X Warrior - 12 hour black ops, Barhead, Alberta

12 hour night event, started at 9pm, and lasted until 9am. To obtain a medal, one must finish the last lap between the 11th and 12t hour of racing. Some people were setting up camps to have a little break during the night time, I on the otherhand was out at the trails all nihgt.
Obstacles were really great. I did them all and managed to hit 2/4 axe throws.
I was on a co-ed team, consisting of 2 girls. Team name is Mike's Bitches. And we placed 3rd! so that was fun.
Overall 45km and 1300m of elevation gain.

OCR World Chamopionships 3k and 15k - England, 2018

OCR World championships took place in Essex England, near the nuclear bunker site.
I qualified for the race and initially only took part of the 3km which was obstacle heavy which I thoroughly enjoyed. Although I thought the obstacles would be harder as it was a fairly flat runners course. The next day on the last heat of the day, I bought my entry for the 15km journeyman. Ended up 3rd out of the journeyman class, just couldn't keep up to a russian and a polish racer.
Obstacles were fun, especially the zipline over the water! That was a really cool part of the race. There was also a death slide into the water. My swimming took some time. Overall 60th and 300th out of age and total.

Nice climb near Jasper National Mountains. The drive is on the way to miette natural hot springs. We decided to go the hike (I took my backpack) 4km trek up and 4km down the mountain. 15% incline, total of 650m ascent. Took us an hour to get to the top, and faster on the way down.

Spartan Race Romania - Sprint, Super
Link for my race review above.

I did the sprint and the super. Fun trails, running uphill through the forest and the hill definitely takes a beating on your knees. The most difficult obstacle i had troubles with was the train chain drag. It was a chunk of metal that kept getting stuck in the ground while dragging it uphill. That obstacle took a good 5 minutes. The rig was fun as always :)
