MudGear Obstacle Race Apparel is pleased to announce the selection of Matthew Kempson as a member of Team MudGear.

Matthew Kempson is the young guy that haunts the dreams of today's older elite athletes. When they wake up, stand in front of the mirror and pluck gray hairs, they can still hear his footsteps creeping up behind them. And they wonder how long they can hold him off. But no amount of training or beet juice can stop the hands of time or the relentless pursuit of a man on mission. Matthew Kempson's mission is to be in the top 3 Spartan Race World Rankings and he has the drive to get there.

"I am excited to race with Team MudGear. It's a great fit for me because all of my best training is done outside on the trails; in the sun, in the rain, in the snow, and in the mud."

In addition to elite OCR competition, Matthew spends his time as an Assistant Coach for the UConn Alpine Ski Team and as a professional mechanical engineer. We look forward to watching Matthew's continued growth in the elite OCR world, and we are excited to tap into his product engineering expertise as we build the next generation of advanced gear and apparel for obstacle racing.
