Obstacle Running Adventures

Obstacle Running Adventure follows the journey of the MStefano Running team. This team participates in obstacle course races, road running, and everything in between. We strive to push ourselves and others to step outside of their comfort zones and try something new.

Jan 9, 2023

For the new year we did an event that Mike has had an eye on for years, the Frozen Clam Obstaplunge!

We were also able to make an episode out of it with event audio and interviews with a few participants as well as the CEO of Mentor Rhode Island Jo-Anne Schofield, the fund development manager from Mentor Rhode Island Jenny Gruslin, the head of Kids in the Canyon Don Blais, and the builder of the obstacles Ryan McGowan from Laidback Fitness!

If you are in the area this is definitely an event to check out next year to start the event right!  In the mean time check out ways to help support Mentor Rhode Island!
