Two members of Team GearJunkie traveled East last month to compete in the “Extreme Wolverine,” an obstacle race held at Stratton Mountain in Vermont.

The course featured six miles of mountain running, tall wooden walls, mud pits, and other obstacles. In addition to racing the event — which our squad won! — we sent our stalwart video shooter/editor Joshua Van Patter along to capture the action. His edit offers a quick look into the fun and insanity of the Wolverine race. —Stephen Regenold
