Winter Agoge - Congratulations to Regiment Elite Matt Dolitsky!

Over the weekend while most of us were enjoying a nice warm weekend at Warrior Dash, our good ol' pal Matt Dolitsky managed to conquer the Winter Agoge!  After 60 hours of sub-freezing temperatures in the Vermont wilderness, he learned an array of skills that will no doubt guide him in both his athletic ambitions as well as his life ambitions.  

Our elites astonish us every day :) 

Hello to everyone we met at Warrior Dash!

Warrior dash was a blast!  Thanks to everyone who showed up to represent the big red R, including some of our elites that ran multiple laps and even one elite that LUNGED the entire course over the span of 7.5 hours!  

If you were one of the many who got our card, you can ask whatever questions you'd like about our training meetups and events over at our Facebook group page.  Just request an invite and we'll get you in!

T3 mandatory gear list

Still interested in doing the T3?  There's still time.  To those already attending, the mandatory gear list has been posted this time on the live updates page, and not via the traditional email route.  The group has been quiet as of late, and the prediction is that at least two will bow out of the event before it even begins in less than two weeks.  Will that prediction hold up?  You'll know soon enough...

T3 perks revealed!

So far, 11 people have completed their registration for the T3.  If you haven't jumped into the arena yet, it's not too late.  Today, the good and bad perks have been revealed.  These can be unlocked (good ones) or removed (bad ones) by spending the points that the team has accumulated as a whole during the pre-game challenges that they have been diligently following in our live updates page.

Introduction to Lap 0 of the T3

Through the next month or so, we will be giving short little snippets of what kind of general things to expect in each lap.  Though we don't want to give away all of the secrets of what you'd be facing at a T3, it's always nice to have an idea.  First up... Lap 0.  The water PT.

UltraBeast article update

The ever so useful UB prep guide has received an update to account for the Tahoe UB as well as some other lessons learned from racing the UB for the last four years.  Formatting and fancy graphics still need to be implemented, but the wording and content are there for you to learn from.  Since that article alone accounts for half the website traffic, you will no doubt benefit a lot from it!

Check out the article here.

Team flags are back in stock!

After much demand and no supply, our flags are back and they are even higher quality!  This time, they're double sided!  Though this means they're a little heavier, they are much more durable and vibrant in color.  You can snag one for yourself at our store!

 They're yuuuuuuge

Avoid knee pain when you run in a short 1 minute video

"Running is bad for your knees"
"I can't run, my knees are bad"
"blah blah blah, knees..running"

We've heard it all before to the point where it's a common annoyance to anybody who has non-runner friends.  However, we're all human and have the same set of muscles that if not trained properly can turn you into that very person complaining about their knees.  Fret not, concerned runner.  For here is a quick easy to watch video to address these concerns, courtesy of Techinsider:
