Important: because of the Covid19 pandemic spread and since the race calendar was subject to change compared to the original plan, we want to give our racers more chances to complete their Trifecta in 2020! For this reason the Trifecta Year 2020 has been extended to December 31st 2020.
This will also extend your chance to qualify for the Trifecta World Championship event in Sparta 2021 as everyone who has completed a Trifecta in 2020 (new period: Nov 8, 2019 - Dec 31, 2020) or 2021 (Nov 9, 2020 - Nov 5, 2021) is qualified to race at the Spartan Trifecta World Championship 2021.
If you race in the extended time period in November/December your races will count for the trifecta count in 2020 and 2021.

If you register for this event you MUST complete a TRIFECTA by November 3rd 2020. TRIFECTA status will be checked on this date. Anyone signed up for this event who has not completed a TRIFECTA will be removed from Trifecta World Championship ranking WITHOUT a refund.

OPEN, AGE GROUP, and ELITE TRIFECTA racers are welcome. You must be 18 years old on race day to be able to participate in the Trifecta World Championship. This event is meant to celebrate all TRIFECTA Tribe members. Racers will test their grit to earn unique TRIFECTA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP finisher swag.
AGE GROUP and ELITE TRIFECTA racers will be eligible for TRIFECTA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP awards and prizes. Rankings will be based off racers’ cumulative time across all three distances. Sunday’s BEAST race of the Elite category will feature a STAGGERED START: racers’ start times will be determined based on their combined time from the SPRINT and SUPER. The racer with the fastest combined time will start first, the following racers will start based on the time difference between the person ranked ahead of them, and after 15 minutes all remaining racers will be released. [Example: Joe’s combined race time for the SPRINT and SUPER is 2:05:30 and Tom’s time is 2:06:00. Joe will start the BEAST first and Tom will be released 30-seconds later.] All AGE GROUP brackets will have their own start waves for the BEAST. In addition to the title, top ELITE racers will be battling for their share of $50,000 of prize money.
