Elite, Competitive, and Open Heats

Every Spartan has a chance to race

Getting out of your comfort zone means different things to different people. For some, it means getting back into shape. For others, it means bringing their top-level, maximum-intensity training to the brink of insanity. At Spartan Race, we respect our athletes no matter where they fall on the spectrum. That’s why, starting in March with our Atlanta event, we will continue to drive the evolution of obstacle racing as a sport by introducing the Competitive category.

With three ways to race, you may be asking yourself, which one is right for me? With Spartans like you in mind, we have put together this guide to help you know for sure.

At the far end of the spectrum is 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.
