Travelled to Asheville, NC to shoot the NBC Spartan Races this past weekend and had the pleasure of watching almost 10,000 people traverse over the epic Spartan fire jump. This race is located in Black Mountian, NC, just outside of Asheville in a quarry on the side of a mountian. They say when you finish this race you "conquered the mountain". Saturdays race was a Super consisting of a course over 9 miles and Sundays race was a Sprint with around 4 miles with 20+ fun filled obstacles between the two.
You see a wide assortment or excited folks as they finish the race. some people jump, some dab, others flex, spin, flip, kiss. You see it all, and the best is the smile and personal satisfaction of conquering the mountain!
