RACE TYPES
5K / 20 OBSTACLES

A 5K that will change your life. The Sprint is the first stop for many in their Spartan journey. It’s also an event that some returning Spartans focus on for years to come for its challenges of speed and obstacle intensity over a shorter distance.

A classic obstacle course racing experience. The Sprint combines relatively easy trail running with 20 obstacles, held on off-road terrain featuring water and mud. Climb walls, crawl under wire, traverse monkey bars, aim a spear throw, and more.

5K / 20 OBSTACLES

Spartan City takes place in major metropolitan centers, taking in great sights that are easy to get to. This is an ideal race for first-timers and returning Spartans looking to test their top speed over dirt-free, urban terrain.

The 5K, 20 obstacle Stadion is fast, intense, and all about camaraderie. Drawing on functional fitness training, it’s a true test of speed, strength and willpower. Stadion is perfect for beginners and experts alike.

5K / 20 OBSTACLES

Spartan City takes place in major metropolitan centers, taking in great sights that are easy to get to. This is an ideal race for first-timers and returning Spartans looking to test their top speed over dirt-free, urban terrain.

10K / 25 OBSTACLES

If you’ve completed a Spartan Sprint or 10K+ on the road, you’re ready for Super. Here, trail running meets obstacles, with courses set in incredible locations around the world. The Super is the most demanding and fun 10K you’ll complete, anywhere.

Super obstacles are more difficult compared to shorter Spartan events, and with a distance of 10K (6.2 miles), you’ll need a pace strategy. There are Super-specific obstacles to tackle, and elevation gain will often be more demanding.

21K / 30 OBSTACLES

The ultimate Spartan test; a soul crushing half marathon with 30 obstacles. You’ll rarely find a Beast on flat ground, so your legs will burn with brutal ascents and descents. The Beast is notorious around the world for its difficulty.

Only battle hardened Spartans dare take on the Beast, along with a few foolhardy first-timers. Complete it solo (half marathoners take note), or with friends or a formal team so you can push each other through the unavoidable moments of self-doubt.

50K/60 OBSTACLES

With foundations in traditional ultrarunning, the Spartan Ultra merges the sport of obstacle course racing along with endurance running. This 50K course, with 60 signature obstacles is a truly unique and brutal challenge.

The Ultra almost always features formidable elevation gain, darkness, extreme weather, and unexpected challenges. Ultra events are a great place to meet equally crazy people.

3 RACES, 1 YEAR

The Trifecta is the ultimate annual challenge. Every year, finisher medals come with a special magnetic wedge that fits with others. Those strong enough to collect the wedges from a Sprint, Super and Beast will create a coveted medal, the Trifecta.

Every year new and returning Spartans alike can push themselves to complete all the core Spartan OCR disciplines, from 5K Sprint to half marathon Beast. Rarer Trifectas also exist; Sprint may be replaced with Stadion, and Beast with Ultra.

10K TO 100MI

Classic trail running, no obstacles, many distances. Each race takes place on beautiful, rugged trails around the world. Spartan also hosts the Spartan Trail World Championship series, with some of trail running’s most iconic events and athletes.

Spartan brings trail running to more people, with races as short as 10K, to trail Half Marathons, 50K and 100K, and even 100 milers. Experience big name races such as Patagonia Run and Lavaredo Ultra Trail.
