Malibu is ramping up to be an incredible event! In fact, at last check it is on track to be the third largest Spartan event in our history. We found out that Tony Besson, an actor you may have seen from Spiderman 3, Nip/Tuck, and Entourage is a big fan of Obstacle Course racing and didn’t want to miss the chance to come check out his first Spartan Race. He’ll also be heading to the Super Spartan in Temecula in January. What does he hope to find in Sparta? We had to find out.
“The Spartan Race is one of the few “adventure” type races that I have not competed in, yet. I’ve heard nothing but awesome things about it, so I felt it was time for me to give it a shot.”
The actor was bitten by the racing bug when he and some friends checked out a few races and he’s been looking for more challenges. He’s excited about the venue saying, “I live within 15 mins of where this Spartan race is taking place, so I’m stoked about it…a very cool location.”
He’s confident about how he’ll do in the race, “For this particular race I feel pretty confident going in. Now January’s event in which I hear I might be competing in is another story!”
He joked about how he is preparing for the race, “I plan on stopping drinking 2 days before the event. That should be good enough, right?!”
His goals for race day are simple. He wants to have a good time and see what Spartan can serve up for a challenge. “I’ll be there with a good friend who isn’t as experienced as I am in these types of events, should be interesting.”
“Catch Tony in his latest film, ’100 Ghost Street: The Return of Richard Speck’, now available on Blu-Ray and DVD!”
