WHAT’S NEW IN 2020

This year, we’re taking Trail to a whole new level. The schedule is bigger than ever. 50K trails have been added to regular season events. The Spartan Trail Pass gives you unlimited races. And, to top it all off, the Spartan Trail World Championship is here.

Additionally, all Trail racers have a chance claim the title of World Champion. Trail rankings will be determined by a points system. The top finishers at every race — at both regular season and World Championship events — will earn points. The racer with the most points at the end of the season takes the crown.

What hasn’t changed is the core spirit of Spartan Trail: Pure, uninterrupted trail running. No obstacles. No equipment. Just you and the great outdoors.

RUNNERS FOR PUBLIC LANDS

As runners, explorers and global citizens, it’s our job to preserve the environment. So, Spartan has teamed up with Runners for Public Lands (RPL) to support runner advocacy around public lands, climate change, equitable access and sustainability.

RPL collaborates with environmentally-conscious runners across the planet to protect and restore the environment through trail racing and educational events.
