Spartan Race (OCR) Transfer Process

Special Considerations

If you are attempting to transfer your 2024 OCR registration to a 2024 Trail registration, please contact for help. The same transfer fees will apply*. 


  • 30 Days To Transfer Your Registration: You have up to 30 days after your originally scheduled race to transfer to a new event. 
  • The option to defer will be taken offline WEDNESDAY prior to the event as all of the bibs for the race weekend need to be prepared. It will come back online by Wednesday after the event once we are able to verify the bibs that have not been used.
  • Hurricane Heat events can be transferred up until the MONDAY prior to the event. 
  • Kid's events can be deferred up to the Wednesday night prior to the event. 


  • To transfer your race, there will be a $35 transfer fee (not applicable for spectator passes or kid's races).
  • When you transfer your registration to a new event, a credit will be applied to the retail value of your ticket (at the time of purchase), including the add-on fees. When transferring, you will be responsible for any difference in price between the new race entry fee and your credit. 
    • If transferring to another person, the new racer will be responsible for any difference in price as well as processing and add-on fees when registering for an event using your Transfer code. 
    • When you transfer out of an event, this does not guarantee that your exact time slot will be made available for other Spartans to register.  
  • Total - Upon checking out, the charges reflected will include the credit from your original price applied against the total of the new race entry fee. The remaining fees will include any remaining balance from your credit, the $35 transfer fee, the processing fees, and any applicable taxes. 
  • You will not be able to combine a transfer with any other coupons, offers, passes, or vouchers. 
  • The transfer credit is valid for single use on one registration. Any deferment credit remaining after you sign up for the new event will be forfeited. It cannot be used for future events or merchandise.  
  • Due to the unique nature of the Agoge, we are unable to offer a refund or future race credit under any circumstance.
  • At this time, you can only transfer your race to another Spartan event within the US.
