    Rea Kolbl: Your Spartan Ultra Back-to-Back World Champion

    Rea Kolbl: Your Spartan Ultra Back-to-Back World Champion

    A quick message from Will: "Hey, shoot me a text at (619) 485-2726. Who do you think will win the last US National Series race of the year? Veejay Jones or Ryan Atkins? Call your shot before the race on Sunday.

    Rea Kolbl has never lost a race longer than eight hours. She won the 24-hour Spartan Ultra World Championship in Telluride this past weekend.
    She ran 120 kilometers (75 miles) in 23:59 to win her fourth 24-hour championship since 2017. 
    She is one of only two women to win the Spartan Ultra Championship and World's Toughest Mudder. She is the only person to win them both wire-to-wire, and she holds the women's record for most miles at WTM (tied with Amelia Boone) and the Spartan Ultra Championship.
    Rea Kolbl is the greatest women's endurance OCR athlete ever.
    Rea joins us to talk about her race in Telluride, how she was able to pull off the win, and how to have a pre-race conversation with your loved ones when they volunteer to pit for you at a 24-hour race. "I'm not going to be at my best, but I want you to know I still love you."

    When will we see OCR athletes compete every four years on the world's biggest stage? The last 16 months have thrown a wrench in the plans, but "you'd be amazed how quickly things come back".
    Along with OCR and the Olympics they also discussed:
    Spartan Games Season Two! Venue: The Beach! Spartan Cross League. This is early but sounds very promising Spartan Ultra World Championships. This is the first year this 24-hour race has been held in the US. Spartan North American Champs. Tahoe, but with some surprises for long-time runners. Spartan World Championships in Abu Dhabi. "Like nothing OCR has ever seen before." After you listen, go to The OCR Report on Instagram to join the conversation. What do you think about OCR and the Olympics? Are you excited about Spartan Games 2.0? What are your first thoughts on the Spartan Cross League?

    Veejay talks about his plan for the race, how Ryan Kempson almost made it a very different race, and answers his critics about the napkin he brought with him on course.

Ecolleran ,

Great podcast

Always love listening to Will when I'm out in the trails. He makes me laugh and his interviews with the elites are very informative and entertaining.

GribbTJ ,

Great stuff

All-around great podcast. I love the race reports and interviews, they are both meaningful and fun. The recent episode after Hildervat has inspired me to find a way to get to Florida and participate in that race...whether I can afford to travel or not!

Fuzzy Bee ,

Not much to report, production is highly annoying.

Podcast can occasionally be informative and entertaining. The host seems more interested in over enunciating and sound effects than delivering a recap of events and news. Probably the best in a weak genre.
