Important Rules for the Regional / National Series:
- For Elite & Age Group Category: you do not have to race all races of the series to enter the overall ranking. All races are counting to the overall ranking, so of course the more races you race, the higher you might rank.
- For Elite Category: you have to race the last race of the series to be eligible for prize money (category Elite). You do not have to finish the race, but you have to start the race.
- For Elite & Age Group Category: Any prices and awards for the Series are only handed out at the final race during the awards ceremony.
- If two racers have the same points at the final ranking of the series, they will be ranked both at the same position. For Awards or prize money this means:
- Two winners: two first place awards. The two first placed racers share the total amount of prize money provided for 1st and 2nd place together. No second placed athlete in the ranking then.
- Same applies for other positions in the same concept.
2019 Spartan World Championship qualifications will be based on the final rankings of the Regional/National Series. The individual series races do not qualify racers for the 2019 World Championship. To find out more about how to qualify for the World Championship please visit the Championship Page.
