Team Registration and Start Times

The only way to ensure that you will start at the exact same time as your friends is to create a Team. You can create a team during the registration process for your friends to join (or join your friend's team). 

Any racers that are registered as part of the same team on the SAME DAY in the SAME TIME BLOCK, will be moved to a common team start time when start times and bib numbers are assigned (Start times will be posted 10 days prior to the event). Racers that are registered for Sunday will not be moved to Saturday with a team, or vice versa. 

For example, if a team has members registered for BOTH Morning and Afternoon Time Blocks, all Morning Time Block team members will be moved together within the Morning Time Block, and all Afternoon Time Block team members will be grouped together within the Afternoon Time Block. 

Team start times are NOT determined by the captain's preferred time. Spartan Race does reserve the right to adjust your start time (within the same time block - Morning or Afternoon), despite your "preferred" start times, based on team size and space availability. 

Racers that are registered for Elite, Age Group, or Morning start times will NOT be moved to the Afternoon team time. We assume that racers who have paid extra for these heat times would like to remain in them. Elite, Age Group, and Morning racers will still count as part of your team, but will not be moved out of their registered time blocks. If you are registered for the Elite, Age Group, or Morning Time Block and request to be moved to an Afternoon start time, no refund will be provided for the price difference. Whether or not this request is able to be accommodated is dependent on your desired heat's availability.

Racers that are registered for Afternoon heats will not be moved into teams signed up for Elite, Age Group, or Morning start times, unless they pay the difference in price. This is also dependent on the desired heat's availability.

For a complete explanation of Elite, Age Group, Morning, and Afternoon Time Blocks for our events, please see the following article:  Elite, Age Group, Morning, and Afternoon Time Blocks

Any racer who has already registered but wishes to join a team or change teams must do so at least 21 days prior to the race, to allow time for processing. After your registration is complete, you cannot make team changes within 21 days of race day.

    I registered for a race months ago. After talking to some friends that are interested I now want to make a team and cannot find where to go. Where do I go to make a team?

    My friends and I registered for the elite heat but as a team. Does that mean individuals elite men start before us or does it not matter and all elite get released at the same time? If it does mean individuals get released first, is it possible to dissolve a team to get the individual start time?

    Did anyone hear back from the company? I have a similar situation where I'd registered as an individual racer but now my friends would like to form a team and race together. Please advise.

    What answer keeps escaping me is how the teams are scored? Is it cumulative time?

    If that is so, can team members enter into the elite heat and also other teams members in the open, then combining the times?

    I hope I was distinct in my question.
    Thanks,

    Ok. I clicked on my name in the top right and under activities you can submit a request. That's where I changed to a team. She did it for me.

    Hi Duane,
    A Team for Registration purposes (to make sure you run at the same time) is 2+ people. However, to be included in team rankings against other teams, etc. you would need to have a "full" team of 4+ people.

    I have a good amount of people on my team and all paid for the registrations. I would like them to all run at the same time. Morning preferred. What can we do to arrange this? Suicide Boxers is the team name. I know its getting close to the race. would like to make changes if necessary.
