James Sardea (Guam Adventure Racer and Trench Challenge Athlete) finished the Spartan Super 10km race and placed 1st to take home Gold in the 50-54 age division. Ranking was 46/448 overall with a time of 1:23:42.

Jeffrey Rios, Trench Challenge Logistics Director participated in his second Spartan Race Sprint 5km distance / 20 obstacle race placing 8th in his age division, a big improvement from 19th last year. Ranking was 284/1655 overall. “This race was a lot of fun. My goal was to complete all the obstacles this time without doing penalty burpees. I missed the spear throw and cramped on the Z wall. The 2 things I spent little to no time working on. You train for hard stuff and fail on the easy ones… My take away from this is to train for everything 100% all the time.”

Registration has opened since January 1st. Stay tuned for upcoming pocket events like trail runs and training camps. For more information, find Trench Events on Facebook, visit trenchevents.com or email: info@trenchevents.com
