The Spartan Race Categories :

Each Spartan runs for different reasons. For some, Spartan Race is a high-level sports competition, for others a way to get in shape and for a major part a real way of life. Whatever your motivation, we will always have a category that will match your mood and ensure the best possible experience.

THE ELITE CATEGORY :

Elite athletes compete to win titles, compete against the best, attract potential sponsors and climb to the top of the various Spartan Race Series standings. Elite runners, like the Spartan athletes, are committed to impeccable sportsmanship and strictly adhere to race rules and guidelines. Riders who do not respect these guidelines risk disqualification. If you’re wondering why you’re running in the elite, it’s because you’re not one.
