My name is Shane McKay and I’m a Spartan.  My Spartan adventure started in August 2011 in Calgary, Alberta. Later that year I decided to take a short holiday and I competed in a second Spartan Race in Malibu…and then I was hooked! Over the next 12 months I competed at 16 venues and raced 18 times. Through racing I have met so many great people and formed solid friendships that will last forever.

I train 6 days per week including swimming, biking, running, stretching and CrossFit. I maintain a healthy diet, mostly Paleo, however I enjoy a burger, fries and a beer from time to time. I never feel guilty about it! I’m a disciplined business owner and a disciplined athlete. I have found the perfect balance (for me) with work, training, and relaxation. I’m always looking forward to the next Spartan weekend!

    Never heard Shane say how old he is. Did I miss it? He is pretty amazing.

    Way to go Shane.
    I turned 53 years old a few months ago & ran my first Spartan this year. I ran a 5K this past Saturday.
    I been training at Krav Maga and Kickboxing for about 3 years now. It’s the younger guys that inspire me to keep going and challenging myself to do more.
    I’m already signed up for the Spartan next year and will also run the Tough Mudder.
