KILLER TRAILS & HILLS

The Grit OCR race course features a challenging 10K course that consists of 95% dirt trails with 5% old paved asphalt, plus lots of hills giving participants over 1600 feet of elevation gain and descent. The trails, hills, and environment provide their own challenges on top of the 25+ obstacles you will overcome by the time you cross the finish line. Designed to test your endurance, agility, and strength to make you more fit. We believe that anyone can do this, but it won't be easy, you will scream, you will hate it, you will love it, and you will have an awesome time!
