Rea Kolbl is the two-time defending Spartan Ultra World Champion. She also won World's Toughest Mudder twice and is tied for the women's record with most miles at a WTM with 90 miles. Rea grew up in Slovenia. She moved away when she was 19 but still visits her family regularly. Last year Spartan held their first race in Slovenia and they will be back for a Trifecta weekend May 21-22, 2022 in Kranjska Gore, Slovenia. Rea is hosting a small group of Spartan runners for the week before the race on a guided tour of Rea's favorite spots in the country leading up to race weekend.

A quick message from Will: "Hey, shoot me a text at (619) 485-2726. Who do you think will win the last US National Series race of the year? Veejay Jones or Ryan Atkins? Call your shot before the race on Sunday. - Rea Kolbl has never lost a race longer than eight hours. She won the 24-hour Spartan Ultra World Championship in Telluride this past weekend. She ran 120 kilometers (75 miles) in 23:59 to win her fourth 24-hour championship since 2017.  She is one of only two women to win the Spartan Ultra Championship and World's Toughest Mudder. She is the only person to win them both wire-to-wire, and she holds the women's record for most miles at WTM (tied with Amelia Boone) and the Spartan Ultra Championship. Rea Kolbl is the greatest women's endurance OCR athlete ever. Rea joins us to talk about her race in Telluride, how she was able to pull off the win, and how to have a pre-race conversation with your loved ones when they volunteer to pit for you at a 24-hour race.
