Blue Mountain Resort in Palmerton, P.A. is home to one of Spartan's toughest Super and Sprint races. Now, we must include a trail race into the equation.

On Saturday, September 15th, 2018, I sat in my car with no medal, no t-shirt, no photo representing my Spartan glory. How dare I assume you could just show up and demolish a Spartan Ultra Beast Killington Vermont. Seriously, I'm kind of embarrassed. Looking back, I simply did too much.
On Saturday, August 11th, 2018, Warrior Dash brought it's Elements Tour to High Point Farm in Clarksburg, Maryland. Not even a weekend dominated by the renowned North American Obstacle Course Racing Championships (NorAm) could distract Warrior Dash faithful.
