On June 2/3, the Spartan Sprint Race returned to Ottawa.   The race was 5k of running with about 20 crazy obstacles at the Rideau-Carleton Race Way.      Spartan races are a unique challenge ~   one does not know what obstacles are going to be on the course until one arrives at each.  Last year, the  terrain (Camp Fortune) made the race a challenge. This year, the terrain was pretty tame, but the MUD was  insane.     By the time we (seven Hostyle athletes) started our races around noon on Sunday,  it was raining yet AGAIN and the footing was nothing but mud and slippery grass.[…]
