Spartan Race 2012 - Toronto

Actually it was in Oro-Medonte - a place that's easier to find on Facebook than it is to find in real life.

Here are some photos from the event today.  Enjoy!


An event for all ages.  And all you need is your underwear (that dude is probably more fit than most 30 year olds.  Update: I've been informed that "the dude" is probably Martin from Crossfit in Burlington).

If you can't duct it...

Dog would've beat everyone

Dress up as a woman if you'd like.

Yes, that's an ambulance on the course.

Loving it.


I gotta thank CST for all these photos.  This sequence is my favourite.

Form is a little off, but that's fire.

Zoom in on my temple.  This is right near the end.

You wouldn't think I just ran through 7kms of fire, mud, and barbed wire.


I'm now offering obstacle course specific training for anyone interested in competing in Spartan Race, Tough Mudder, or Warrior Dash, or just feel like trying something out of the ordinary.

  1. You flew over the fire! Incredible! High five!

  2. That is so cool Chris! Mount Kilimanjaro, spartan race, what's next?

  3. You know, I don't know. Maybe I should finish this PhD. Or start an emu farm. Or become a sushi chef.

  4. Nice pictures, Next year I will be doing this race. Great job.

    The old guy in his underwear looks to be Martin. He is a certified Crossfit instructor at Crossfit North Burlington and the guy the kicks my ass in the gym three days a week. He is the guy you want to have when you are struggling to squeeze out that last set.

    1. I'll fix that up and put his name on there. I have a lot of respect for how he ran through that course. A lot of respect.

  5. Just to set the record straight, it is not my underwear.
    My wife made these for me a few years back. They bring me luck.

    This was my first Spartan Race and I loved it.

    Don't let anyone tell you that you can't do things because you are too old, too young, or too small. Prepare, train, and do it. That's my motto.

    1. Thanks for the clear up, Martin. And apologies about the underwear description.
