Sprint. Super. Beast
The Trifecta is the ultimate annual challenge — three epic races of increasing difficulty in a single year. Complete it, and you'll not only earn the most-coveted medal in OCR; you'll be fundamentally transformed inside and out.
Why Earn A Trifecta?

To earn the Spartan Trifecta, new and returning athletes must finish three of our signature obstacle races in a single race season, typically a 12 month period.*

Trifecta Races:

  • Spartan Sprint® OR Spartan Stadion® — 5k, 20 obstacles
  • Spartan Super® — 10k, 25 obstacles
  • Spartan Beast® — 21k, 30 obstacles OR Spartan Ultra® — 50k, 60 obstacles

*This year’s Trifecta race season is November 8, 2021 to December 31, 2022

Find Races

At the finish line of each race, every athlete receives a medal, plus a magnetic Trifecta Wedge. Once you complete your third race, your three wedges will snap together to create the most-coveted medal in OCR.

You can also find special, commemorative displays to showcase your unbreakable achievement.


At fan-favorite Trifecta Weekends, some athletes dare complete all three races in one weekend. These adventures take place at destination venues worldwide.

On rare Trifecta Shield Weekends, athletes receive highly collectible, limited edition medals and swag to commemorate their achievement.


A small, but growing, group of Spartans are dedicated to not only finding their limits but shattering them.

These battle-hardened athletes strive to earn more than one Trifecta in the same year, with some earning three, five and even 20. With custom multi-Trifecta medals around their necks, these efforts do not go unnoticed.

Find Races

At every Trifecta World Championship, a special ceremony recognizes those who have added to their “lifetime” Trifecta count.

A wide array of custom awards are given out, but a special honor is bestowed on those celebrating their 50th Trifecta. Their names are eternalized on the Trifecta Wall of Legends in Sparta's city center.
