Brakken Kraker

Host & Guest on Obstacle Dominator
Brakken Kraker was one of the first superstars in Obstacle Course Racing and a fixture on the Spartan Pro Team from 2013-2017. He grew-up in love with all sports and in high school competed in baseball, basketball, track, and cross country. In college, Brakken led his Track & Field program, earning All-American honors as a middle distance runner. Although successful in all distances in OCR, his passion is the shorter, faster format embodied in Spartan's Stadium Series. A teacher by trade, Brakken is currently a full-time OCR coach, father to 3, ages 1, 3 and 5, husband, and still-dominant short course OCR athlete.
