The Last Death Race?


Last July, ORM published a series of articles about the future of The Death Race.

To bring you up to speed, a few days after the last Summer Death Race ended, Joe De Sena, said that it was the last one.

Andy Weinberg, the man who had co-led every Death Race with Joe, since it’s inception, said that registration was open for 2015, and that people should still sign up.

A legal battle has begun since that neither party is talking about on the record.

Here is what we can tell you:

There is a Summer Death Race that begins tomorrow put on by Peak Races.

Andy Weinberg is not currently employed by Peak Races or Spartan Race.

Andy Weinberg and Jack Cary created The Endurance Society in August of last year. That company has already begun producing races. This weekend (yes, the same weekend as the Summer DR), they are putting on an event called Sine Nomine.

If you want updates on The Death Race. The hashtag has been #peakdr. You can also follow updates on the Peak Facebook Page.

If you want updates on Sine Nomine, there aren’t any. Jack and Andy have decided that no one in the race can talk about it.

We reached out to Joe De Sena this morning to ask him if this was the official swan song. He told us

Is it the end for DR? Has it run its course? I’m not 100 percent sure yet obviously leaning toward it being the last race.

I reserve my decision for after this years epic event!
