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. 

The 2020 Trifecta calendar has been extended and will run from November 4, 2019 to November 7, 2021. All races completed in that time will count towards your Trifecta total. After that date it will reset to zero. 

The 2022 Trifecta Calendar year will run from November 8, 2021 to December 31, 2022.

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. Please note, 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. However, the Hurricane Heats and Agoge can be applied towards the Spartan Delta. 

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

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 medal, they 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.

Medals & Wedges From Different Years

The medal wedge you receive will be based on the year in which you run that individual race. For example, if you run a Sprint in 2019 (from November 4 on), that will be the same as the other 2019 medal wedges. If you run the Super and Beast in 2021, those will be the 2021 medal wedges. They may display different years, but they will still fit together to make up the Spartan Trifecta logo. There is no exchanging of wedges between years. 

2x and 3x Trifecta medals will include a pouch which has a medal, lanyard, patch and delta coin.  4x and above is the medal and lanyard only.  For 2019-2021 Trifecta mulit medals they are 2020 medals, there are not providence of outside of the 2020 medal for multi trifecta medals.  If your results on your profile are not matching up to show a multi trifecta make sure to get it corrected before race day as we will not be able to provide at pick up if profile is not matching.  


Trifecta Weekend Medals

For weekends which 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 each 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 at after completion of the beast/ultra , super and sprint in the same weekend.
