Recap from Spartan Race’s first Hurricane Heat of 2017.
Typical HH12HR events start with a team portion and then move onto an individual portion with time hacks. During the team portion, the only way that you get cut is if you give up. Our first task after doing all the check-in and introduction things was to were to migrate some sandbags about a quarter mile from where they were dropped off to where our base camp was. Next, we dropped packs and everything and went Kyoul, while following the Sprint course for Sunday. In this Hurricane Heat, we were instructed to only complete the Rolling Mud and Barbed Wire obstacles. If there was something we needed, we could complete the Rope Climb and Hercules Hoist, but we were not required to complete it if we passed it. It’s typical for HH12HRs to avoid using the course’s obstacles because safety coverage of the obstacles is scant at 2 am.
