Have you watched the replay of the Spartan World Championship?
After 16 National Series and 5 global championships, it came down to the World Championship in Lake Tahoe! Congratulations to all the Spartans worldwide who joined us. AROO!
Tahoe was tough. Spartans are tougher. 💪
Our most diverse World Championship yet and we have all of YOU to thank for that. Keep spreading the message of what it means to #livespartan. 💪 AROO!
I don't know what a Trifecta is in Spartan
The Spartan Trifecta World Championship is one month away! Who is headed to Sparta, Greece for this epic event?
A member of the Spartan Trifecta Tribe finishes one of each Spartan distance - Sprint, Super and Beast (or Ultra) - in a calendar year (January 1st - December 31st), anywhere in the world. You can earn multiple Trifectas in a single year, however only one lap per day, per event will count toward this accomplishment. All athletes trifecta status resets to 0 come January 1, as it is the calendar year. (If you run in both the Elite and Open series, still only ONE run through the course, per day, per event will count towards a trifecta.) The Hurricane Heat does not count toward a Trifecta. Stadion events do count as a "Sprint" towards the Trifecta. The entire Ultra course needs to be completed for it to count. Only completing half does not result in a "Beast" towards your Trifecta.

Most of us are just avoiding discomfort all together. So I understand how hard it is when it’s time to do something uncomfortable. Healthy habits take time to develop, but are worth it and will change your life forever. Not only will these habits increase your fitness- but your relationships, school and work will also get better. - If you are having a hard time, start by putting something BIG on the calendar to hold yourself accountable to, but start small and intentional with your habits. Everything get’s better when we make ourselves uncomfortable. Are you ready to put in the work? 💪🏼 -Joe De Sena

What is Spartan? How did it come about? Here's some background on the origins of Spartan. It all started in the Green Mountains of Vermont when Spartan founder, Joe De Sena, became increasingly aware that humans are missing a critical component in the modern world. As we took steps forward technologically, holistic health took a step backward. Life is getting “easier”, but as a result, people are becoming overweight, depressed, lonely and less self-sufficient. Inspired by the warrior society of ancient Sparta, he set out to create a community of Spartans who push and inspire each other. Our Spartan obstacle courses seek to manufacture adversity, which then trains your body and mind to overcome obstacles on the course and in your everyday lives. Spartans develop a resilient spirit, a capable body and mind, all supported and driven by an incredible community. After our first obstacle course race in 2010, Spartan has grown to 250+ annual events across 42+ countries.
Spartan is a rapidly growing tribe. Over 8 million people have crossed a Spartan finish line and each year that number grows. Our mission is to transform 100 million lives and we are well on our way. Spartan is on the road to becoming an Olympic sport, which we are particularly passionate about as both Spartan warriors, Spartan mindset, and Olympics were born out of Ancient Greece. In our biased opinion, we think obstacle course racing is the true test of athleticism as it requires full body strength, mental focus, endurance and grit. The strength of the Spartan tribe lies in the sheer number, diversity, and principles of our members. Spartans share a mindset and the willpower to push further. Some people are at the beginning of their fitness journey and some are elite athletes, but both are equally Spartans. This resilient, friendly, motivating community is extremely inclusive and welcomes all.
Two spots across the globe will be buzzing with Spartans this weekend! We are conquering courses in Spain and Brazil!

Big Results Require Big Ambitions | 2018 Race to $1 Million
For nearly a decade, the world's greatest athletes have gathered together for obstacle course racing's world championships, with the single goal of being crowned a champion. In 2018, determined to raise awareness for the sport and its racers, Spartan founder and CEO Joe De Sena unleashed a challenge that many deemed impossible: win the Spartan World Championship in Tahoe, the Trifecta Championships in Greece, and the 100 Mile Ultra Championships in Iceland and walk away with a one million dollar purse, the largest in obstacle racing history.
