AUGUST IS HERE. RACE ANY OCR, TRAIL OR KIDS DISTANCE, ANY WEEKEND.
New challenges. New rewards. This summer, virtual racing is back and better than ever — this time with Regional Challenge and Mountain Modes. You won’t want to miss out.
Every weekend, we’re hosting a different Spartan Virtual Race distance. These events are open to racers around the world. No registration is required.
Each Spartan Virtual Race consists of a run and obstacles. If running outside isn’t an option, you can also complete a cardio equivalent. You’ll take on push-ups, mountain climbers and more to finish. Earn a free global leaderboard spot and virtual medal, or buy a Virtual Race Upgrade and get rewards mailed to your doorstep.

It’s time to hit the Trails. This zero-obstacle, 10K and 21K challenge will test your grit in the great outdoors. Note that Trail races cannot be completed with a cardio equivalent. Trail racers can only run or walk to reach the finish line.
Elevate your Virtual Race by competing in Mountain Mode. Racers must take on at least 500 m of elevation over the course of their race to join. This optional challenge is only offered on a handful of dates, so don’t miss your chance to join.
What’s a race without some friendly competition? We’re adding in State vs. State and Country vs. Country competition to this season’s Virtual Race. Whichever country and U.S. state have the most entries each week will be declared the weekly Virtual Race Champs. Rally your whole squad and get ready to rep your home turf.
Mountain Mode may be completed by doing the following exercises:
For all distances, the running alternative request is one minute of high knee jumping jacks before each obstacle as well as one minute following the final obstacle.
To submit your Virtual Race, you must do the following:
After that, you’ll earn a virtual medal, certificate and spot on the global leaderboards.
