2013 Spartan Beast Race at Mont Ste. Marie near Ottawa
This YouTube video shows most but not all of the obstacles thrown at me during the Spartan Beast Race that was held at Mont Ste. Marie (near Ottawa) on July 21, 2013.
Out of the 612 registered soloists, the fastest time was around 3h16 (not 2 hrs as advertised) and the slowest 10h19. There were 10 DNFs.
According to my GPS: This is a 23.71 km Run in Lac-Ste-Marie, QC. The Run has a total ascent of 681.0 m and has a maximum elevation of 546.0 m.
Essentially, we ran up, and down, four ski hills and did the 20+ obstacles. Failure at any one of those obstacles carried a penalty of 30 burpees on the spot each time !!!
As for my race time, let's just say: I crossed the finish line !!!
