What is the Spartan Ultra?

The Spartan Ultra is a unique race with Ultra-specific obstacles and challenges; the Ultra will no longer be an extension of the Beast event (like the pre-2018 Ultra Beast).  

The Ultra will be geared for true endurance-focused Spartans, with a minimum distance of 50K. Upon completion of this test of will, successful finishers will receive a unique Ultra belt buckle, as well as a special Ultra-branded finisher shirt and wedge medal.

The Spartan Ultra will count towards the Spartan Race Trifecta as a Beast. Using an Ultra as the Beast, you would need 1 Sprint/Stadion and 1 Super to complete a Trifecta. Completion of one Ultra will count as one piece of the Trifecta. You must complete the entire course in order for it to count, completing half will not count as a Beast. More information on the Spartan Trifecta can be found here. 

Anyone racing an Ultra must be at least 18 years old on race day.
