BattleFrog SUSPENDING 2016 Race Season

If you haven't heard, there is a lot of news buzzing about BattleFrog today. Many are indicating that the company is closing its doors and there seems to be a lack of official press releases. However, it is my opinion that new reporting should be based on fact and not social media buzz.

BFX San Antonio 2016 Review

My interest in BFX originated in March of 2015, my plan was to complete BFX in what ended up being BattleFrog’s last Sunday event. However, I ran into a small problem, I was running Elite on Saturday and I encountered which may still be the most difficult course I have ever encountered. It coined the term the Brenna Bars, had Elites having breakdowns on the course, and Hobie Call said the course was harder than the Killington Beast; establishing BeardTM as a premier Race Director. In fact, there were podium finishers who took 7 hours to complete a 10-mile course. I awoke on day two and couldn’t close my hands to pull up my sock and knew I had to call it in.

When people bitch and moan…HB speaks up… BFX

Endurance racing is not a new thing, but it has finally started getting attention as OCR becomes increasingly popular. When I started OCR 3 years ago, Spartan Ultra Beast was the big daddy race, until I discovered Death Race, WTM, TPK, etc.... This form of racing takes on a whole new meaning to those of us that claim to be an Endurance racer. In OCR, that looks different from just running 100 miles on trails or roads (which is still hella endurance racing), just...different.

Taking the mic at the start of the elite wave the unBFeated champ went over his rules of the course and introduced us to a some new obstacles.

BattleFrog Austin Fall 2015 Race Review

BattleFrog, this season, seems to be the most talked about/controversial race series of the larger series (BattleFrog, Spartan, TM, Warrior Dash and Savage). They gone have from 5 and 15k course with BFX, to a singular 8k loop for a 1 lap, 16k Competitive/Elite and an all you can take Open BFX. They have also seen some turnover and, while this has been a major highlight, when you look at business norms they are right in line. The OCR community is just a big family, so these changes seem to hit harder. Their focus seems to be on the customer/racer experience. As long as it does, things should work out for the Frog.
