Athlete On Fire

SURVIVAL RUN™ is not an obstacle course race, an adventure race, an ultra marathon or a survival skills event, but an adaptation of all of these.

SURVIVAL RUN™ is all about adapting to the environment and taking on challenges that are part of the culture and location where the event takes place. SURVIVAL RUN™ does not pretend to be dangerous, it *IS* dangerous. That is why it is by application only and allows only those who are truly physically and mentally prepared to take on the extreme challenges.

Hacking your way through forests with a locally-sourced machete? Climbing a volcano? Slim chance in completing the event? Check, check and check. Responsible for one of the most arduous and notorious endurance events in the world today, Team SISU's very own Cookie talks to the man that created this monster of an event - Josue Stephens.

There's not a lot Tony Matesi hasn't done. With a background of Tae Kwon Do as a child, having done gymnastics, competitive collegiate cheerleading (ranked in the top five nationally) and flirtations with Muay Thai, Savate and a little Capoeira, too, it could be argued his athletic foundations are solid.

Having done his first obstacle race in 2009 and gone on from there, he's finished the Death race, been an American Ninja Warrior and now finds himself as the Director of Spartan Race's Endurance branch.

Add to this his inclusion as a SISU Pro Team member and one wonders where he finds the time to do anything else. Listen here to the chat we had with Tony about The Hurricane Heat, Agoge and everything in-between.  SISU:RADIO is a part of the Athlete On Fire network.
