Have you seen any of The Human Death Race Documentary updates on the website lately? You HAVEN’T?! The Human Death Race Documentary is capturing all areas of the Death Race. Straight from the documentary description, “Now, for the first time, the thrilling intensity of the annual Death Race is revealed. We examine the psychological process of how fear can be converted into excitement, how the impossible can be transformed into ecstasy, and how a better quality of life can be achieved.” As part of the process of creating this documentary a group of Death Racers, including myself, have been selected to follow and document through everything leading up to the race and taking place at the race.  We have been asked to film clips introducing ourselves and then various shots from our training sessions.  Take a look at some highlights from some of the racers that are being followed by 100th Monkey Productions.

From the land of California comes a friend that I connected with while suffering for over 20 hours with the original “TED the Tire” at last years Death Race, Daren de Heras. He is returning for his 4th Death Race with many others from Team SISU who have become one of those families of obstacle racers that you just feel welcome being part of. Oh ya he’s celebrating his 40th birthday on the mountain with us too. Should make for one hell of a celebration once we get our skulls.

I am also looking forward to seeing Michelle Roy compete again this years at the Death Race. She is one incredible woman and demonstrated an amazing amount of courage a the Winter Death Race this year. I was absolutely stunned by her ability to face her fears as she battled the frigid waters they were forced to suffer in for hours.
