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 30 mi/ 50km. Upon completion of this 30 mile test of will, successful finishers will receive a unique Ultra belt buckle, as well as special Ultra-branded finisher shirt and wedge medal.

Please note: The Spartan Ultra DOES count toward an official Spartan Race Trifecta (which is comprised of one Sprint, one Super and one Beast or ULTRA). Finishing one lap of an Ultra does not entitle a racer to a Spartan Beast medal. The 2018 Ultra wedge medal can be used to complete an Endurance Delta (Hurricane Heat, Hurricane Heat 12 Hour, Ultra), or to complete any combination of unofficial trifecta variations you create!

For the first time, all Ultra events globally will be qualifiers for Elite and Age Group categories into the Ultra World Championship. Ultra racers will need to meet demanding course cut-off times and there is no roll-down or maximum number of qualifiers. 

Canada Spartan Season Pass Holders qualify for 50% off their Ultra registration with the use of their pass.

Specific race information such as course cutoffs will be posted the week of the race in the Race Day Program. 

Please note: Anyone racing in a Spartan Ultra event must be at least 18 years old on race day.
