Spartan Race: Super & Sprint Race April 14 – April 15, 2018Add To Itinerary
Every Spartan races for different reasons. For some, it means competing at the highest athletic level, for others it’s a way to get back into shape, others like the social aspect. Regardless of your motivations, we have race category options to ensure you have the best experience possible.
The Elite Category
These athletes are competing to win prize money, test themselves against the best of the best, attract potential sponsors, and rise to the top of the Spartan Race Point Series.
Elite Racers, like all Spartan athletes, commit to flawless sportsmanship and adhere strictly to the race rules and guidelines. Racers who fail to follow these guidelines risk disqualification.
If you have to ask yourself if you are elite, you probably aren’t.
The Competitive Category
Competitive Racers will be expected to follow the same rules and standards as the Elite racers. These racers compete for glory and bragging rights, not money.
As a major component of the rapid evolution of obstacle racing as a sport, Competitive racers will start immediately following the elite waves, taking advantage of a wide open course while competing for points in our new Regional Point Series. Competitive racers commit to sportsmanship, honoring rules and guidelines, and performing at their best.
In addition, racers in the Competitive category will be able to track their results throughout the race season to see how they stack up against their peers. At the end of the year, age group points winners will be crowned in each of the following regions: North, South, Central, and West.
The Open category is for everyone, period. Weekend warriors, novice athletes, first-time racers, and teams are all welcome here. The Open category offers the same opportunity as the Competitive and Elite categories to get far outside your comfort zone, test your body’s limits, and experience the awesome rush of the finish line. However, there’s no pressure to push your pace.
Regardless of which category you race in, all finishes will count toward the completion of a TRIFECTA or Spartan DELTA.
