Why Do Obstacle Races Cost so Damn Much!?

People always ask why it costs so much to do a race, and i usually respond, " Can you really put a price tag on what will be one of the best day's of your life?"

If you're someone that hasn't raced yet i invite you to check out a race by you. Do your research first by checking out reviews on www.ObstacleRaceReviews.com and www.MudRunFun.com because all events are different. Also check out those sites and www.MudandAdventure.com out for discount codes so you can save a few bucks.



Either way, how much do you typically spend just on a dinner and a movie, concerts, and other things that just make you fat and will be forgotten within the year?

So here's the breakdown on what a LEGITIMATE race spends to put on an event that you will remember for a lifetime. Remember, all events aren't created equally and these are just ballpark numbers.

1. Site Fee (From Farm Land, motocross tracks, and mountains)  - 10-50K
2. Insurance - 5-15K
3. Obstacles - 50-200K
4. Entertainment - 3-20K
5. Freebies and Items included in Registration cost (Medals, Beer, Timers, Bibs, shirts, free pics, points series, etc)  $15 per racer
6. Fire & Rescue - 5-15K
7. Police and Security - 4-10K
8. Advertising - 10-50K
8. Then you have all the additional stuff like paying for staff, countless hours of prep work and logistics planning, travel, porta potties, barricades, water, electricity, equipment, cleanup, and the list goes on and on.

Soooo...I hope this makes all you badass obstacle racers out there understand and appreciate all that goes into putting on one single event. I also hope that this makes all you entrepreneurs who want to jump on the bandwagon and start your own race think twice.

Looking forward to meeting you all at a future race and hopefully at a SUPERHERO SCRAMBLE!

Team R2R - The Ocala Adventure



One thing seems to lead to the next. 1 year ago if someone would've told me that I'd be racing mountain bikes, running adventure races, kiteboarding at a high level, or just even plain old running...I would have said they were crazy!

In this past year I started to really take my health serious by using supplements on a daily basis, and within a months time I started feeling more energy, more focused, and up to more challenges. Within 2 months I lost 10 lbs of fat, gained 10lbs of muscle and lost 3 inches in my waist! I  continue to get leaner and leaner! I gave up smoking a cigar a day and drinking beer and wine daily. One positive decision naturally made it easier to make the next!

So, if you were like me.....someone that just made excuses of why i was getting fat...why it was ok to keep buying bigger pants...i want you to know that you too can totally transform your entire life within a matter of a month! Make the decision to get started! If you want any info on what exactly i did that made the difference message me. 

In the meantime check out the video from my last adventure :)
