With December upon us, and only ~3 weeks left in 2016, it's time to start planning for next year!
Luckily, Spartan has started listing their races really early - they've already got in the neighborhood of 75 races confirmed, listed, and ready to be registered for for 2017!
Spartan continues to be my favorite race series for the brand new beginner all the way through the professional because of how they innovate and lead. Next year is already proving to be no different, adding more military runs, stadium runs, championship series, and more. Additionally, crazy Joe is promising more new obstacles (and new course layouts).
One of the BEST things Spartan is doing next year (3 things, actually) is the race passes. Starting right now, you can register for any of their 3 season passes:The Tri-fecta season pass, which gives you 3 race codes + some other goodies for $299. To put this in perspective, the last tri-fecta I ran cost $431.
The Open-season pass, which is UNLIMITED open heat races for $649.
The Elite Season pass, which is unlimited races valid for All heats for $799.
The tri-fecta season pass is a no-brainer for Anyone going to race the trifecta. As a matter of fact, it's actually good for any three races, so you could run 3 beasts for $299 if you want to (which would be a savings of close to $250).
Also, of course, one of the things I really like that Spartan does is the proverbial carrot-on-a-stick approach to their medals, constantly innovating their tiers and I really like how they now provide all new medals each year. The coolest medal in my collection, currently, is last year's military base race medals. That said.... check out what's coming - then go buy your tri-fecta pass!
