    First, let me say congrats to all SoCal Beast finishers! I would like to thank all the staff and volunteers who put this together. I really enjoyed this race and although I was not a top finisher, I did finish. I am sad to say that I disagree with the cancelation of the later Beast heats and the Sunday Sprint. This is supposed to be for the toughest of competitors. The Spartan series races are thought to be the peak of the mud race mountain. I was in the 12:00 heat on Saturday for my third leg of my first Trifecta. Not even a quarter mile in I was being past by competitors going back to the starting line! I could not believe the HUNDREDS of people I passed within the first couple miles. I was trying to boost their confidence levels and give some type of motivation, but to see so many people give up was concerning. By mile 4, I had seen groups from as early as the 10:15 heat sitting under bushes, trees, cliffs, and anywhere else they could find shade. I am not trying to be all negative with this comment, but I truly believe that those who finished are what make True Spartans. It might be that I am from Arizona and am used to this type of heat, But to be called off due to a "Heat wave" I would not call 102 a heat wave, if you kept moving and stayed wet, the breeze would cool you down. I am very disappointed with this race, sorry. I trained, I pushed, I came, and I Conquered! isn't this what being a Spartan is all about? Maybe I had a different vision than everyone else. I Do believe, you have to EARN the medal, the shirt, the respect! Finish the race! Be a Spartan! Conquer under ALL conditions! AROO!

    I can't make race because my son is sock, can I get a voucher for the next race because I already paid 2 months ago?
