WHAT IS GRIT OCR?

Ever heard of Spartan, Tough Mudder, Rugged Maniac, Gladiator, Warrior Dash, Savage, EpicAmerican Ninja Warrior, or other obstacle course race or mud run experience?

Grit OCR is similar to these races but elevating it to the next level, focusing on core and grip strength, endurance, and agility challenges balanced with trail running while leaving out the gimmicky stuff. No mud or water obstacles (unless we get rain), but you'll still get plenty dirty as you get through the challenges.

The courses are designed to be balanced with obstacles strategically placed between sections of running and hills, to push you out of your comfort zone, test the strength of your body, pushing you to the next level of strength and fitness. We believe that anyone can do Grit OCR, but it won't be easy, you will be challenged, you might even scream at it, hate it at some points, but you will also love it by the time you cross that finish line!

2-RACE FORMATS

COMPETITIVE

Designed for competitive athletes that race in the spirit of pure sportsmanship, following all the rules and completing every obstacle to compete fairly against their fellow competitors to see who is the best. Competitive waves are split into men’s and women’s waves, chip timed, all obstacles are mandatory. If you fail, you can try again, but you can't cut in front of anyone, skipped obstacles results in disqualification for podium placement. You're only cheating yourself if you do not complete the race fairly. All participants will receive a finisher medal, top 3 male and female finishers will receive a trophy and prizes.

GENERAL

Designed for everyone, open to all over 14-years old to participate. Great for participants that enjoy challenging themselves, weekend warriors, first-time racers, and teams participating as a group, everyone is welcome. General entry participates in the same racecourse and obstacles as the elite competitive race, but going at your pace and abilities. Push yourself as far as you can go, if you are not able to complete an obstacle then can skip it. General entry is chip timed for overall results and age group ranking. All participants will receive a finisher medal and if you finish the race with a weighted ruck you also earn a patch.

This isn't a gimmicky obstacle race, Grit OCR is out to push you harder and make you stronger.
