How do I sign up with my new pass?
Please Note: If you intend to sign up someone else for a race so that you can all race together, your Season Pass and personal details will be automatically applied to the first registration. Please register yourself FIRST using your Season Pass and proceed to register your friends and family separately (in a new transaction).
- Find an event on our website
- Click on the Register button at the top of the event page you choose
- When prompted, log in to your Spartan Account, using the SAME email address you used to purchase your pass (this is important)
- Once you select your preferred start time, you will immediately see your registration discounted 100%, leaving you to pay the racer add-on fees
- If you do not immediately see this discount, please contact our Customer Service team for assistance before proceeding
How do I use my benefits?
Season Pass Membership benefits are easy to use!
- Race registration benefits can be used immediately upon purchase for open 2024 events, as noted above (How do I sign up with my new pass?)
Free Spectator Pass can be used for one spectator to enter the festival area per event

- The pass will be under your name (the pass holder)
- You do not need to pre-register your spectator
Promotional clothing items will be able to be claimed in Fall/Winter 2023 - more info coming soon!
- Exclusive Season Pass Gear will be available on a first come first serve basis
Spartan+ Membership or Membership Discount information will be sent to you after you register for your 2024 Season Pass. You will need to take action to claim this membership, following the instructions in your confirmation email.
Multi-lap discounts can be claimed on-site only
- Please see our registration tent on-site to register for additional laps
- Additional laps are subject to space availability and at the discretion of the registration staff

Can I share my pass with a friend if I am not attending an event?
No. The pass is only valid for the person it is registered to. If your pass is used to register someone else, their order will be canceled. If it is caught after the event, they will be DQ'ed and their results will be removed from the event. Your pass will also be revoked with no refunds given. There is a zero-tolerance policy on Season Pass abuse. No excuses, no exceptions.
Can I use it on Hurricane Heats?
The 2024 Season Pass does not include Hurricane Heats.
The 2024 ULTRA Season Pass does include 4 hour Hurricane Heats, only.
Can I use it for the Trail Series events?
The 2024 Season Pass does not include any Trail events.
The 2024 ULTRA Season Pass does include all US & Canada Trail events.
What else do I need to know?
Passes do not guarantee your entry into a sold-out heat.
You must register early to guarantee your spot!
Your pass is valid for one chip-timed entry per day, per event
For pass holders that would like to run an additional timed lap, there will be an additional discounted on-site charge for a new timing chip, bib packet, finisher medal, and shirt
Your Season Pass is unique to you and can not be shared; Season passes are non-transferable once purchased
The Spartan Season Pass guarantees entry to every event during the life of your pass
- It does NOT guarantee entry into a specific heat
- If an event is completely sold out we will accommodate you in the afternoon session
- The registration team will give priority to Season Pass Membership holders when adjusting heat assignments, or accepting last-minute registrations, but requests will still be subject to space limitations
- If you register for an event using your Season Pass and then cannot attend you will NOT be refunded for the add-on fees
Registrations completed with your Season Pass cannot be transferred to future events or to other racers
- Transfers require a $35 transfer fee, so it is more practical (and cost effective) for Season Pass holders to use their pass to register for a new race (and pay just the event related fees - approximately $26) than request a transfer from one event to another
- Specialty races such as the Charity races, or other possible special events including ones put on by Spartan's Partners may not be included or may be included at a reduced rate
- The pass cannot be put on hold in the case of injury, moving, or any other reason
- We are not able to credit current or past registrations toward the cost of a pass
- We are not able to refund current registrations if you buy a pass after signing up for an event
- The pass is non-refundable and non-transferable
- If you are looking to upgrade your registration to a new start time (Open to Age Group, etc.) please contact email@example.com for help. You will not be able to self-serve this upgrade, if your registration was purchased with a Season Pass.
