CCaLPozVEAAtnjxBattleFrog Dallas

BattleFrog Series was back in Texas again this weekend after the beat down two weekends ago. Ryan Atkins continued his undefeated winning streak taking home his 4th BattleFrog victory of the season. Hobie Call took second place and Josh Zwonitzer finished in 3rd. Atkins commented about the race,

“Racers were anxious at the start of BattleFrog Dallas, knowing that the course would be similar to the legendary Houston course just two weeks ago. Overall I loved the course, and continued to run hard until the end. A momentary lapse in focus left me redoing the tip of the spear, just moments before the end of the race. A great atmosphere, and a challenging course left everyone feeling like they got tested and will come back stronger for the next race.”

On the women’s side K.K. Stewart-Paul dominated the women’s field. She was followed by Corinna Coffin and Brenna Calvert battled for 3rd place with Claude Godbout.

On the women’s side Debbie Koch took top honors with Lauren Casarant in second and Rommy Fuller in third. Casarant commented about the race,

“This was a challenging race, combining steep terrain and a total of 31 obstacles. My favorite part of the race was after the majority of the course was completed there was a ‘short course’ where they set a series of back-to-back obstacles which required both strength and agility, then on to a ‘WOD’ type workout before sending you off to the finish! Robb McCoy and his crew put together an incredible race which certainly earned it’s place among the OCRWC Qualifiers!”

“This year’s Georgia Warrior Dash delivered another great, fast-paced course staggered with well-spaced obstacles and a slightly different layout than last year’s event at this location. All of the the race participants I swapped post-race stories with gave it rave reviews. The “crowd favorite” obstacles I heard mentioned were the Alcatraz swim, Great Warrior Wall, and my favorite of the race, the Goliath slide into the finish! It was a fun day of racing and I’m extremely pleased to see Warrior Dash did right by their loyal racing community.”
