Nine events across the world, $225,000 in prize money, distances from 30 km to 100 miles.
Spartan, the world’s leading endurance sports and wellness brand, continues its growth in the trail running market launching season two of the Spartan Trail World Championship. The race series involves nine events in five continents, in outstanding venues, and with top quality standards that will make an unforgettable experience for every trail runner. From perfectly produced events, to a cultural immersion on the countries and towns where the races are held, runners will be able to taste the pure soul of the places visited from start to finish of their adventure.
The Championship features two categories holding separate leaderboards, aiming to reach the widest range of elite runners.
