2017 Competitive Racer: Point Series and Rankings

Our Spartan Competitive Point Series assigns rankings (totally separate from any Trifecta status) to some of our most competitive Spartans in the country. 

It will run from January 1st 2017 till December 31st 2017.  

In order for your results to be properly tabulated into rankings for any of our Spartan Point Series, you will need to "claim" all your results through Athlinks and make sure all your relevant races are grouped under one Athlinks profile. You can find out how to do that here, as well as fix common Athlinks profile problems. 

Here's the specifics of how you earn points:

Spartan Race Competitive Point Series:

(For Open points please visit Spartan Open Point Series and Ranking
For Elite points please visit Spartan Elite Point Series and Ranking)

Base Points earned are weighted based on course distance:

Sprint: 96% points (288 total to first place male/female).

Super: 98% points (294 total to first place male/female).

Beast: 100% points (300 total to first place male/female).

 

How is it Calculated?

Points are calculated based on a % of best finish time for overall male and overall female (for example, overall male's time / your time x 100 points) AND based on a % of best finish time for age division (overall age div time / your time x 200 points).

Example: The overall male finisher in a Spartan Beast wins 100 points for gender overall win + 200 points for age division win for a total of 300 points. Your points would be Gender winner time / Your Time X 100 points + Age div winner time / your time x 200 points.

What else you need to know:

  • To qualify as Competitive you must race in the designated Competitive heat. If you race in the other waves for some of your events, points will not be combined with your Competitive points.  
  • Only your top 5 best races within the Continental US earn points.
  • If you are late to your heat and start after the last competitive heat starts you will not earn competitive points, at the race directors discretion. 
  • Stadium and non stadium events will be ranked separately.
