On March 23rd and 24th Reebok Spartan Race headed to North Carolina for a Sprint and it was a chilly weekend with rainy and cold temps Saturday and Sunday but that didn’t keep it from being one of the most competitive men’s event we’ve had in 2013!
For the men’s elite athletes it was a tight race. Check out these times – less than 2 minute between top 5 finishers!
Brakken Kraker (38:28.9)
David Magida (39:51.9)
Alec Blenis (40:15.5)

The cold weather was definitely a big story this weekend, but it not short of some inspirational moments. Joshua Swink ran the Spartan to raise money for Wounded Wear a total of four times! Josh Fortenberry, finished the North Carolina event in 3 hours and while using crutches because his legs don’t work like they used to. He’s had MS for 5 years.
We had some impressive women like Kristina Beville – Navy SEAL wife who finished her first Spartan Race seven and a half months pregnant along with other members of SEAL team FRG (family readiness group). They will be back for Leesburg!
We’d like to thank our incredible medical team who kept our racers safe and warm despite the unseasonably cold temps. We couldn’t have done it without you!
