Hobie Call: In His Own Words…2016 Spartan World Championships

By |October 7th, 2016|

May 31st, 2003 Salt Lake City Classic 10k road race: I had won this race the year before, along with the Utah road racing circuit, and all the sacrifice and hard work was about to pay off. I had been out of college for 6 years now. 6 long years of sacrificing job advancements and career opportunities to chase the dream of being a professional runner. This was going to be the race where I turned heads and ran fast enough to catch sponsors attention. I had trained harder than ever over the winter and I was anxious to prove myself.

Since the beginning of the Spartan Race World Championships in Glen Rose, Texas back 2011 one constant has been the drama of the sport. Over the weekend, this year's Spartan Race World Championships was no exception. The obstacle racing world saw Hobie Call become the first three-time Spartan Race World Champion as well on the women's side the first two-peat champion Zuzana Kocumova. The drama continued as the second and third place women Lindsay Webster and Faye Stenning battled it out in a burpee off finishing eight-hundredths of a second between each other.

LAST WEEK IN OCR – August 15 2016 Edition

By |August 15th, 2016|

If we were to pick two words to sum up this last week in OCR, I would have to say it was "Spartan" and "Beard". One crushing it with nationwide domination and growth, and the other...for its lack thereof. (RIP chin curtain)

OCR Short Course Revolution

By |June 20th, 2016|

For years, the obstacle racing industry has talked about the short course time and time again. The most famous and vocal proponent of the concept has been OCR racer Hobie Call. His vision of the sport in the future is a short course laid out in a stadium where people can watch all the action. Over the weekend, at the Spartan Race Dallas Stadium Race after the main heats were complete a version of that vision was realized. The IORF revealed a standard stadium format course, in conjunction with USA Pentathlon and delivered by Spartan Race.

Thoughts on the Battlefrog head to head between Hobie Call and Ryan Atkins and why doing "ordinary" really well is pretty darn inspiring. Enjoy the Cooldown, produced by Athlete On Fire
