What is it?
Obstacle Course Races are muddy fun runs, packed with challenging obstacles to test your mental and physical endurance. Since OCR is booming in the UK you can expect to meet thousands of friendly participants all getting muddy with a smile on their face.
Why is it good for me?
It’s one of the only events that integrate running, cross-functional strength, mental endurance and stamina, which is great for your general physical fitness and overall confidence.
It’s also worth noting that of all the sports in the UK this is the one that has a natural emphasis on teams. So it’s great to be done as part of group, or a family.
Once you sign-up it’ll do wonders for your motivation, and it’s also nice to know that come event day you’ll be surrounded by a friendly bunch of people with one shared goal. These events are rare because your fellow participants aren’t there to compete, they’re there to get muddy and get round the course.
How much does it cost?
£49 per person, keep an eye out for early-bird offers.
What equipment do I need?
Trainers with plenty of grip and clothes you don’t mind getting muddy.
