All Elite heat winners will be awarded a Trophy. The trophy will be presented to the overall top 3 Elite racers in each gender as well as the top 3 in each gender of our Masters Elite heat (40+ years old on race day). Racers MUST be present at the time of the award ceremony to receive their trophy. No awards will be given or mailed out after the fact. Many of our events will also have prize money awarded for the Elite heat. This check will be mailed out to the racers within 90 days of the event.
The Minimum prize amounts for the Elite heat winners are $500 for 1st, $200 for 2nd, and $100 for 3rd for the overall winners per gender.
To the Masters Elite group, the minimum prizes are $200 for 1st, $150 for 2nd, and $100 for 3rd for each gender. (Masters are consider any racer 40 years or older as of race day).
We will occasionally have sponsored events where the prize money may be higher. The athlete guide will indicate this information and will be posted 10 days prior to the race on the event page.
Our NBC events will award $3000 for 1st, $1200 for 2nd, and $800 for 3rd for the overall winners only.
The World Championship will also offer a higher prize pool which will be announced closer to race day.
Racers earning any prize money also agree to wear a Spartan Branded finisher shirt or other shirt of Spartan’s choosing for any award ceremony and promotional photos. Failure to do so will result in forfeiture of prize money.
