2018: Spartan Australia National Series

Spartan Australia is proud to invite you all to the 2018 Spartan Australia National Series. The National Series will pave your way to the 2018 Spartan World Championships, where Australia will take on the world!

In 2018 we will hold a three-race series. One race type from each remaining 2018 event will be selected as the National Series race. Anyone who finishes this race will receive a unique National Series medal, along with your usual finisher shirt, and a chance at World Championship qualification.
