what is obstacle course racing?
Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) is one of the fastest growing sports currently in the UK. There are more OCRs taking place in the UK than half and full marathons combined. Obstacle course racings popularity has grown so speedily over the last five years, it has overtaken triathlons in attendance.
Why? Well let’s look at the reasons…
An OCR is an off-road run with obstacles such as cargo net crawls, walls, monkey bars, balance beams and muddy ditches. Think of it as a cross between a massive adult playground and a military assault course. Some races take part in an urban environment, which is on concrete but still has as many obstacles.
Most events are hosted in our great British countryside so you can enjoy being outdoors with beautiful scenery and fresh air in abundance.
The majority of OCRs involve masses of mud, which makes for some fantastic photo opportunities and lots of fun.getmuddy
