Running is one of the most popular fitness activities in North America, but it's not necessarily practiced in a straight line. While marathons, particularly half-marathons increase in popularity, so does Obstacle Course Racing (OCR), which The Running Event (TRE) will examine in a new Experiential Zone adjacent to the main hall of the Austin Convention Center, Dec. 1-4, 2015.
While you meet people from all walks of life on the racing circuit, the growth of obstacle racing over the years has allowed for a number of distinct groups to emerge. If you have been racing for a while, chances are you have run into one of these folks on the race course. [We love and need them all.]
