SOCAL'S BEST LOCAL RACE

A challenging race that digs deep to push yourself to new levels of physical endurance, testing your core and grip strength in one of Southern California's favorite races that combine trail running with awesome obstacle challenges.
East Walker Ranch is a hidden gem located in the epic mountains north of Los Angeles in Santa Clarita, California. Featuring amazing trails, punishing obstacles, killer hills, epic panoramic views, and finish with an awesome race festival. Grab your friends and family, and get ready for the ultimate race experience this February!
Not everyone is ready for the Claw challenge, so for our Fang race we trim the course to 5-miles, run it in reverse, and reduce obstacles to make the race a little bit shorter and easier, a great course for first-timers, but don't worry, you will still need to train to get through all our signature obstacles and trails!
Take on the back-to-back challenge and earn a special Grit OCR Claw & Fang patch after you complete both race days. One of 3 extra patches you can earn in addition to the finisher medals. Get a 10% discount when registering for both days together.
Run through a trail course at East Walker Ranch and Golden Valley Ranch Open Space, taking you up the foothills, on the ridgelines with amazing panoramic views, and into the valleys with obstacles at key locations to take your race experience to the next level. You will love the trails!
Running the trail course is difficult on its own, now add in a variety of challenging obstacles that will physically and mentally push you to your limit, testing your strength and endurance. You will overcome each obstacle!
Enjoy the Grit OCR festival all day with your teammates, friends, and family. Watch participants going through the final course obstacles from the beer garden, enjoy food, and other Grit activities while jamming out your favorite music. You will have an awesome time!
The Grit OCR Claw and Fang courses are challenging, 95% dirt trails with 5% old paved asphalt, throughout the course, are a wide variety of obstacles that are designed to test the strength of your whole body, pushing you to the next level of strength and fitness. We believe that anyone can do this, but it won't be easy, you will be challenged, you might even scream at it, but you will also love it, and you will have an awesome time. Register now and prepare to challenge yourself!
