The 4 mile, over 30+ obstacle course race, Conquer the Gauntlet (CTG) returned to KC at the Grain Valley Speed Way to put on another great race for their second year in a row. Instead of racing this particular event I went behind the scenes of Mainprize Industries and experienced the hard work this family puts into each and every race they promote.
This race was 4.15 miles, 30+ obstacles, and had 12 mud/water pits. The Mainprize brothers definitely made this race their toughest event yet. This race was not set up for time purposes but completion purposes. The Tiger Trap on this course was the deepest mud pit I've been in so far.
CTG is put on by Mainprize Industries LLC, a family company. David Mainprize and his brother Stephen, with his wife Courtney are incredible people. Their goal is to create an energetic, community atmosphere while still providing an extreme, intense, and competitive race. You get what you pay for and more.
