Spartan Race Hurricane Heat: Townsville

Friday, 23 June 2017

Elliot Springs, near Townsville, QLD

Mud/OCR Team

The Spartan Race Hurricane Heat on Friday, 23 June 2017 in Townsville, Queensland is a 4 hour team obstacle course.

The Hurricane Heat was born in August 2011. On the advice of local emergency services a US Spartan Race was cancelled due to severe weather, which was later named Hurricane Irene. There was a loud minority of racers who didn't see this as valid and wouldn't let it go. Joe Desena, Spartan Race founder eventually posted, "if you want to do the course in a hurricane, then be there at 6am." 100 or so people showed up, and JD took them over the course as a team, adding a number of obstacles and challenges along the way.

The Hurricane Heat is run as a team so individual times are not applicable. Getting to the finish line as a team is the only goal.
