Shane Perrault, 27, of Woburn was on his second Spartan and agreed that the teamwork between absolute strangers was a highlight.
“There is a lot of teamwork out there that people don’t see,” said Perrault. “There’s some 8-foot-high walls that a lot of people had a hard time getting over and without the other people there, helping each other up, there is no way through it. The teamwork is actually a big part of the race.”
Brandon Stumpf, 37, of Manchester, N.H., was out for his third Spartan along with his family, including his 8-year-old daughter, Madison, who was doing the kid’s race.
“I think he’s crazy,” Madison said of her dad. “I wouldn’t say that I am crazy, but I would say that he is crazy.”
“Staying in shape as a family is what it all about,” said the elder Stumpf, laughing.
