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. 

PLEASE NOTE: This policy does NOT apply to teams registered for the Age Group Heat. Participants that register for the Age Group category will be assigned a start time based on their AGE GROUP and gender ONLY- regardless of whether that participant is part of a team. Team members are NOT placed together in the Age Group category, unless they are in the same age group range (and gender depending on heat capacity). 

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. 

Please Note: Racers who do not begin the race at their assigned Age Group start time risk disqualification

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.

    Jimmy,
    You can access this site ( http://dev.j-chipusa.com/events.php/events.php) for bid and start times temporarily until the transition to the new site format is complete

    All,
    As you have noticed, with the shift to our new website, a couple of pieces of information are missing in the transition. Currently racer bibs and start times are not available on the website. However, our tech team is correcting this and they will be available, as usual (on the "Race Day" section of the appropriate event page), very soon.

    Hi Brian,

    I see that you wrote us late Monday night. Due to the volume of emails from this weekends events we are a little behind on emails not involving the weekends races. We will answer your ticket soon.

    I do see we have your timing ticket also and the team will be handling that as soon as they can. They need to review the pictures and data for each racer to ensure a fair finish time is posted so it is a time consuming process.

    Hi Anthony. If this is for the race tomorrow unfortunately that heat is sold out and has been for months now and we cannot add anyone to the time for safety reasons. If it is a different event please write us at US@spartan.com with the details so we can best assist.

    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?

    I found the Bib Info tab earlier and was able to find my start time there. This should be corrected on the site so others can find their times too. :)

    Where are the start times? I received an email that said it can be found on the event page 10 days prior to my race. On the event page it says it can be found in the Race Day tab a few days prior to the event. There is not Race Day tab that I can see. This link titled Team Registration and Start Times does not offer any information on exact start times. Where can I find this information?

    Ok Gary. So would it be easier just to have my friend sign up and create a team. I can just transfer that and you can delete my inquiry. Also while I understand races happened this weekend it been close to month since my race at Citifield so I think is reasonable to ask for resolution.

    Hi Aja,

    Do you know if in order to get the team discount we have to pay all at the same time? I got the discounted fee but other people joining the team are asked to pay full price.

    HI Ron,
    Not sure what you're referring to?
    The Breckenridge start times, info, etc. is all up on the website now, as per usual. We had a minor blip a couple of days ago, with the transition over to the new site, but all the usual information is back there for you.
    If you bring up the Breckenridge event, scroll past the pricing tables on the main page and you'll see that it defaults to "race day info" (like parking, location, etc.). There's a second tab for Bib Info (where your start times are) as well as "live updates" if you want to set those up.
    Check it out!

    Hi this Mackenzie,

    I was just wondering that if I my team consists of people under the age of 18, do their parents have to sign something before the race?

    Hi Stacie,
    If the start times are posted for your event, you will find them from the event page. Head over to the event page for your race, scroll past the pricing table and you'll see the "Race Day Info" tab that you mentioned. If your start times are posted for your event, there will be a tab next to race day info that says "Bib Info"... .Bib info is where you bib and start time information will be.
