Spartan Time Trials
So…. Spartan Time trials! What is it? How does it work?
OH…. videos & pics way below….
You can CLICK HERE and read about it on Spartan which pretty much explains it.
I posted my review and videos of the Men & Women's Finals below. Pretty awesome!
Overview of the Time Trial Race
So basically it was a .6 mile run with 9 obstacles.
Top 15 Men & Top 15 Women will compete in a separate heat
It was really cool! Really fast… in fact the top time was 5:39 by Matthew Kempson!
There was not much room for error. There was just a 10 burpee penalty or a sand bag carry.
I was hoping to place a little bit better, but I ended up finishing 11:34 and 43rd out of 95 for men.
What killed me was missing the bell on Mt Olympus by a hair!! I jumped a little early like I normally do, but missed. So it was 10 burpees then up the hill to the wall.
The rig I got to the last ring and was dead hanging lol! That was an exhausting 30 seconds of trying to get momentum! Energy draining to say the least, then onto the bucket carry, the inverted wall, then to the twister where I left some skin on the course, but I made it! I was in Heat 15 and was literally the last person to come down, so it felt good to have people cheering me on at the TWISTER! No way I was gonna fail that!
It was run well and was realy fun! Got to meet a bunch of new people and of course learn a few things.

I was able to get the full women's final, but for some reason… “I am an idiot” as I was recording the mens final at the Twister, my phone was not recording! So man because it was a pretty awesome finish!! Sorry guys!
There was also the open house that allows you to walk the course and practice obstacles. If you ever get a chance to do that you definitely should!
That is really awesome because, lets face it…. it is tough to practice certain obstacles because where else are you gonna find them!
And… the OPEN HOUSE is free which is pretty sweet and the time trial is like $49…
Got a nice little swag bag from the open house as well. The water bottle is pretty sweet!
