Ep43 - Rugged Maniac

We talk to Kaitlyn, Director of Event Operations at Rugged Maniac - and Race Director for the New England event coming up in September! We talk about the early years of Rugged Maniac, and their expansion after they appeared on Shark Tank - we talked about what makes Rugged different in the OCR space - and yes, Kaitlyn convinced me to sign up and re-visit one of the first OCRs I ever did, seven years ago in Southwick, MA.

And no, it's not near Southwick Zoo ...

This show, Paul and Sandy are joined by Josh in a parking lot, and Matt on a landline! We talk about Sandy's recent Toughest Mudder experience, and Matt helps us out with his experience at Bonefrog. We also dig into some of the feedback from the OCR community on the recent Bonefrog - where they missed the mark, and where they had successes.

Sandy mentioned that she may be on another podcast soon - keep an eye out for that over at Worlds Toughest Podcast
Do you have an opinion on Bonefrog? Leave some scores and a review - it takes seconds and helps everyone pick the best events for their money - and Race Directors read them! Community Reviews

On this show, we chat with Mike Dionne of Ragnar Relay!

Mike is the race director for both the upcoming Cape Cod event, and the Reach The Beach event - and we talk with him about what his roll entails, how he gets prepared for an event that goes for 200 miles - and what keeps him up at night as Ragnar Cape Cod approaches.

(Apologies for the audio quality, Mike was at the Boston Marathon expo at time of recording!)

Josh issues a challenge! 500m row in 90s, and he's 7s off that time. Give it a shot this weekend, and post your times to the comments!

This episode, it's just Paul and Josh, with Sandy out sick - but we cover some good ground, talking about the new Bonefrog Endurance event, and general ettiquette for people running multiple laps, we talk about Hobie going back to the Spartan Pro Team, and the recent iOCRU poll - should OCR remain a sovreign sport, or be wrapped up in other Olympic style events.

With questions from Russ of OCR Buddy, and Kelly - we hope you enjoy Episode 37!

Episode 36 - Norm Koch

With his friendly smile, and penchant for designing courses that make you cry - Norm Koch has been a fixture of the Spartan Race world for years - even inspiring his own hashtag and fan club. #effnorm

But, all good things must end, and Norm has left Spartan Race. We caught up with him to talk about why - and what comes next.

If you've ever wondered what makes Norm tick, take a listen to Episode 36 of The NE Spahtens Show.
Hint: It's not the years of innocent racers.
