Obstacle course racing: good crazy masochistic fun
A collection of dramatic first-person stories about the experience of competing in obstacle course races. In the style of First Marathons and Becoming an Ironman, these stories give the personal experience of participating in the sport, either for the first time, or as a lifestyle. Plus many tips for better performance.
OCR is the new series of events for people who have become bored with chasing down mile after mile in a marathon, or doing a triathlon, or, say, completing Army boot camp. OCR involves a constantly changing combination of such challenges as: crawling under barbed wire, jumping over fire, spear throwing, wall scaling, enduring electric shocks, plunging into ice-water baths--all while running a course that may be anywhere from 3 to 10 miles, or more.
Participation numbers for OCR are booming. Just as marathons and 10Ks saw a huge national running boom, we are now at the dawn of the OCR Boom. Get Muddy will appeal to everyone from the mildly curious to the wildly committed.
So go get muddy!
"Doing an OCR will make you feel alive again. We are naturally wired to run, sweat, and struggle a bit. Get outside and get the juices flowing. You'll feel great!"
--Joe DeSena, founder, Spartan Race Series
"OCR lets you play like a kid and experience life unedited."
--Margaret Schlachter, author of Obstacle Race Training: How to Beat Any Course, Compete Like a Champion and Change Your Life and the first professional female obstacle course racer
