Nick Dalrymple has been with us from the start, and Clay Bakke joined not long after.
We couldn’t be happier to have them both on board!
Whether it’s football, hockey, soccer, dodgeball, or obstacle races, these two are always up for a challenge.
This month we want to recognize both Nick and Clay as they are heading down to Los Angeles for the Spartan Races in Temecula, California. They will be racing in a Super (24 obstacles over 13 km) on Saturday and a Sprint (20 obstacles over 5 km) the next day. Two grueling races in two days – a challenge for even the most experienced athlete.
After competing in their first Spartan Race in August 2014, these two were hooked. Nick went on to run two Spartans the next year while Clay completed the coveted Spartan Trifecta – running a Sprint, Super, and Beast (30 obstacles over 19 km) in just one season.
Not only did Nick and Clay finish a combined five races last year, but they also stepped up their game by challenging themselves to compete in the Elite category for the first time. While racing against some of Canada’s best athletes both Clay (25th) and Nick (13th) were able to finish near the top in their respective age groups. A testament to their hard work and commitment.
Never settling for “good enough”, both of these men have set big goals for themselves this year. And understanding that nothing worth accomplishing ever comes easy, both have been training hard through our Winter Warriors program.
By training together, Nick and Clay have pushed each other to become better athletes and achieve more in life. Whether racing up hills, carrying small boulders, hanging from bars, or focusing on their nutrition, these two attack life with Conviction.
Good luck In Temecula guys, looking forward to seeing those shiny new medals!
