2022 Spartan Kids Championships Qualification Guidelines

In this article:

Spartan Kids World Championship

  • Racer age must be 9 yrs old on the day of the event. No exceptions.
  • Ages 9-14 are broken down into 2 age groups: 9-11 and 12-14, which are then broken down by male and female.

  • Age groups are determined by your age at the end (December 31) of the current year.

    • Minimum age requirements (9 to 14) will still be enforced on race day, regardless of the participant's age on December 31st. 
  • 14 yrs old is the maximum Kids racer age. At this time, the racer must choose between continuing in Kids competitive or joining the Adult competitive division. They may not compete in both and doing so may result in a full disqualification.

  • The 2022 qualifying procedure takes into account difficulties in youth athlete travel with multiple qualifying options. To qualify to participate in the event, racers may qualify by:

    • 1 top 3 Podium finish at any Kids competitive heat in the qualifying year.
      (US and participating countries will acknowledge podiums beginning November 20, 2021.)

    • In participating countries, an accumulation of 15 points earned in the top 10 finishes throughout the qualifying year. 2022 points accumulations will begin in January of 2022 for countries actively timing Kids events (kids racers that are running with a timing chip).

      • Points are accumulated in descending order: 1st place= 10 points, 2nd place = 9 points, and so on, through 10th place.
    • Top 10 finish at a Regional Championship event, will be an automatic qualification.
      Countries not yet participating in qualifying competitive events may submit individual qualifying events for review in order to participate and send representation.

    • Additional qualifying capability may be reviewed with special consideration by Spartan at any time.

Regional Championship Qualifications

  • Ages 9-14 are broken down into 2 age groups: 9-11 and 12-14, which are then broken down by male and female.
  • Regional Championships do not require qualification.
