We’re barely through the 2019 Spartan Season and already the talk about what’s to come in 2020, continues to heat up. So far we’ve seen Spartan’s new medal design, finisher shirts, and a more standardized approach to race distances.
If you’re already in the planning stages for your 2020 season, you’re in luck. Spartan has released the 2020 US National Series venues and dates, so get those airline miles and AirBnB bookings ready!
2020 US National Series Changes
Similar to last year, the season kicks off in Jacksonville, FL with the Super on February 22nd, 2020. The second stop will be Seattle (Super) on April 4th as it’s been since 2017. Saraland, Alabama was a one and done and has been removed from the National Series, presumably after issues with “cell coverage” and low attendance numbers.
Montana is part of the National Series again with its first time back since 2016 with a Kalisepell, MT Beast on May 2nd. At the turn we’ve got the newly upgraded Utah Beast on July 18, before finishing … somewhere. While the fifth race isn’t confirmed according to the graphic released, we’re taking a guess at where it will be.

North American Championship Venue Change
West Virginia was the home to the Spartan North American Championship in 2018 and 2019. That moniker will now move west to Lake Tahoe where competitors from the US and Canada will battle for the title of North American Champion on September 26th, 2020.
So if Lake Tahoe is the North American Championship for Spartan, where will the World Championships be?!?
Stay tuned, true believers. Stay tuned.
UPDATE 11/15 5:39am EST: Spartan has released a new graphic updating the schedule which calls out that Jacksonville’s race will be the Sunday Sprint as the first race of the National Series. Montana will be a Super and will also be on Sunday.
