Complete Press Release
Spartan®, the world’s leading endurance sports and wellness brand, will bring the 24-hour “Spartan Ultra World Championship” to the United States for the first time, to Telluride Ski Resort in the town of Mountain Village, Colorado. October 10-11, 2021.
The brand’s most challenging event kicks off Spartan’s Obstacle Course Race (OCR) World Championship Season, bringing some of the best endurance athletes in the world to the picturesque destination, where they will face more than 4,000 feet of vertical elevation per loop, technical terrain and unpredictable weather conditions.
The fourth annual Spartan Ultra World Championship will challenge the mental and physical capacities of racers as they complete multiple laps on a 10-mile course featuring at least 25 obstacles per loop – nearly double that of its previous format — for the 24-hour period. The male and female athletes who complete the most laps in the 24-hour time period will be crowned champions – with the top 10 in each category sharing more than $35,000 in prize money. The ultra-endurance race is gated at the Elite and Age Group levels, with 300 spots available for Elite and 1000 spots available for Age Group categories. An Open heat is also available for non-qualified participants, with limited spots available.
In addition to the 24-hour Ultra World Championship, the event weekend features a 30-obstacle, half-marathon Spartan Beast® race Saturday, October 9.
Registration for the 2021 Spartan Ultra World Championship opens Friday, February 19 at noon ET.
