On Sunday December 22nd, Santa Spartan gave everyone in the OCR world a holiday present. It came in the form of DekaFit, an indoor Decathlon style event with ten functional fitness stations with 500m of running in between each station.
After hours of discussion, Spartan competition committee and board of athletes have decided the disqualification of Ryan Woods and Hunter Russel has been overturned and they were both assessed a 5-minute time penalty.
After an exciting finish between Woods and Atkins, we learned that Ryan Woods was DQ'd for placing his hand on the truss at the A-frame cargo net. Was this an overreaction or an appropriate punishment for a rules violation?
Carter & Stevens farm hosted Savage Race last year and began hosting Spartan races in 2015, they have parking, festival area and clearing of the course down to a science. Prior to racing Savage on Saturday (say that five times fast) I've raced at this location about five times in the last three years. However, this was my very first Savage Race
