Brakken Kraker was one of the first superstars in Obstacle Course Racing and a fixture on the Spartan Pro Team from 2013-2017. He grew-up in love with all sports and in high school competed in baseball, basketball, track, and cross country. In college, Brakken led his Track & Field program, earning All-American honors as a middle distance runner. Although successful in all distances in OCR, his passion is the shorter, faster format embodied in Spartan's Stadium Series. A teacher by trade, Brakken is currently a full-time OCR coach, father to 3, ages 1, 3 and 5, husband, and still-dominant short course OCR athlete.

Q & A

In 2011, my college teammate, Matt, got hit by a car after I guilted him into going for a run. He was concussed, broke his leg, and tore his ACL. He signed up for a Spartan Super in Chicago as his rehab goal. I had no choice but to run it with him!

I have a strong competitive nature and fear of failure - the two go nicely together.

Pretty much anywhere in Asia.

I can dunk a basketball.

Since the beginning, it's been Hobie Call. He was "The Man" when I entered the sport, and I've spent the last several years chasing him.

The sport I love the most, outside of OCR, is Mixed-Martial Arts. I love the intricacies of the training and the need for a well-rounded skill set and athleticism.

  • I broke five minutes in the mile & dunked a basketball in the same year for the first time in 2004. Last week I ran 4:58 during a mile interval workout and today I slipped a dunk over the rim. That brings the streak to 16 years, with my goal being to do both at 40!  What's your favorite/best streak you have going?? @spartanrace
