Points Details

The Spartan Points System

At each Spartan Race, an Elite, Age Group or Open competitor may, upon completing the course, receive a score that is calculated using our Spartan Points System. These scores are then tabulated into various leaderboards for many of our global annual Spartan Series. In this document, the Spartan Points System is explained in detail.

Calculating your score: Elites


All races are scored using a 300 point system. Points are assigned based on the Elite competitor’s final place and gender.

Points will be awarded as follows:

1ºª- 300

2ºª- 264

3ºª- 236

4ºª- 216

5ºª- 204

6ºª- 192

7ºª- 180

8ºª- 168

9ºª- 156

10ºª- 144

11ºª- 132

12ºª- 131

Places beyond 11th, the point differential between each finisher will be 1 point.

At 142nd place and beyond within both male and female Elite categories, there are no points awarded. For example, if you place 200th, you would receive zero points.

All race levels are scored the same. There is no weighting between different distances. For example, a Sprint is weighted the same as a Beast.

The Elite category is only broken down to Elite Male and Elite Female, there are no age divisions or masters in the Elite category.

Calculating your score: Age Group


All race levels are scored the same. There is no weighting between different distances. For example, a Sprint is weighted the same as a Beast.
