Spartan Race brought a new obstacle to South Carolina this year – the freezing cold! As I approached Carolina Adventure World where this race is held every year, my dashboard thermometer read 31 degrees. Seriously. 31 degrees. In South Carolina in November.
The inaugural 2015 Nashville Spartan Sprint was held October 24th at Fort Campbell, Kentucky on the scenic grounds of Fort Campbell itself. The 5.34-mile course only boasted 154 feet of total elevation gain which made it one of the easiest Spartan Races I’ve ever done.
The first ever Chicago area Battlefrog was held on September 19th at the Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva Wisconsin. The winter ski resort located about an hour’s drive from Chicago and Milwaukee provided excellent terrain for what is becoming known as one of the toughest OCR series around.
