THE SPARTAN TRIFECTA
The Trifecta is the ultimate annual challenge. Every year, finisher medals come with a special magnetic wedge that fits with others. Those strong enough to collect the wedges from a Sprint, Super and Beast will create a coveted medal, the Trifecta.
Why Earn A Trifecta:
How it Works:
Every 12 months the Trifecta year resets, and new and returning Spartans alike can push themselves to complete all the core Spartan OCR disciplines, from 5K Sprint to half marathon Beast. Rarer Trifectas also exist; Sprint may be replaced with Stadion, and Beast with Ultra.

Commit to the TRIFECTA and push your mind, body, and spirit to achieve the strongest, fastest and most resilient version of yourself.
Around the world you’ll find special weekends where it’s possible to earn a Trifecta in a single weekend. This is a great time to meet people and take on a real challenge together. In 2021, a range of highly collectible medals will be released as part of new Trifecta Shield Weekends at select venues.
Everyone who earns a Trifecta qualifies for the next Trifecta World Championship, held each November in Sparta, Greece. Click here for more info.
A small but growing group of Spartans are dedicated to finding their limits, and beyond. These battle-hardened athletes strive to earn more than one Trifecta, with some earning 3x, 5x, and even 20x in 12 months. Special swag awaits those who take on this feat…
Each year, new inductees are welcomed by a special ceremony at the Trifecta World Championship that recognizes those who have added to their “lifetime” Trifecta count. A huge array of awards are given out, and those who reach 50x and more have their names written down in history on the Trifecta Wall of Fame in the city centre of Sparta.
Trifecta wedges can be displayed with special holders and plates available here.

How do I earn a Trifecta?
To earn a Trifecta, you must finish a Sprint or Stadion, Super, and Beast or Ultra in any order. You may also complete these races anywhere in the world. However, remember that you must finish all three races on within a Trifecta Year. The Trifecta years valid for Sparta 2021 are: Sparta 2019/2020 Trifecta Year (From November 5th 2019 To December 31st 2020) OR Sparta 2020/2021 Trifecta Year (From November 9th 2020 To November 4th 2021) – 1 Trifecta within the same Trifecta Year, Not cumulatively.
Can I earn more than one Trifecta in a year?
Absolutely, in fact it’s what will bring your mental and physical game to the next level. You do not need a Trifecta Pass to earn the Spartan Trifecta, though it’s encouraged as it’s a great way to set a goal and stick to it. You can purchase one here. Another worthy goal is to complete the rarer forms of Trifectas, such as Stadion, Super & Beast or even Stadion, Super, Ultra. There’s special swag for 2x Trifecta earners and onwards, and in 2021 new Trifecta Shield Weekends will award unique medals and other collectables.
How does qualifying for the Trifecta World Championship work?
To earn a spot at the Trifecta World Championship in Sparta, you need to earn a Trifecta first. The qualification period for each Trifecta World Championship is an annual cycle that runs from one event to the next. In other words, to qualify for the 2021 Trifecta World Championship, you must earn a Trifecta from the Monday after the 2020 event to the Friday before the 2021 event. In that way, the qualifying period for the “TWC” differs from the Trifecta year, which is tied to the calendar year. Note that this system is new for the 2020/2021 season.
