Race Recap: Dallas Merrell Down & Dirty

At this location for the Merrell Down & Dirty series I will have to say that the 5k distance was pretty easy for
me and the obstacles were semi-challenging. Everything ran smoothly, I liked their setup, location, vendors, announcers, volunteers and how organized everything was. Also just the enthusiasm from everyone I encountered was superb and I will definitely do this race series again and recommend it to my friends.

BattleFrog NY-NJ-CT Race Turning Into USA vs. Canada Challenge

As if it were not exciting enough with challenging obstacles and live demonstrations featuring U.S. Navy SEALs and a McDonnell-Douglas 600 Special Mission Bird helicopter, leaders of BattleFrog today announced that its NY-NJ-CT event is shaping up to be a United States of America vs. Canada challenge with top-ranked obstacle course race athletes from both nations announcing that they will compete on Saturday, August 2, 2014 in Englishtown, New Jersey.

Colorado Obstacles Racers Trifecta

This past weekend in Utah was huge for over 2 dozen Colorado Obstacles Racers. We all completed our Spartan Trifecta. For those of you who do not know what that means, it is completing the 3 distances in the Spartan racing series. The Sprint which is usually 4 + miles, the Super 8 + miles and the Beast 10+.
By all accounts we completed a marathon of obstacle racing. My races were 27 miles total with over 90 obstacles.

Gear Review: Geigerrig Pressurized Hydration Packs

Ever have a certain product that you use just about every day and can’t be without? Well for me, this is it. Geigerrig Hydration backpacks are simply one of a kind and stand-alone from the rest of the competition! Geigerrig Hydration packs are a total game changer! What makes these hydration packs different from others is its pressurized system to squirt out water wherever needed. All you do is pump it (it comes with a easy to reach hand pump) to create the pressure & you’re ready to drink or spray it. They are one of my favorite things I own for OCR’s.

The Fall and Rise of Dirty Girl Mud Run

On the morning of Thursday, July 24, EventBrite started receiving a few emails and calls from customers looking for Dirty Girl refunds. While the slow trickle wasn’t too peculiar, demands for refunds come with the territory – even for events that have a No Refund policy that you must click to accept before registering – as the flow of inquiries grew into a torrent of angry customers, the staff needed to get to the bottom if it. Dirty Girl had to date been a great customer, and there was no advance notice that the Charleston, West Virginia date was in danger of being held. The confusion gave way to a sickening feeling when the EventBrite staff pulled up Dirty Girl’s Facebook page, and saw the comment above. With the WV event cancelled without notice, the worst was yet to come.
