$1 Million Dollar Challenge

WANT TO WIN $1 MILLION?

The $1 Million Challenge is back. This time, with a new qualification system. 

You must compete in Elite in all three major Spartan World Championships to be eligible:

 

  1. The World Championship in North Lake Tahoe,
  2. The Trifecta World Championship in Sparta, and
  3. The Ultra World Championship in Sweden.

From there it goes off a point system: Your finishing place in Tahoe and Sparta will be subtracted from the total miles of course you complete in Sweden.

For example: If a racer completed 100 miles in Sweden, placed 1st at Tahoe, and 1st at Sparta they would earn 98 points.
The math: 100(miles)-1(st place)-1(st place)=98.

To win the $1 million:

  • an Elite Male racer must earn 98 points or higher
  • an Elite Female must earn 78 points, or higher
...What if more than one person wins?
There is one prize only, in the event there are multiple winners, the prize will be divided equally among the winners who reach the total points necessary to claim the top prize. 

...But what if NOBODY wins?

If no one wins the $1M prize, we'll be distributing prizes based on the total points earned (using the same point process above):
