What is the Spartan Trifecta?

The Spartan Trifecta is a badge of honor, earned by pushing your mind, body, and spirit to achieve greatness. To become a member of the Trifecta Tribe, one must complete one of each Spartan distance - Sprint, Super, and Beast. You can earn multiple Trifectas in a single trifecta year, however only one lap per day, per event will count. 


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Trifecta year was extended to run from November 4, 2019 to November 7, 2021. All races completed in that period count towards the 2021 Trifecta total.

The 2022 Trifecta year runs from November 8, 2021 to December 31, 2022. All races completed during this period count towards the 2022 Trifecta total.


A Spartan Stadion race will count as a Sprint towards the Spartan Trifecta. 

A Spartan Ultra race will count as a Beast towards the Spartan Trifecta. Please note, the entire Ultra course must be completed in order for it to count. Only completing half will not count as a Beast towards your Trifecta. Completion of the Ultra will count as 1 (one) Beast towards your Trifecta. 

City Events, Hurricane Heats, Agoge, or Spartan Trail events do NOT count towards the Spartan Trifecta. However, the Hurricane Heats and Agoge can be applied towards the Spartan Delta. 

You can complete the races in any order, the Sprint does not have to be completed first. 

There is nothing special that you will need to do to "claim" a trifecta medal, as you will earn the three pieces of it, as you complete your races during the season. Once you have your third piece, the medals will fit together to complete one big Trifecta medal. If you are earning your 2x, 3x, etc. Trifecta medal, they are available on site at the event. Please complete your race, then see our results tent and/or our announcer booth to be presented with your multi-Trifecta medal. 

Trifecta merchandise (shirts, medal holders, etc.) will be available for sale at the merchandise tent at all events, but no additional merchandise, other than medal pieces, will be provided to Trifecta finishers.

Transition Period & Medals/Wedges

The medal wedge you receive will be based on the year in which you run that individual race. For example, if you run a Sprint in 2019 (during the transition period), that will be the same as the other 2019 medal wedges. If you run the Super and Beast in 2020, those will be the 2020 medal wedges. They may display different years, but they will still fit together to make up the Spartan Trifecta logo. There is no exchanging of wedges between years. 

2x and 3x Trifecta medals will include a pouch which has a medal, lanyard, patch and delta coin.  4x and above is the medal and lanyard only.


Virtual Trifectas do not count towards your overall Trifecta count for any given Trifecta Year.
