Go. Do. That is All Rob Barger Does - Founder Redpath Performance Group | LotDR Episode 003
Welcome to the Legend of the Death Race Podcast, where you'll hear the legends of past Death Racers, new and old. In this third episode, I connect with Rob Barger the Founder of Redpath Performance Group, an endurance training program based in Massachusetts. We discuss his 2013 and 2014 Death Race experiences on the show. Rob shares with us his evolution from the Ragnar Relay Series to Spartan Races ultimately to the Death Race and beyond and his addiction to finding the next challenge. His journey takes him on a quest to push himself to that dark place to see how far he could go. We discuss how he trained with P90X, Insanity and rucking everywhere he went. From Rob's trove of Death Race stories, he shares about a mistake that leads him to using a hand saw to mow a lawn for 16 hours, why he decided to not listen to his boss, and how he gambled his way to his first finish. Tune in to hear stories from Rob's two dances with Death and learn one of the most important things about the Death Race, it's all about making deals. In the words of Rob Barger and Redpath Performance Group, Go. Do. That is All. Enjoy the show and thanks for listening. Don't forget to subscribe and leave a review.

Death Race Daren de Heras - Founder SISU Endurance | LotDR Episode 002
Welcome to the Legend of the Death Race Podcast, where you'll hear the legends of past Death Racers, new and old. In this second episode, I connect with Mr. Death Race Daren himself. Daren de Heras is known for his love of the Death Race. If there is anyone who talks about the Death Race more than me, it's Daren. Daren has competed in many Death Races and is the Founder of SISU Endurance, the same SISU that I partnered with to bring the SISU 24 Ultra to the PNW. Daren discusses what it was like to be the leader of the first group to come from California to take on the Death Race, how he and Mark Jones prepared for the Death Race, and he shares a select few legends from the trove he has gathered from chasing after the Death Race circuit in 2014. Tune in and listen to two old veterans of Death Race talk about this event we love so dearly as though it took place decades ago when in reality our last dance with death was a mere five years.

After that, he kept returning to compete in more Death Races, including Mexico, Winter, and Team variations which existed before the event briefly retired back in 2015.
