I was looking for a new challenge, something that would take me beyond my trail running abilities, something to give me new goals to work toward, and I found just that in the Grit OCR. This is the real deal.

This was one of the greatest races I’ve ever done. I love the new obstacles that really challenged my mind and body. Yolk’d really made me feel like I had to learn how to walk all over again, lol.

This was a very good, very challenging OCR. The constant hill running tested my endurance and the lifting obstacles really put my strength to the test. I also appreciate that there wasn’t mud. Thanks for putting together a great event.

Grit OCR was challenging and fun! Being a new venue I didn't know what to expect but it exceeded expectations. Running with my team made it even more enjoyable. Already planning for 2019.

Grit OCR set itself apart from the other races out there with their unique obstacles. Washing mud off my clothes gets old after a while, so I was glad this race didn't need that gimmick to be fun.

Grit OCR was my first obstacle course and first run-only course in general. The experience was great! The course was challenging and obstacles were a ton of fun. Everything was well spaced out. The race crew was awesome!!!

It took true Grit to get through this course!! If you want to push yourself to the limit and have a grip grouling, leg burning good time then I 100% recommend!!

This was a great experience. I typically do obstacle course races and at the end say, "that was fun" however at the end of this one I said, "Wow. That was a real challenge and those hills were no joke. Powerlifters don't do cardio but this was a challenge that was fun and I'd do again"

The Grit OCR race was amazing. This race tested not only my physical abilities but my mental endurance as well. Was it hard? Absolutely. Did I want to quit? Multiple times. But, I loved every second of it! Thanks for putting on such a great race, Grit OCR!

Grit OCR is an organized, well thought out race full of encouraging volunteers and staff members. Everyone there motivated me to do more and push myself more. Further, not once did I feel like I wasn't capable enough or couldn't do it because everyone and I mean everyone, was encouraging and helpful.

This was the first OCR race I've ever done, but I'm hooked. The obstacles were challenging and the hills were brutal, but you almost forgot about that when you looked at the views. Everything was well-organized. The aid stations were great. And the goodies, including the medal, were awesome. I will be back!
