Episode 69 Extreme Nation 2.0 and Savage Race Revisted

 Sam from Savage and Matt B.

In today’s show, we revisit a couple of events from previous episodes.

Sam Abbitt is the founder and CEO of Savage Race. We first met him back on Episode 7 in July of 2012. Since then, Savage has put on many successful races in several markets. We catch up with Sam to find out what they are doing right and what is next.

Next we catch up with Hunter Brucks, the new “man with the plan” over at Extreme Nation. EN has resurfaced and their first event is scheduled near Tampa, Florida in February of 2014.

Hunter tells me they still plan on having large payouts ($40k) at each race. Also, Hobie Call and his vision of a spectator friendly “coliseum” style course are still part of the plan. Listen in to find out what’s going to be different this time around and how they plan to make it a success.

Remember, you can still donate to our Indiegogo campaign to get greatly discounted race entries, swag, and have your favorite athlete followed at World’s Toughest Mudder.

Today’s episode is sponsored by Pretty Muddy and by Ruckus Obstacle Race.
