This past weekend, Spartan held the first weekend of two weekends of sprints at Tuxedo Ridge.  Nearly 15,000 athletes battled the heat to take on the infamously hilly course at the ski resort.

The elite heat for the Reebok Spartan Sprint kicked off at 8 AM and when the first Spartans crossed the finish line Saturday, they not only earned a cash purse for their efforts, but a trip to that night’s Yankee’s game AND a shout out by the announcer before the game began.

How’s that for taking a bite out of the Big Apple?

The top three male and female finishers received a much-deserved shout out at the Yankees vs. Red Sox game, Saturday June 2nd.

Top males were:
1. Patrick Grevelding 50:40
2. Randy Feeley 52:03
3. Elliot Megquier 52:08

Top three females included:
1. Melinda Branch 1:10:44
2. Lelya DiCori 1:12:45
3. Juliana Sproles 1:13:15
