This week, we talk to Kevin Donoghue from Monroe, New York. Kevin has been a Spartan Race Pro Team member since 2015 and holds multiple Spartan Race records. These records include 102 combined masters and overall Spartan Race podiums, 50 1st place finishes, and 71 1st place age group finishes. He's the host of Daily Burn Spartan, the first ever workout video series for obstacle racing and he's been a two-time team captain on NBC’s Spartan Ultimate Team Challenge. In addition, Kevin is Spartan Master Trainer, Obstacle Specialist Coach and one of the founding Spartan Course Officials.
In this episode, we discuss the challenges and benefits that Kevin experiences as an older athlete who has been in the Spartan Race game since the beginning, he gives advice for anyone looking to get started in obstacle racing, and we talk at length about the new competitive age group division that Spartan is introducing this year and what that means for him in particular.
