The Open category:
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 Age Group 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.
The Age Group Category:
The Age Group category is designed to address the gap between our Open class racers and our Elites. Age Group Racers will be expected to follow the same rules and standards as the Elite racers. These racers compete for glory and bragging rights. As a major component of the rapid evolution of obstacle racing as a sport, Age Group racers will start immediately following the elite heats, taking advantage of a wide open course. Age Group racers commit to sportsmanship, honoring rules and guidelines, and performing at their best.
The Elite Category:
At the far end of the spectrum is the Elite category. These athletes are competing to 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.
