We have been in contact with Norm Koch since Saturday, as there had been rumors spreading of his departure from Spartan Race.

Last night Norm told us

“I am definitely not leaving spartan. My heart and my passion is the Spartan Race. Designing and building courses and keeping spartan brand to its roots is my goal. Thats my focus and will continue to be that.

I’m one of the original 2011 trifecta earners,I am a 2 time Death Racer. I’ve got a Spartan tattoo for christsakes. I believe in OCR in every part of my being.”

“Everybody better get a bucket and get ready for the next race.”

So rest easy, (or not), Norm is here to stay at Spartan, at least for the immediate future.

  1. Great story. Somebody besides Joe has to represent the core of that brand. Can’t imagine someone better suited for the job than that dude right there.

  2. Awesome! I heard that rumor to and spoke some people and they said as much. Next rumor is Joe DeSena selling Spartan to Reebok.

  3. Searching All media sources to get in contact with Norm. I want to challenge him to beat me in the ultra beast Montreal 2016. 2 time Killington UB finisher. Design a course that will beat me. July 31, 2016 Montreal I’ll be there. Bring your best.
