This week, BattleFrog and Rugged Maniac ruled the East Coast, and an extremely wet & muddy Lone Star State played guest to thousands of dedicated Spartan Racers. World-wide, people came out in droves to challenge themselves at such amazing events like Vanderbijl South Africa’s Warrior Race, Valladolid Spain’s Farinato Race and one of the indisputable kings of pain, UK’s The Suffering. Devastating storms and historically-high flooding wrecked havoc on eastern Texas last week, causing the cancellation of Dirty Girl Mud Run in Houston and Dallas*. Despite many areas of the Spartan Race Houston venue being waterlogged, in the true Spartan spirit the race went on!
With races spanning beginner-friendly to truly “Xtreme”, and temperatures ranging from brisk to cloyingly humid, we saw an exciting array of events this last weekend. Spartan Race had a brisk send-off in Atlanta, BattleFrog Series held their inaugural BFX24 endurance event in Miami, Terrain Racing, Warrior Dash, and Dirty Girl Mud Run brought the party to Texas; in Dallas, Austin, and San Antonio!
