What you need to know about Obstacle Races

Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) involves a competitor travelling on foot overcoming various physical challenges or obstacles. The most common form of these are a combination of mud and trail runs, and the big players in the space are Tough Mudder, Spartan Race & Born Survivor.

Different obstacle event types

The obstacles used are often similar to those used in military training and tend to include climbing over walls, carrying heavy objects, traversing bodies of water, crawling under barbed wire and jumping through fire. They’re epic when done with friends, and these events are big on the social side so get a team together, get the war paint on and get ready for big celebrations and post-race beers.
