Race Report: Calen Hastie – Warrior #5

Warrior brought us back to Nelspruit to race at the Mbombela stadium once again. The race was fast a flat and the same as the previous year’s event. The race started off with a sprint, but slowly everyone settled into their rhythms. I found myself in 5th place. The pace was relentless, with anyone mistake resulting in lost positions. Kelvin and I pushed hard as moved through the obstacles. The defining moment In the race for me was iron rig. I had some level of strength in me as I took on the obstacle. With minimum rest I opened a gap between Kelvin and myself. From there it was a straight race to the finishing line. I pushed so hard on the final stretch that I was dry heaving at the finish before collapsing in an exhausted heap. Thankfully, I took the 3rd place on the day behind Nelius and a local mountain runner, Johan. 

Thank you to my team for supporting me and to my sponsors for enabling us to represent you while doing the things we love.
