Since then, she has been training hard, and learning all about the importance of training hard and resting harder. I wanted to feature her, to show women that Bad Ass Women that come into our sport can come from all different back grounds.

Shale Hill – Obstacle Racing’s Field of Dreams

Race Recap – Savage Race New England 2017

Even though Savage Race is a big-name company in the industry, the event in Barre, MA didn’t feel corporate at all. The old school printouts posted on plywood boards before registration with everyone’s name, bib number and start time made it seem very informal and less technical. The OCR community is always very welcoming and inviting, and everything from this Savage Race at Carter & Stevens Farm delivered. I look forward to running this event again next year in 2018.
