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.
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.

Once you finish a Spartan Trail, you won’t leave empty handed. All finishers will receive an exclusive medal, t-shirt, a race weekend at the Spartan festival and the feeling of achievement at the finish line. The top 3 male and female Age Group finishers in every heat will be eligible for plaques and awards.
Think you have what it takes to stand with the top finishers? The top 3 overall male and female finishers at regular season events will be eligible for cash prizes. Trail World Championship events also offer purse prizes for top Ultra Trail (50K+) finishers, and for Trail (>49K) finishers.
You’ve high fived them on the course and felt their encouragement on race day. Now, you can join them and become a bigger part of the Spartan experience. As a Spartan Race Volunteer, you help ensure that every racer and spectator has an unforgettable day at the course. Plus, all volunteers earn a free race upon completing a shift.
