F.I.T. Challenge has been on the New England scene for a few years now. The popular local series offers both spring and fall versions of its race and recently held their sixth event. I've missed the last few races in the series but based on the glowing reviews from previous events, I was excited to see how they've grown and improved.
While most of the talk lately has been about world championships and toughest mudders, there has been a not-so-quiet evolution going on in obstacle course racing (OCR). And it's not coming from the big race promoters or the mega-sponsors/backers or even from the media. It's coming from what, in political terms, would be called a grass roots campaign. If you haven't seen or heard about it yet....you will! It's called #racelocal and coming soon to a Facebook page near you.
