CTG is an awesome OCR

Aug 12, 2016 by Nathan C

CTG = A great course that's always adding something new

One of the Best

Jul 01, 2016 by Nick Cerone

I've done a ton of OCR's the past three years and CTG always puts on a first class event. One of the best out there!

What a rip off

Jun 30, 2016 by Daniel strickland

This event canceled after having many people sign up and refused any form of refund. They offered access to other another race but that obviously would require travel and additional cost. They sent emails out telling each entrant that all the money collected had already been spent and there was nothing left to refund. Do not support these scammers. This can be a rip off. In what other industry can you charge money and not have to give it back when you do not provide the services paid for??!!!

I love CTG! I've run 5 Tough Mudders, a Warrior Dash, and a couple of local events, and none of them are nearly as good as CTG. I've run their Little Rock course every year since they started, and will keep doing so as long as they keep coming to town. I'm also road-tripping for CTG Tulsa this year.

The obstacles bring a great variety of challenge, from reasonably easy to downright hard. Bring everything you have and put it on the course, because they will challenge you. . . and you will find it very rewarding!

As others mentioned, the value is great too. There is no other brand that gives you as much for your money as CTG. I think a large part of that is because CTG is owned, managed, setup, run, everything by one really down-to-earth family with great old-fashioned values. I've met several of the Mainprize family, and they're just outstanding folks with a passion for OCR and their participants. It's very refreshing to be able to bring my business to a family that cares about us individuals, rather than a big corporate entity that views us more like cattle.

Ran in Little Rock and Tulsa. Overall a great event! Better obstacles than just about an other OCR race. Will be signing up to do several next year.

Been there

I've competed/completed 5 CTG races, and they do not disappoint! They are quite challenging if attempting it alone (unless you consider yourself athlete worthy), but with the help of your friends or others on course, you will find this a fantastic motivator to get in shape! Got up off your arse and do something fun! This is it! Teach your kids to NOT come home to video games and snap chat. This is REAL American Ninja Warrior! I am personally in a group of friends where this type of 'racing" has changed lives and friendships. It's aweome!

I ran this last year with a few friends, and it was a very well put together race. But what impressed me the most, was how cool Mr. Mainprize was. I had the chance to talked to him after the race and he was such a cool dude. Very down to earth and you could see the love and the pride he had for his creation. To me that's what impressed me the most and that is why I am doing it again this year and bringing more people to join me in the fun. Thank you Mainprizes and thank you for being so humility.

The best mud run or obstacle challenge I've done yet.

First of all this is not my first running event by any means. I have ran a 2 Warrior Dashes, a Spartan Sprint, a Rugged Maniac and a few other local type runs. Conquer The Gauntlet was excellent for lots of reason but 3 mattered most to me and those I ran with.

1.Very affordable. For what I paid, I got way more than any other race or challenge has provided. I had a blast and there were no extra website fees when I signed up which was nice and a pleasant surprise. So many races are starting to charge fees for everything they can possibly think of, this race just stated the price right on there site and that's exactly what I paid. THANK YOU!

2. OBSTACLES. Tons of high quality, impressive, safe obstacles. Every obstacle was safe, well build, and an absolute blast. And it seemed like there were 35 or 40 of them, they just kept coming. Many unique styles and a great mix of difficult obstacles, I now need to train for, as well as ones beginners could accomplish. They were also spaced out perfectly, no long stretches with nothing going on.

3. TEE SHIRT. The best Finisher shirts in the industry. These were the best shirts I've ever got at an event. I wear mine all the time it fits great. It is actually like a fitted shirt not a loose event baggy fitting one.

Thank you guys for the way you put this event together. I'll be back every year and will probably run multiple events a year if they are close to me.

For the money, this is one of the best OCR events around. This was my 2nd CTG and it was just as well-done as the 1st in KC. Very challenging obstacles, some that required teamwork, and great courses through river banks and trails, as well as the location of embankments and hills of speedways. CTG so far has remained affordable in the field of OCR, with $85 entry at the latest entry dates with no hidden insurance fees plus discount codes available. I did not, however, like that they 'greased' obstacles, which made them nearly impossible even with teamwork. I race OCR because I want to attempt each obstacle on my own strength and determination. It was also not disclosed beforehand, creating more risk of injury. But that is the world of obstacles.

Lots of fun.

The staff, volunteers, and other runners were very helpful and friendly though. The obstacles ranged from easy to next to impossible, with several requiring teamwork to accomplish.
