Key Take Away: Interview with Mark Montague

Are you ready to take your race promotion skills to the next level?

Then let me introduce you today’s guest, Mark Montague.

Mark is the Founder and Race Director of Soggy Bottom Boys (SSB) Racing based in Portsmouth, Virginia.

There are a lot of reasons to want to pay attention to what Mark and SSB Racing is doing.

SSB Racing currently produces three of the toughest Adventure Races in Virginia each year — with one of them an expedition level race called Storm the Eastern Shore — an 18- to 24-hour event.

That makes SSB Racing only one of two Adventure Racing promoters to do any 24-hour events in Virginia.

You can find out all about these epic races over at

Mark gets into all of this and more!
