    Battlefrog was a short-lived but extremely popular race series from 2014-2016. For a brief period in 2016 they were the third largest OCR company behind Spartan Race and Tough Mudder, until they suddenly closed up shop overnight.
    From the time they closed, a running joke in the OCR industry has been "Do you think Battlefrog is coming back?" Finally, the answer is yes.
    Garfield Griffiths is a long-time and well-respected member of the OCR industry. He has worked with The CrossFit Games, Spartan Race, Savage Race, OCRWC and the first incarnation of Battlefrog. He is the new Chief Operation Officer of Battlefrog. He joined the show to talk about what Battlefrog did right in the past, mistakes they made, and why Battlefrog 2.0 is set up for long-term success.

Worlds Best Podcast

Love your podcast, if anyone is considering running or pitting at WTM this is the podcast you need to listen too! I ran Worlds last year for the first time, in the months and weeks leading up it I would listen to your podcast daily to try to learn as much as I could. You episode ‘how not to die at WTM’ was incredibly helpful. Always excited to see new episodes coming out, can’t want to see you at WTM again this year.

Love This Podcast

Whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned vet you will get something out of this podcast. Great information and candid interviews. Will has an awesome sense of humour and always entertains. The perfect companion podcast for those long wtm training runs!
