Recurring Event Event Series: Arizona Spartan Race Trifecta Weekend

Arizona Spartan Race Trifecta Weekend

November 20

$96 – $148

Just 30 minutes from downtown Phoenix and nestled between the Gila river and expansive Estrella Mountain Regional Park, Phoenix Raceway is a massive low-banked track that hosts NASCAR weekends and serves as the foundation for this Spartan race weekend. Racers can expect to run along the track and through the trails within the surrounding wildlife areas – this is a relatively fast course, so get into gear for speed come race day!

This event is a Trifecta Weekend, giving racers the ability to complete a Trifecta (Sprint 5K, Super 10K & Beast 21K) in just one weekend and qualify for the 2022 Trifecta World Championship in Sparta, Greece. Buy the Trifecta Pass to save on entry into all 3 races and also receive Spartan+ membership for one year ($85 value), exclusive gear & more. Get the Pass for $289.

All finishers receive a T-shirt, medal and professional photos, and every registration comes with access to the Spartan Account to track your tickets, race results, photos, teams, and challenges.

Spartan Sprint

A 5K that will change your life. The Sprint is the first stop for many in their Spartan journey. It’s also an event that some returning Spartans focus on for years to come for its challenges of speed and obstacle intensity over a shorter distance.

A classic obstacle course racing experience. The Sprint combines relatively easy trail running with 20 obstacles, held on off-road terrain featuring water and mud. Climb walls, crawl under wire, traverse monkey bars, aim a spear throw, and more.

Spartan is a true all-round physical and mental test. Ideal for runners, weightlifters, functional fitness fans, and newbies alike, there are parts of each Sprint that push you in all areas. Focus training on areas you’re not so good at, and if that’s all of them, no problem. Spartan brings together world-class elite athletes, to people just trying to get active.

Spartan Super

If you’ve completed a Spartan Sprint or 10K+ on the road, you’re ready for Super. Here, trail running meets obstacles, with courses set in incredible locations around the world. The Super is the most demanding and fun 10K you’ll complete, anywhere.

Super obstacles are more difficult compared to shorter Spartan events, and with a distance of 10K (6.2 miles), you’ll need a pace strategy. There are Super-specific obstacles to tackle, and elevation gain will often be more demanding.

If you’re new to this sport, one of best preparations is to complete a Spartan Sprint. You’ll get a solid understanding of the demands of obstacle course racing. If you’ve raced before, 10K training plans are a good start. You’ll also want to practice actual heavy carries, and work on overhead grip strength. Spartan has specific training plans to help you.


Spartan Beast

The ultimate Spartan test; a soul crushing half marathon with 30 obstacles. You’ll rarely find a Beast on flat ground, so your legs will burn with brutal ascents and descents. The Beast is notorious around the world for its difficulty.

Only battle hardened Spartans dare take on the Beast, along with a few foolhardy first-timers. Complete it solo (half marathoners take note), or with friends or a formal team so you can push each other through the unavoidable moments of self-doubt.

You’ll need a decent aerobic base, which means you’re okay running and walking for at least three hours. While you don’t have to run 21K in training, regular long runs are a must. Bodyweight exercises like pull-ups and pushups, and weighted functional training, will prepare your body for the onslaught. Test your nutrition and hydration strategy during training runs.
