Welcome back to the absolutely beautiful Pacific Northwest, where Spartan, once again, held its highly anticipated Seattle-area US National Series. It was an opportunity for OCR’s top athletes to secure their position in the US Championship in West Virginia, while also providing a rematch of sorts for those who were physically, mentally, and spiritually defeated after the mud fest that was the Seattle Super in 2017.

By |April 11th, 2018|

Ever run a race in the Washington or Oregon areas and hear a tremendous call and response of, “How Deep?

That doesn’t happen very often in OCR. However, it was clear from the beginning that Spartan Race wasn’t just playing against the rest of the OCR field, they were upping their game from their last visit here.
