How Do I Qualify For The 2017 European Championship?

The 2017 European Championships will take place in Scotland on 24th July 2016. To participate in the Championship Heat and be eligible for more than £12,000 prize money and awards, you will need to qualify.


There are 2 ways to qualify:

  1. The Top 10 racers in the Men's and the Top 10 in the Women's Elite Heats at any European Spartan event will receive an email invitation.
  2. Top Athletes from across the world will be invited by Spartan. We are talking Olympic gold medalists...winning your local 5K will not count.


Any event from 7th September 2015 to the Saturday prior to the European Championship will provide the opportunity to participate.  If anyone in the Top 10 finishers has already received an invitation, then the 11th place finisher will be invited. If the 11th place finisher already has earned an invitation, it will pass to the 12th place finisher, and so on.
