Share

For the past couple of months rumblings of a “Triple Crown” from Reebok Spartan Race have been circling the community. Today the company officially announced the “Triple Crown” which has one of the dates in direct competition with the OCR World Championships. While many may flock to the this Triple Crown others are now forced to decide do they go for this prize money skipping the OCR World Championships or do they take part in the first truly united OCR in October. For many this is a tough spot and soon we will see lines drawn in the sand. Full Spartan Race Press Release below.

SPARTAN RACE ANNOUNCES FIRST EVER “TRIPLE CROWN”

 Four events, one Triple Crown Championship and over $500,000 in prize money and awards 

BOSTON (Aug. 20, 2014) – Never satisfied with the same old thing and always looking to advance the sport of obstacle racing, Spartan Race is changing the face of the sport once again in an effort to find the world’s fittest athletes.  The 2014 Spartan Race Triple Crown is the first-ever obstacle racing championship series of its kind. Racers will battle it out at three of four Reebok Spartan Race events this fall. The series features the world’s best obstacle racers and athletes competing for over $500,000 in prize money and awards.

“We have some of the world’s top athletes competing in our races where a mix of obstacles and terrain test their physical strength and mental resolve,” said Spartan Race founder Joe De Sena.  “We are kicking it up a notch by giving these athletes an opportunity to ‘compete and repeat’ to prove their dominance in the sport.”

In order to be eligible, racers must kick off their Triple Crown challenge by competing in the Killington, VT, Reebok Spartan World Championship, September 20, 2014, and finish with the first-ever Team Championship in Dallas, Texas, November 1, 2014. Competitors must round out their Triple Crown by competing in either the South Carolina Reebok Spartan Race Beast, or the Sacramento Reebok Spartan Race Super, both on October 25, 2014.

The 2014 Reebok Spartan Race Team Championship held in Texas will be the first-ever team-racing event for Reebok Spartan Race. Teams of four men and four women will compete on a 13+mile obstacle course featuring specially designed obstacles requiring them to work together to succeed.

The Triple Crown promises to be a memorable experience for racers and spectators alike featuring competitors from across the globe. Athletes from as far away as Australia and Slovakia will compete against local favorites like Hunter McIntyre, Cody Moat, Matt “The Bear” Novakovich, Amelia Boone and more.

The Reebok Spartan Race Triple Crown $500,000 prize purse will be awarded in Texas to the top Elite Men and Women who have the best cumulative performance over the three races.

    • Country life... brightened by a few simple tulips 🌷Beauty in simplicity. It’s fascinating the story of the tulip, a simple flower with no scent, and yet at one time caused such a stir
    • Before, during, during, and after. Hours of work, lessons learned, and more hours of work. Restoration Bungalow continues with one more room nearly finished. The moment I saw the house I was inspired to restore it back to its original beauty, one room at a time.  Tons of credit to Forest for all his hard work! Classic colors, furniture, and fixtures. Half the fun is the research and the rest is seeing the vision executed!! All that’s left is artwork and new bedding.

    • Seriously pinching myself while settling into my new home. Being able to walk out my backdoor into a canyon full of deer and jack rabbits, the dogs being able to run free the whole time, and quiet country life waiting when I get home. It’s hard to believe this is life.
.
2019 is off to a pretty good start! First day of work at my new job is Monday and spending these last couple days working away on the house and taking the dogs into the mountains behind our house.

    • This year I got the ultimate gift, on Friday I was handed the keys 🔑 to my new house.

We spent the weekend starting to bring her back to her original 1920’s charm. Christmas we woke up in the  house, drank coffee, opened presents, and took a hike out the back door up into the canyon behind the house. I already love being back in a tiny town you’ve never heard of. People have stopped by, given us cookies, fudge, and chocolates. Heard stories of previous families who lived in the house and a few nuggets of the property history.
.
Beyond excited for the next chapter of life. It’s been a crazy last month and a half. A dream job came to me, bought a house, and now in the process of moving and bringing this little beauty back to life.
.
The lesson learned in the last couple months is - trust life has a plan for you - things happen for a reason - and life is full of good people.
