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.

We are very proud of the number of guests that we have had on the show over the years.  A big name in the sport of obstacle course racing that we hadn't gotten around to yet was Garfield Griffiths though!

With the news of him no longer being a race director over at Spartan Race, effectively ending his 12 year old career of race directing for brands such as Battlefrog, Savage Race, OCRWC, and Spartan itself, we figured that it would be a good time to reach out and have him on!

We talk about the changes that he has seen in the sport over the years, lessons learned in race directing, favorite race venues, his love for cigars and bacon, and how his position in the company has changed.

We also discuss fun facts like him being the creator of Savage Race's "Wheel World" obstacle and what he wanted to call it, his history of spinning recorrds at the first ever Ultra EDM show, and how he started a Facebook group for dad jokes that now has 45 thousand members.
