Fyke Completes Spartan Race

On Saturday, September 23 our very own Dr. Jeremy Fyke, assistant professor in Communication Studies, took part in the Reebok Spartan Race at Fort Campbell Army Base. The Spartan Race is a 4.5 mile race with 21 obstacles, including a 15-foot rope climb, 8-foot-wall jump, Hercules Hoist (hoisting 150-lbs up 20 feet on a cable and pulley), 90-lb sled pull, 110-lb atlas ball carry, 100-yard army crawl under barbed wire, and other diabolical tests.

Fyke is also a faculty advisor for the Belmont CrossFit club. Interested students should contact him (jeremy.fyke@belmont.edu) for further information about the team and getting involved.
