"After the Beast the top 20 men and women from the elite category will run multiple laps on a short course that will be very obstacle heavy. The person who finished in 20th place will have the shortest rest time before being forced out into the next course" -Joe Desena (page 36 of the August edition of Spartans digital magazine) In the interest of preserving the health of the elite athletes I would like to petition Reebok Spartan Race to reconsider this "Sprint" race for the elites.
The sport of obstacle racing was made for guys like Hunter McIntyre. Competing successfully requires endurance to cover the long distances, physical strength to conquer the obstacles, and mental toughness to endure the punishment, all while other racers are breathing down your neck and trying to pass you at every slip and face plant.
