What is the Spartan Trifecta?

The Spartan Trifecta is a badge of honor, earned by pushing your mind, body, and spirit to achieve greatness.

  • To become a member of the Trifecta Tribe, one must complete one of each Spartan distance - Sprint, Super, and Beast.
  • You can earn multiple Trifectas in a single trifecta year, however, only one lap per day, per event will count. 

Trifecta Calendar Year

  • The 2024 Trifecta Calendar year will run from January 1, 2024 to December 31st, 2024
  • The 2023 Trifecta Calendar year will run from January 1, 2023 to December 31st, 2023
  • The 2022 Trifecta Calendar year will run from November 8, 2021 to December 31, 2022

What Counts Towards the Trifecta 

A Spartan Stadion race will count as a Sprint towards the Spartan Trifecta. 

A Spartan Ultra race will count as a Beast towards the Spartan Trifecta. The entire Ultra course must be completed in order for it to count. Only completing half will not count as a Beast towards your Trifecta. Completion of the Ultra will count as 1 Beast towards your Trifecta. 

City Events, Hurricane Heats, Agoge, or Spartan Trail events do NOT count towards the Spartan Trifecta. 

You can complete the races in any order, the Sprint does not have to be completed first. 


Claiming the Trifecta 

There is nothing special that you will need to do to "claim" a trifecta medal, as you will earn the three pieces of it, as you complete your races during the season.

***Once you have your third piece, the medals will fit together to complete one big Trifecta medal.

If you are earning your 2x, 3x, etc. Trifecta medals are available on-site at the event. Please complete your race, then see our results tent and/or our announcer booth to be presented with your multi-Trifecta medal. 

Trifecta merchandise (shirts, medal holders, etc.) will be available for sale at the merchandise tent at all events, but no additional merchandise, other than medal pieces, will be provided to Trifecta finishers.


Trifecta Weekend Medals

For weekends that host all three event types, there will be a trifecta weekend medal.  The trifecta weekend medal is a unique award only to be provided at the race you perform every three events and speciality medals are not available to be picked up or mailed after the race weekend.  Each trifecta weekend will have a trifecta tent which the trifecta weekend medal is to be picked up after completion of the beast/ultra, super and sprint at the same weekend.


Wedge Pieces

The design of the medal wedge you receive will be based on the year in which you run each individual race. For example, if you run a Sprint in 2021 your wedge piece will be the same as the other 2021 medal wedges. However, if you run the Super and Beast in 2021, and a Sprint in 2022 then your wedges will display different years and designs, but they will still fit together to make up the Spartan Trifecta logo. There is no exchanging of wedges between years.
