History of qualification for Spartan Race Championships

January 2, 2019

 

History of qualification for Spartan Race:

 

2015, 2016, 2017 – Years of the coin holders.

 

Elite only qualification needed.

 
Every race 10 will gain qualification, 5 men 5 women will respectfully. “trickle down” or “roll down” to the top 5 in the elite race that have not qualified yet at any race is how the 5 will be chosen and receive a coin.

 

2018 - Age Group, North American Championship, the bar raised

Age group introduced at all races, as well as application for a team format where you could qualify for a team competition in Tahoe with a good performance at the Utah race (last race of the USNS) additionally it was stated there would not be coins, then there were coins for elite, then there was question on roll down for age and elite and changing roll down for Age group. This is what ended up happening.

 

North American Championship introduced with qualification:

 

1. Elite – top 10 any race (no roll down)
2. Age Group – any race top of age group (see age group break down) (no roll down)
