A uniquely formatted episode. The first half has Conquer The Gauntlet Pros Jay Flores, Evan Perperis and Miranda Huber talking about running the event at Motus Ninjas in Kansas City. Jay worked as support crew while Evan ran 6 hours of Ultra-OCR attached to a hypoxic generator simulating 21,000 feet of altitude for the charity Folds of Honor (scholarship money for children whose parents were killed or wounded in US Military service). Miranda ran the virtual event alongside Evan finishing first.
The second half of the episode we talk to male winner Fred Clarke-Louie and 2nd place female Mary Koester about what it was like running their virtual event. Fred also shares some thoughts on Tough Mudder's Ultra-Equinox event, raising kids as a single dad and converting your old playground equipment into an OCR training area. Mary shares how she has been helping get others out to race, what motivates her and her future plans.
