Reborn Raw – Prison Escape, Horsens

After participating in the opening race of Reborn Raw, near Lederborg castle back in September on the 10 kilometer distance. I was convinced to try out the 20 kilometer distance as well.

So I signed up for the Reborn Raw Prison Escape Horsens 2014 Vol. 3 race, 20 kilometers, 39 obstacles. I knew it would be a challenge, since my longest run ever was 12,7 kilometers 9 days before Reborn Raw. I decided to give it a go, hoping that my fitness level due to cross-fit, was high enough to get me through.

I would say it was, as we completed the 20 kilometer course 2 minutes faster than i did the 10 kilometer run in September. This time 6 boys running where as in Roskilde we were 4 boys and 4 girls.

I was actually quite shocked that we did it in 1:56, especially since we never ran faster or gave ourselves more, that we were able to talk while running. I’m very proud of our effort, but at the same time a little bit disappointed that we didn’t give the extra 10% we probably had, and got a “killer time”!

This time around, i had borrow a Go Pro camera from a friend, which was chest-mounted, so i have somewhat 1 hour and 20 minutes of video that needs editing ( kind of boring seeing a dude running for 1 hour.

Once its compete, I will update this post with that video, till then you can see a few pictures in Reborn Raw gallery here below.

Finish time: 1:56:51 (67 out of 182 competitors) – again, I’m very proud of this :-)

Reborn Raw

After convincing myself that I have reached a sufficient fitness level, I decided to tag along with a bunch of guys and girls from my local Crossfit box for a obstacle run. Theres a new concept run, called Reborn Raw, supposedly the toughest obstacle race on the planet!

My furthest run ever is 10 kilometers, although that’s over two years ago, I decided to stick with the Vol 1. version of the run which is a 8-10 KM run. I really wanted to do the 18-20, but was too unsure if i could do it, so next time perhaps :D

The run was fun and challenging, with lots of running on slopes and nice challenging obstacles.

We came as a team, 8 of us from Grenaa, and we participated as a team, which felt great. I was a little bit disappointed when we came in with the time of 1:58 because it was only 10 kilometers, but as we found of the fastest on the 10 km track was 1:24, it was okay :-)

I did not bring anything to take pictures of track anything, so all i have is pictures and video from before and after. I did manage to catch two of the guys from the box during the first few minutes of the race.

I’m pretty proud to have completed it, and see it as another milestone on my journey from unfit 108 kilo lazy bastard towards where ever crossfit and willpower will take me, because I’m freakkin hooked ;)
