Episode 138 – Rob Butler’s Universal Athlete Challenge

Universal Athlete Challenge

Rob Butler is the man behind Shale Hill, a permanent obstacle course located in Vermont. His obstacle designs and ideas have always been original and he puts on some of the most unique races in OCR.

Now Rob is on a search to find some super fit human beings and has created The Universal Athlete Challenge. He is looking to get 250 athletes to pay $2,500 and vie for a $100k top prize and $300k overall. We talked to him about what inspired this event, how he plans to get people to sign up, what kinds of challenges are involved, and what it is going to take to win.
