By |November 22nd, 2015|

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.

Last year, Rugged Manic went on NBC's Shark Tank and got billionaire investor Mark Cuban to invest in their brand. As I toed the starting line with a few friends I was excited to see what the infusion of cash and entrepreneurial talent added to the course.

Race Recap: Mega Mud Run Challenge SC

By |October 20th, 2014|

The Mega Mud Run Challenge (MMC) took place at Legare Farms, a 300 acre historic site in Charleston founded in 1725. Legare Farms is a working farm. Participants in the MMC literally ran past free roaming herds of cattle, baby pigs, and the occasional water buffalo. At one point in my tour of the course with the race director, Glenn Herring, a volunteer flagged down our all-terrain vehicle and told us that an injured pig was charging at the runners. What other mud run can claim that?!

Race Recap: BattleFrog – South Carolina

By |July 23rd, 2014|

A quick thunder storm came in Friday night at Carolina Adventure World to set the tone for the race weekend in which Battle Frog held its second event ever. The storm cooled the air for a little while that night, but it wasn't enough to save anybody from the blistering heat to come during the race. The sun was already shining bright by the time the elite heat racers took the start line. For anybody who hasn't been to an OCR at Carolina Adventure World, it is one of the most underrated and unexpected terrains for a course in the Southeast.
