By |October 29th, 2018|

Spartan Race launched its brand new venue and welcomed thousands of eager racers to test out the dusty unmarred course in the spanking new location of Tejon Ranch, California.

If you started Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) because you were looking for a challenge outside your normal comfort zone, then it is time to head to the Midwest.  The Hammer Race held its first event in 2013 just outside of Minneapolis, MN and has been running ever since.

By |October 23rd, 2018|

Highlander Assault really does offer an exquisite a la carte of agony.  Pick your level of misery that ranges from a four-mile course, an eight-miler, a twelve-miler, or if you are a masochist, by all means, embrace an entire twenty-four-miles of struggling for yourself.  

Spartan Race – Virginia Super

By |October 22nd, 2018|

The 2018 Virginia Spartan Super kicked off on a damp and chilly morning. Recent storms had brought in a powerful cold front and substantial rain. Many Spartans were bundled up in coats, hats an gloves leading up to the start of their waves. While it did warm up as the day progressed, daytime temperatures only hovered in the mid-50s. The overcast skies and the cool, damp air was a textbook Fall Virginia morning.
