan racing: Age Group OCR athletes.
HOW THE COMPETITION WORKS
The USNS is a points-based competition. Over the course of the series, Age Group Heat competitors will earn points based on their top three finishing positions. If an athlete races more than four USNS races, only their top four finishes will earn points.
At the end of the series, the top-ranked men and women will earn prizes from Spartan and Spartan brand partners.
Competitive Heats are designed for weekend warriors, the Spartans who balance their careers, family, social and other obligations while still fanning the flame of their passion: obstacle racing.
These heats differ from Open Heat races in multiple ways:
1) Earlier heat times.
2) Higher levels of competition.
3) Strict refereeing.
4) A dedicated national race series with prize awards.
5) A community that “gets it”.
