Event attrition… how do we work past it? Everyone is always looking for the next best thing, the next challenge, or just something different. Sometimes the same old races just wont cut it.
We are going to be trying something new. No, obstacle racing isn’t new. Walls, ropes, mud… aren’t new. What is new is the BattleFrog series that will be coming to Winnsboro on June 21st that looks to be a fairly different obstacle race.
There are several options which you will find on the website, however I recommend looking at the 15K race. This race is just long enough to crush you, just short enough to sprint, and the obstacles are purposeful (this is opinion not fact). Throwing a spear is no gauge of athletic value, and the guys at Battlefrog have ensured us that this race will be challenging no matter how fast or slow you run, and a ton of fun. Think of this like a longer USMC MudRun, sans the team.
They have options for the kids too, so bring the M’s & 2.0’s if they are interested in seeing what #CSAUP is… Our very own bunny (lower case b) will be hitting the inaugural race on 5/31 to challenge Hobie Call for first place. He will report back his findings, and hopefully his winnings.
Side note – bunny just placed 2nd to the Spartan famous Hobie Call at the inaugural event in Atlanta today! If you don’t come to race, come to see one of our very own take first place this go around… he doesn’t like losing!
