I know so many of you reading this will have already completed an obstacle race of some sort – I can’t quite believe that I haven’t. Hopefully that’s going to change really soon because I have had my eye on Spartan Race for a while now. Earlier this year Sam Lansdale challenged the country’s ‘couch potatoes’ to give Spartan Races a go; and with more than a million people in 30 countries lacing up, I definitely think people have done just that.
The 2018 UK season kicked off last week with the first race taking place in Kent. To mark the launch I was given the opportunity to interview Sam himself and as General Manager of Spartan Race UK & Ireland, he is the man with the answers.
