For the first time in Spartan Race history a Trifecta can be earned in one weekend. And the individuals and teams to conquer this feat will have truly earned it. The race will consist of doing all three Spartan Race distances: 3+ mile Sprint, 8+ Mile Super, and a 12+ mile Beast!
All Three in One Weekend.
The event will take place in Hawaii August 16-18.
Denelle and I are looking to take on this Obstacle but we need your help. We are asking for donations and sponsorships to help use get to and race in Hawaii.
We have been fortunate enough over our last several races to do extremely well in our age group (40-44) and in our sex class.
Our race results for our Trifecta last year and our Spartan Sprint in Febuary in Arizona are as follows. The Arizona Spartan Sprint 2013 was the only Open Class race. All other races were in the Elite Class.
Arizona Spartan Sprint 2013 (4.6 miles) Age: 17th Men: 193rd
Chicago Spartan Super 2013 (8+ miles) Age: 8th Men: 125th
Monterey Spartan Beast 2013 (13.1 miles) Age: 8th Men: 72nd
Malibu Spartan Sprint 2013 (4.6 miles) Age: 11th Men: 73rd
Arizona Spartan Sprint 2014 (4.6 miles) Age: 7th Men: 53rd
Chicago Spartan Super 2013 (8+ miles) Age: 3rd Women: 42nd
Monterey Spartan Beast 2013 (13.1 miles) Age: 5th Women: 24th
Malibu Spartan Sprint 2013 (4.6 miles) Age: 3rd Women: 21st
Arizona Spartan Sprint 2014 (4.6 miles) Age: 2nd Women: 22nd
Plus we qualified for the Obstacle Race World Championships in Ohio in October!
WE REALLY NEED YOUR HELP!
We have continued our training and are getting faster and stronger. We are really looking to hit some personal race goals this year of placing in the top 3 or our Age Group and in the top 20 for Men and Women.
We do have several other non-Spartan races we are planning on doing with your help this year. But, due to some unforeseen circumstances with my job, our race schedule has been cut short.
This is where YOU come in. Please help us to continue our Obstacle Course Racing passion. We have made some great friends, have gotten in some great shape, and as a couple have grown closer together because of it.
