What is the Spartan Delta and how do I earn it?

The Delta is Spartan’s toughest endurance challenge, featuring achievements in the core Spartan disciplines: Mind, Body and Spirit.  Wedges are earned through a variety of Spartan activities that you may choose from to create your own unique Delta.

A completed Delta can take many forms.  A Mind, Body, and Spirit Delta is just one journey. A combination of plates featuring multiple Trifectas from various years is another example. You write your own story.
