Image Highlight

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, 4 and 6, 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.

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.

  • A week ago at Nationals Park I did everything right and then blew my race on one obstacle. In this sport you can't afford even a momentary lapse or moment of weakness. This weekend I'm going to give @frontlineocr a go. From what I hear, the obstacles are extremely difficult & taxing, and you have to wear a weight vest the entire time. This will be the perfect chance to practice being dialed in for every second of the race!

  • As OCR athletes we are able to do what we love on a daily basis because of the people and companies who support us. On this #thankfulthursday I'd like to show my appreciation to @spartandan01 at @hhexteriors . I'm able to get to the stadium series events this season in large part due to his generosity. Thank you Dan!

  • Pro Tip #1: Fatiguing yourself prior to running is highly race specific.  Pro Tip #2: Split shorts are highly attractive.  #spartanpro #spartanrace @spartanrace #workyourweaknesses #workyourthighs

  • β€œYour season is won in the off season” My mom drilled that home from the time I was 8 years old. Another athlete who clearly values this principle is @robpettyjohn . Rob and I have worked together on his OCR training for the past several months. All the work he put in over the winter paid off with an AG win at the first US Stadion Series race at Citi Field in New York πŸ₯‡ The best news is that Rob is just getting started! This race was not the final step, but step one.  #OCR #ocrtraining #spartanrace #winterdrivecoaching
🚨I currently have 5️⃣ openings for new athletes 🚨 If you have an OCR goal & are looking to partner with a coach in order to reach that goal, drop me a DM πŸ˜‰
