Team Arpin Completes First Arpin Strong Event

Proceeds from the race benefitted the Greater Westerly-Pawcatuck Area Chamber of Commerce’s “Bring Back the Beach” Misquamicut Beach recovery fund, which was established to repair damage caused by Superstorm Sandy. Team Arpin also dedicated their participation to those affected by the Boston Marathon bombings, where all donations collected went to “One Fund Boston.”

As for the race itself, the participants all had an absolute blast! Even though there were challenging moments, members of Team Arpin stuck together to lend each other a helping hand when things got tough. Everyone on the team agreed that the buoy obstacle was the hardest. Racers were required to carry a 30-pound buoy over and under ten plywood walls. Once through, the buoy had to be carried back to the starting point.

Team Arpin is ready to get back into obstacle racing for BoldrDash’s main race, which takes place at Yawgoo Valley in September. Last year, there was a massive slip and slide. We hope it’s there again!
