  • Regional Championship - Top 20 Finish in the Pro Championship heat at any 2024 National Series race

*Excludes Trifecta World Championships and Ultra World Championships; see specific qualifying criteria for these unique events, below.

Qualifying for the Trifecta World Championship:

All competitive racers (Pro and Age Group) must complete at least 1 Trifecta in 2023 or 2024. 

Competitive Racers can register for the event prior to earning their Trifecta, but must complete it prior to October 30th, 2024. Competitive racers signed up for this event who have not completed a TRIFECTA will be moved to an available Open Category heat WITHOUT a refund on November 1st, 2024. By committing to Pro or Age Group categories at this event, you are committing to completing TRIFECTA prior to the event. 

(NEW) Open Category racers do NOT need to qualify for this event. All are welcome, whether you have completed a trifecta, or are just looking to race in beautiful Sparta, Greece! 

Qualifying for the Ultra World Championships:

For 2024 we have simplified the qualification process for the Ultra World Championship:

  • For the PRO Championship heat*, racers must have finished on the Top 20 (Elite category in 2023 or Competitive category in 2024) at a Spartan Ultra event
  • For Age Group Championship categories, there is no qualification needed but a limit of 500 spots are available
  • A priority invitation has been sent to all 2023 Ultra finishers and World’s Toughest Mudder Finishers (7 laps / 35 miles minimum) so they can secure their spot in the PRO Championship and Age Group Championship heats for the 2024 UWC. Other athletes are free to register in the remaining slots

*For PRO Championship heats, athletes can register without needing a qualification code to access  this category. However, a control of the list of qualified  athletes will be done prior to the event and all NON qualified athletes will be moved to the Age Group Championship heats
