We often hear the question "Do I have to be in a team to do an obstacle course race?" The answer is no, it is okay to race solo. While there are many teams that participate in OCR events, the fact is that many will go solo, especially for the first time. You will find that when you need help or encouragement to get through a challenging obstacle, it will come from the participants around you. People love to help each other out, we understand what you are going through and believe in supporting each other to get to that finish line.

Does this mean you have to go solo if you are not part of a team? No. Going with a team is great because you are sharing the experience together with friends and family, you push each other to get through and cross that finish line together. The choice is yours.
