Flood Bound – Hurricane Irene Documentary Features Spartan HQ’s Hometown

Spartans are no strangers to obstacles. The Spartan Hurricane Heat was created when Hurricane Irene blew through the North East during the first two day Spartan Event in Boston.  What you might not know is that  Pittsfield, Vermont, Spartan HQ, was struck a wicked blow in that same storm and was cut-off from all supply routes and forced to come together and save our town.  But Pittsfield, home of the Death Race and lots of rugged Vermonters, rose to the challenge.  Pittsfield resident Marion Abrams (the film maker behind Spartan’s Chris Davis series) produced a 1-hour documentary film about the inspiring reaction of the Pittsfield community.

No one got down.  No one waited for help to come.  The whole town of Pittsfield got to work.  Residents rebuilt roads, set up a makeshift medical center in the library, a school on the green and they shared food and encouragement.  It’s a true Spartan story of grit and determination.

The film features interviews with 38 town residents, including Spartan Race founder Joe Desena, and tells the powerful story of neighbors facing their fears and coming together. Find out more and see clips at www.FloodBound.com
