FANG COURSE

5.5-MILE EASIER COURSE

THE SHORTER COURSE

Of the two races and two courses, Claw and Fang, the Fang course is perfect for intermediate and first-timers or those not ready for the more intense challenge of the Claw course, trimming the distance and obstacle challenges. The Fang course removes the 3-mile ruck from Claw, taking runners through East Walker Ranch and a little bit on Golden Valley Open Space to bring the course to around 5.5-miles featuring a variety of challenging trails, killer hills, and 19 unique obstacles peppered throughout to give you a great Grit OCR challenge. You will scream at it. You will be in pain. You will love it when you cross that finish line!
