A Vermont native, when Orla "Vermonster" Walsh isn't crushing burpees at a Spartan Race or competing (and winning) Steve Austin's Broken Skull Challenge, she is saving lives as an Emergency Room Nurse/Ski Patroller/Paramedic and is also passionate about the mission trips she has done all around the world. A former sprinter who prefers the fast-pace of the Spartan Race stadium series, Orla is a sweetheart, a goofball, and a real force to be reckoned with. We can't wait to see what she's got up her sleeve for this coming season.
“For newbies out there…DON’T GIVE UP! I went out for my first race with my friends, I had no idea how to climb a rope, monkey bars or rings. I did my 90 Burpees and vowed I would hit the gym and learn how to conquer them. Be strong mentally, love what you are doing, train for the goals you set in front of you. You can achieve your dreams and goals by believing in yourself and getting after it!” -- Orla
