Sprint. Super. Beast
The Trifecta is the ultimate annual challenge — three epic races of increasing difficulty in a single year. Complete it, and you'll not only earn the most-coveted medal in OCR; you'll be fundamentally transformed inside and out.

Find Races

At the finish line of each race, every athlete receives a medal, plus a magnetic Trifecta Wedge. Once you complete your third race, your three wedges will snap together to create the most-coveted medal in OCR.

You can also find special, commemorative displays to showcase your unbreakable achievement.


At fan-favorite Trifecta Weekends, some athletes dare complete all three races in one weekend. These adventures take place at destination venues worldwide.


A small, but growing, group of Spartans are dedicated to not only finding their limits but shattering them.

These battle-hardened athletes strive to earn more than one Trifecta in the same year, with some earning three, five and even 20. With custom multi-Trifecta medals around their necks, these efforts do not go unnoticed.

Find Races

Not only do your Trifectas add up during a single year, but your accomplishments are also tracked throughout your entire racing career.
