We are getting our first look at what may turn out to be the 2018 US Spartan Championship Series.
In 2016, Spartan rolled out this new series to much success. It was a big change for Spartan, as previously, top racers had over 5o races a year to choose from for various bragging rights and paydays. There was no true beginning or end of any sort of “race season”. Now the elite could focus on this series, along with the traditional end of year Championship races put on by various OCR companies.
The events from that first year were Monterey, Montana, Palmerton, Asheville and Breckenridge.
In 2017, the US Champs Series events were back at Monterey, Palmerton, and Ashevile, but replaced Montana and Breckenridge with West Virginia and Seattle.
A little birdie pointed out that you could find a hint to the 2018 races at the following events. You will notice on the Spartan website, the following races all have a US Champ Series logo in the corner.
We have reached out to Spartan Race for comment and will give you more details as we have it.
