Obstacle Course Race
  1. Aimee Flint
    Aimee Flint
    My name is Aimee Flint and I am a Wilmington NC native. I found my love and passion for fitness in late 2012 after signing up to Gold’s Gym and taking what later became a life changing group fitness class, Power Pilates. I started in the back of the room, but quickly found myself on the front row daily, challenging and pushing myself in ways I had never before. This soon lead to a new journey of obstacle course racing and the realization that “Flint is an endurance, adrenaline & o.c.r. junkie”. I am a competitive athlete who likes to be motivated beyond my own strengths and I hope I can strive for others to do the same. Certified instructor for Power Pilates in September 2013, certified instructor for TRX in September 2014 and newly Booty Barre qualified since January 2015. My OCR experience consists of: Dirty Girl Mud Run, Ninja Challenge (NC), Spartan, Tough Mudder, Rugged Maniac, Warrior Dash, Combat Mud Run (NC), Survival Sprint (NC), Battlefrog, Spartan Ultimate Team Challenge on NBC ” member of the Bounce Squad

    Athletic, energetic, outgoing (sometimes loud), organized, fun, confident, compassionate, creative, competitive, well traveled, adventurous and all around kind of awesome!!! I have always been athletic, but only started competing in OCR’s (Legend Racing, Spartan Races, BattleFrogs, Ninjas, Rugged Manics, USMC team racing, etc) as well as earning my Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do after age 40. I started running ELITE this year (pushed reluctantly by my fellow OCR friends) surprisingly, earning FIRST PLACE on the podium for Women’s Masters at the 2015 Charlotte Spartan Sprint and being in the top 5 for all races in my age group for 2014 and so far in 2015! I live a very active life in Raleigh, NC with my husband and 5 children (ages 14 to 21!). I was a flight attendant for United Airlines for 14 years. I now work for the Ezulwini Game Lodges in South Africa doing all of their non-profit US marketing. I get the privilege to travel twice a year to South Africa. When I am home I enjoy traveling to races as often as possible with my family and my ‘Legends T.W.O.’ running group. My motto: JUST DON’T BE LAST!

  6. Ryan Bower
    Ryan Bower
    My name is Ryan Bowyer and I am a 27 year old semi-competitive runner really looking to take the next step. I ran cross country in college at Emory & Henry College in Emory, VA after running cross country and track, playing baseball and basketball in high school. I ran competitively all through undergrad and then got to grad school and immediately gave it up. Between the course work, my assistantship, and meeting my now-wife, there were simply other priorities that took precedent. I entered the professional world in 2012 and regained that love of running. Since then, I have won a number of local races, won my age group in some larger 5Ks, and qualified for the 2014 Warrior Dash World Championship and, by default, the Independently Run OCR World Championship. I didn’t get to run in either, and won’t have the opportunity this fall either, but I’m looking to in 2016. I can’t wait to begin competing with the #LegendRaceTeam and representing #LegendRace Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/j.ryan.bowyer.115 Blog: ryanbowyerruns.wordpress.com

    Sam Papanikas
    Sam Papanikas, (born July 1974), is a chef, athlete, father & husband. He is the head chef and partner of Bleu Olive in Durham, NC. He was born in South Jersey and moved to Clearwater, Florida in 1984 where he played many sports including high school football, baseball & amateur beach volleyball. In his senior year of high school he quit his varsity football team due to lack of support for his athletic endeavors so he can help with the family business. After many years of partying & mischief, he started his own family and continued to excel in his career in the restaurant industry. At age 40 he started running and ran his first OCR race, Ninja Challenge, in 2014. He had been working out for a couple of years prior with no goals but that particular race changed everything about his training and re-ignited an athletic fire he thought he had lost many years ago. Now he is striving to compete for podiums, primarily but not limited to masters, in various OCR events as well as other races including swimming, trail races & road races
