What is the Spartan Ultra?

The Spartan Ultra is a unique race with Ultra-specific obstacles and challenges; the Ultra will no longer be an extension of the Beast event (like the pre-2018 Ultra Beast).  

The Ultra will be geared for true endurance-focused Spartans, with a minimum distance of 50K. Upon completion of this test of will, successful finishers will receive a unique Ultra belt buckle, as well as special Ultra-branded finisher shirt and wedge medal.

The Spartan Ultra will count towards the Spartan Race Trifecta as a Beast. Using an Ultra as the Beast, you would need 1 Sprint/Stadion and 1 Super to complete a Trifecta. Completion of one Ultra will count as one piece of the Trifecta. You must complete the entire course in order for it to count, completing half will not count as a Beast. More information on the Spartan Trifecta can be found here. 

US Spartan Season Pass Holders qualify for 50% off their Ultra registration with the use of their pass.

Specific race information such as course cutoffs will be posted the week of the race in the Race Day Program. 

Please note: Anyone racing in a Spartan Ultra event must be at least 18 years old on race day.
