From Special Forces Soldier to Record Setting Professional Obstacle Course Racer
The first biographical book from an Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) athlete. Evan takes you through his journey as an unathletic child involved in drama club and Boy Scouts to becoming an Operator for the US Army Special Forces. Follow along as he is present for historical events like the February 22, 2006 Golden Mosque bombing in Samarra, Iraq and the recovery of the first ruler of Iraq’s car, King Faisal’s Rolls Royce, from Al Qaida in Iraq. He uses his cumulative 44 months of combat experience and mental toughness from graduating some of the military’s most grueling training to excel in endurance OCR.
After racing his fifth OCR, World’s Toughest Mudder, he dives head first into the world of Ultra-OCR. He finds his niche with BattleFrog Xtreme and makes appearances on the CBS televised Toughest Mudder. Motivated to live life to the fullest after the death of his college roommate, Jonathan Grassbaugh in Iraq, Evan sets out to raise money for the charity Folds of Honor and redefine what is possible in the sport. This ultimately leads to annual attempts at setting world records like: running seven days of Ultra-OCR in a row that takes him from Vermont to Oklahoma; getting a podium finish at every 24 hour OCR in the USA in one calendar year; running for 24 hours on a treadmill doing obstacles every mile; and attempting an OCR that is twice as long as the longest organized race, 48 hours.
Will he continue to break records or does his quest for more ultimately lead to crushing defeat?
