Spartan Race

South Carolina Beast 2015 Review

There is nothing like getting all beast mode on an obstacle course. And of course, what could be better than getting beast mode on a Spartan Beast. Spartan Races have become the most popular and widely recognized OCR. With that, the Spartan teams have to do more and more each year to improve the events, the turnout, and keep the OCR faithful coming. South Carolina is the state, Carolina Adventure World is the venue, and a Spartan Beast is the challenge. The final Beasts of the year. Challenge Accepted.

Barbed Wire Crawl

Getting down and dirty in the Barbed Wire Crawl is mandatory. There are few things more challenging on your entire body than trekking through a rocky creek-bed on your elbows and knees trying to avoid getting ripped up by barbed wire just a few inches above you. Arch your back a little too much and you will need a new shirt and some band-aids. Lift your butt a bit too high and you may be mooning everyone behind you.

Bucket Brigade

The Bucket Brigade is one of those obstacles that makes you test the fabric of your willpower. The task? Fill a five gallon bucket with gravel and carry it in front of you up and down steep inclines.

Atlas Carry

You are going to want to get real low to the ground to grab that stone, so hopefully your squat form is impeccable. You are going to pick up the stone, carry it to the other flag, do five burpees and come back. Keep a flat back as you pick up and lower the stone, and move quickly. Don’t cheat on those burpees either, chest to grass and feet off the ground for it to count.
