The obstacle racing season is starting to kick it back into high gear with many of the high profile series beginning their seasons as we round out the month of January. Mud Run Guide has members of our team traveling around the country and world to cover many of these races. The highlights of the coming weekend are Spartan Race kicking off their season outside Temecula, California, BattleFrog Series with their second race of the season outside Phoenix, Arizona. Across the pond in the United Kingdom, the famous Tough Guy Challenge takes place, and our friends at Mudstacle will be covering the action on Instagram and Twitter.  We will also be in Nicaragua at Fuego y Agua bringing you pre-race updates and interviews with Survival Run participants.

On the ground in Temecula, California will be our Crew Chief, Matt Willis, who will be providing updates from the event and fill us in on any new and exciting changes that Spartan Race has in store for the 2016 Season. Willis will not only be racing in Temecula but also sending updates from at the Spartan Race.
