Coming Soon: Dragon OCR!

By |August 30th, 2016|

The world needs more obstacle course races, lots more. The world would be a better place. More OCR’s means more people off the couch each weekend – helping each other, making friends, challenging themselves, and being healthier. Charles Bailey shares my opinion and has decided to do something about it by starting his own OCR in the Raleigh, NC area in the spring of 2017.

Race Spotlight: BoldrDash

By |March 23rd, 2016|

BoldrDash is known as one of the great local race series in the northeastern United States. Lynn Hall the series founder and race director said BoldrDash, the Bold stands for Boldly Overcoming Limitations with Determination, first came up with the idea for her race series in the back of her car after taking about 50 people for the first Spartan Race in Amesbury in 2010. She took that idea and ran with it, holding the first BoldrDash in Rhode Island at Yawgoo Valley Ski Area in Exeter on August 13, 2011. Since that time the series has grown to be a staple race in the northeast. Lynn Hall took the time to answer some questions to get to know BoldrDash better.
