Paul Lachance recently ran his 200th Spartan Race at the age of 82 this caught The OCR Report‘s attention for a post which then caught our eye for a potential episode.

We were excited to reach out to him both for the impressive accomplishment, and because he represents a unique age demographic who take on OCR. Older OCR athletes have always been inspirational to us but we haven’t had an episode focus on it before.

We discuss how he found obstacle course racing, his family’s military background, favorite and least favorite Spartan venues, medical barriers that he has pushed through in his life, how it feels to be embraced by sponsors and the community, how to buy his shirts, plans for the rest of the year and much more!

I really enjoyed talking and laughing with him. Be sure to add him on facebook, follow him on Instagram, and reach out about getting yourself a shirt!
