Gear Review – Wear Bands

By |January 3rd, 2017|

It’s difficult to begin speaking about a product that has nothing like it on the market. I can’t say – “Hey everyone! Here’s a new version of ‘bleh’ that you can try out in its new and improved form!”. With that, I’m just going to jump into it and tell you all about my experience with Wear Bands. First off, I’ve had this for about 6 weeks now. I’ve put this through some strenuous testing in every possible way I could think of, and I’ve intentionally not been nice to the equipment.

Faces at the Races — Mike Weaver

By |August 22nd, 2016|

I grew up very active in sports and played a little over a year of college football. OCR gives me that opportunity to still feel competitive. OCR also allows me to push myself further than I have in any sport I have ever played and I love pushing myself to see how far I can truly go.

Last Week in OCR: From Sea-to-Sea

By |June 27th, 2016|

One of the things many of us love best about Obstacle Course Racing, is that the races come in so many forms.
