Obstacle Course Racing has continued to grow into a global sport in the last couple of years. While the United States still dominates the market Europe, Australia, Central America, and South Africa also have strong foundations of the sport in their regions. In the last two years, the industry has continued to expand and grow throughout the rest of the world. The latest target from the large multi-national companies is Asia and the Middle East.
I was super excited when I found out I would have another chance to race in the Middle East. Timing for international races does not always pan out, especially when a country only has one race series. The Hannibal Race held their first race of 2016 in Awkar a neighborhood in Beirut, Lebanon.
