I am Chris Acuff, the 3rd place male from the Barbarian Challenge 2017. I am currently a student at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, studying Business. I live on campus and train In the city, which is much more difficult to train than in high school, but I do have access to the tech gym. I have been doing OCR since 2012 I think, but this last year was my first time doing the Barbarian challenge. With all that time doing races I really enjoyed the uniqueness of this race. It had classic and new obstacles and some challenging terrain, unique even among a sport that enjoys throwing challenging terrain at its participants.
