It’s been a busy news week in obstacle course racing, so it’s time for a recap.

Adrian Bijanada joins Josh on the show to discuss OCRWC’s newly announced race format. Josh also covers Spartan’s announcement from Spartan about their new Trail Series event, as well as predictions on the US National Series dates and venues, and a preview of the Iceland Ultra World Championship and Jon Albon’s shot at $1 Million dollars of Joe De Sena’s money.

Ep77 – GIVEAWAY Alert – Spartan Race, Tough Mudder, Bone Frog & More…

The NE Spahtens Show has a new sponsor. And to celebrate we’re giving away something that EVERY OCR athlete needs come race day! You’ll have to listen to find out (that’s called a tease, and I am not ashamed to admit it).

Josh is taking the reigns tonight, talking about Spartan Race’s recent bevvy of announcements heading in to the 2019 season. Tough Mudder takes a “Classic” look at their events. And boy that escalated quickly – there was a man on fire, and Bone Frog has a Trident (Yep – Ron Burgundy quotes too. It’s midnight, I’m a little loopy writing the show notes).

Settle in, take a listen, and I would love for you to leave a LIKE on The NE Spahtens Show Facebook Page, Instagram Page, or leave us a review in iTunes so we know how we’re doing!

Ep75: It’s been a while …

It’s been a while since our last show … with all this sunshine happening, we got carried away and went outside!

As a result, we’ve got lots to talk about! Josh is in a boot! Josh runs lots of Spartan Races! Josh ignores his doctor! Sandy tells rude jokes! Sandy talks about Dynamic Dirt Challenge and Tough Mudder / Toughest and Savage Race! Shale Hell was amazing and Shale Hill is closing 🙁 Paul did … nothing!

Lots of great content! Leave us a comment, leave us a review, subscribe, share – are you still listening?
