Spartan, Tough Mudder CEOs Talk Rivalry and More on First Joint Podcast

Presented by Spartan Training®

Spartan has always had a massive goal — to rip 100 million people off the couch and instill a lifelong commitment to grit and perseverance within them. We can’t do it alone. After years of rivalry and Spartan's acquisition of Tough Mudder in February 2020, the CEOs of the world's two most iconic obstacle course racing companies come together on one podcast.

On this episode of the Spartan UP! podcast, Spartan CEO Joe De Sena and Tough Mudder CEO Kyle McLaughlin sit down — after a debate over whose podcast it is, Spartan's or Tough Mudder's No Excuses podcast — for a much-overdue discussion on the brands' past rivalry, what lead to the acquisition, and how both companies are determined to help millions of racers get back out there and make the most of their most anticipated return to racing ever.
