Update: China AGOGE 003 – Post Conference Call

By |October 25th, 2016|

Last week Mud Run Guide posted this article - Big Trouble in (Little China) Agoge 003 - written by former Agoge finisher Chris Cow. He was troubled after this personal experience didn't resemble the same event that he wrote two glowing articles about - Inside the Spartan Agoge Class 002 - and - On Leadership and Endurance. Something didn't add up in his mind.

Big Trouble in (Little) China – Agoge 003

By |October 20th, 2016|

There are many different events out there, and sometimes things don't go according to plan. If Agoge 003 was a glitch that suffered from bad decision making on the ground or an overabundance of ego, then Spartan Race and the Agoge directors need to own up to that, work to make it right, and ensure that future events don't follow a similar path.

A big part of the process in events like these is figuring out what works and what doesn't and how to bind a team of individuals into an effective unit.
