$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

 

...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):
