We’re a full 10 years in to this obstacle course racing fitness movement. A full decade!  This is definitely not an all-inclusive list but long story short, it’s has been an epic 10 years of racing:

    Fast and furious Spartan Stadion (Stadium) Races for appx 6 years and in the last 2 years the competition has grown very deep
