Race Types


5K/20 Obstacles. 

The Stadion was an ancient Greek running event and a historic, original Olympic Games. It got its name from the storied stadium it took place in. Now, we’re letting you compete in the legendary stadiums of today and add to their history. But unlike in Ancient Greece, all levels are encouraged to take part and enjoy themselves. No matter your level set your own personal record and etch a new chapter in your own history book.


5K/20 Obstacles

The Sprint may be our shortest-distance race, but it’s still a favourite amongst both new and returning racers. It’s the perfect distance for those looking to start their Spartan journey. The Sprint also allows returning racers a manageable distance to see how far they can push themselves. Delivering 20 obstacles over 5K, you’ll never run the same race twice. Once you complete the sprint you are 1/3 on your Spartan TRIFECTA: The ultimate Spartan achievement. 


10K/25 Obstacles

There’s nothing mediocre about this middle-distance race. The Spartan Super offers the ideal blend between distance and speed. Offering racers a true athletic test. If you consider yourself a more seasoned athlete determined to push beyond excuses, you just might have the mettle for a Spartan Super. Serving up 25 obstacles and 10K of rugged terrain, the Spartan Super spares no one. Developed as the second race in the Spartan Trifecta, the Super is where you prove to yourself you’ve got everything it takes to face the Beast.


21K/30 Obstacles

If you’re looking to unleash your inner beast and go to places you never imagined, the Spartan Beast is perfect for you. With a half marathon and 30 obstacles between you and the finish line, the Spartan Beast will test everything you’re made of your strength, your endurance, and your resolve. The unpredictable terrain and Spartan Obstacles are masterfully designed to push you deep into your discomfort zone, and well past those self-imposed obstacles you once considered your limits. Beast mode: on.


50K/60 Obstacles

The Ultra is the first race of its kind to bring the best of OCR and ultra-endurance sports together. If you’re a traditional ultra-endurance sports fan, you will love the Ultra.

The Spartan Ultra will count towards the Spartan Race Trifecta as a Beast. Using an Ultra as the Beast, you would need 1 Sprint/Stadion and 1 Super to complete a Trifecta. Completion of one Ultra will count as one piece of the Trifecta. You must complete the entire course in order for it to count, completing half will not count as a Beast.


10K to 100MI, no obstacles

Spartan Trail is a no-obstacles foot race through rugged wilderness, overseen by legendary race directors from the world of trail running. Please note this event is not valid for the Trifecta.
