A member of the Spartan Trifecta Tribe finishes one of each Spartan distance - Sprint, Super and Beast (or Ultra) - in a calendar year (January 1st - December 31st), anywhere in the world. You can earn multiple Trifectas in a single year, however only one lap per day, per event will count toward this accomplishment. All athletes trifecta status resets to 0 come January 1, as it is the calendar year.
(If you run in both the Elite and Open series, still only ONE run through the course, per day, per event will count towards a trifecta.)
The Hurricane Heat does not count toward a Trifecta.
Stadion events do count as a "Sprint" towards the Trifecta.
The entire Ultra course needs to be completed for it to count. Only completing half does not result in a "Beast" towards your Trifecta.
You can run the races in any order, the Sprint does not need to be the first event.
There is nothing special that you will need to do to "claim" a trifecta medal, as you will earn the three pieces of it, as you complete your races during the season. Once you have your third piece, the medals will fit together to complete one big Trifecta medal. If you are earning your 2x, 3x, etc. Trifecta medal, they are available on site at the event. Please complete your race, then see our results tent and/or our announcer booth to be presented with your multi-Trifecta medal. All races must be done in the same calendar year as trifecta status resets to 0 every January 1 for all athletes.
Trifecta merchandise (shirts, medal holders, etc.) will be available for sale at the merchandise tent at all events, but no additional merchandise, other than medal pieces, will be provided to Trifecta finishers.
Please note: Starting in 2015 all races in the world will award the Trifecta medal pieces. There are no single trifecta medals for any country.
*You do not need the trifecta pass to earn the Spartan Trifecta.
