Video interviews: Run247 speaks to Director and Licensee of Spartan Race UK Dan Tuffnell and Director of Spartan Race International Lee Goss

Its hard to ignore the growth of Obstacle Course Racing, not only in the UK but around the world. One of the main drivers of that growth are races like Spartan Race and we caught up with Director of Spartan Race UK, Dan Tuffnell, and Director of Spartan Race International, Lee Goss, at a promotion event at Covent Garden (Spartan Race takes over Covent Garden HERE):
