It's the 2019 North Lake Tahoe Spartan World Championship Powered by Rakuten!

For the fifth year in a row, North Lake Tahoe hosts the best Spartan and OCR athletes from around the world for the 7th annual Spartan World Championships.

Can 2019 US National Series, three-time North American and two-time reigning Spartan World Champ Lindsay Webster become the first athlete in Spartan history to record a World Champs three-peat? Or will Nicole Mericle stop the history in the making.

Tune in to see if Ryan Atkins can remain the dominant athlete in the male field - or if reigning World Champion Jon Albon, or 2015 World Champion Robert Killian snag the top podium spots.

Who will rise? Who will fall? Legends are born here.

The 2019 Road to Tahoe begins at 14 global National and Regional Series events and 5 major championships. There are two ways to qualify for the Spartan World Championship:

1. At the end of each National/Regional Series event, the final leaderboard determines who gains entry into the World Championship. The more points an athlete earns throughout the series, the higher their chances of earning a spot become. Each series is allocated a certain number of spots.

2. Participants must finish in the top 10 at any regular season event or National/Regional Series race in the Elite or Age Group categories to qualify for the continent-wide Championship. Rank high enough at a Championship, and earn a qualifying spots for the Spartan World Championship.

To qualify for one of the 5 gated Championships, you must be a top 10 Elite or Age Group finisher (male or female) at any regular season race (as well as all National / Regional Series events). A rolldown mechanism for elite category athletes exists globally.
