Podcast Episode: 003 Rob Barger, Spartan Krypteia and the Hurricane Heat

Epic Race Gear Podcast: 003


Our 3rd podcast covers the Spartan Endurance event called the Hurricane Heat. We talk to Rob Barger who is one of the leaders or Krypteia who are in charge of leading and managing these group endurance events. We cover the history of the event, what happens at a 4 or 12 hr event, and how to train and survive one. We go over how he got started with racing, and the origins of the Hurricane Heat. We talk about training for a 4 vs  12 hr event. What is a Cry-Fecta and how to actually count an 8-count body builder. Rob really believes that anyone barring a medical condition can complete a 4 hr event and really find something special about themselves and those around them.
