Spartan Race Stadium Series Miller Park Sprint

November 6, 2013By Anthony MatesiRace Reviews No Comments

Entering the Miller Park Stadium I could sense that this was not like your ordinary Spartan Race. It was unlike any other Spartan Race event I have attended. It just felt different. I arrived around 7:00AM and had to do a lot before it was time to race. I went straight to bag check and … Read More

Just over a week before the Virginia Spartan Race I found myself itching. I needed my fix.

Two weeks after contracting the now infamous Spartan Rash I was back out for another Spartan Race in Washougal, WA. Why would I go back to a Spartan Race after suffering from super-itchy-itis for two whole weeks? Because that’s what you do.
