As an Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) athlete who typically is better at longer events, I often am asked the question “When are you going to do the Death Race (or insert other similar event)?” The answer is probably never…because it is a different sport. Death Race and events like it such as The Ultimate SUCK, The Brutality, GORUCK Selection, Fuego y Agua and SISU Iron are not OCR events. They fall into a category on their own that lies in a region between OCR and Adventure Racing but closer to the latter.
his past weekend the world of OCR was buzzing from coast-to-coast with the relaunch of Atlas Race, the season opener for BattleFrog Race Series as well as the new extreme endurance event The Brutality making it's debut. In case you missed any of the action we have it all here in our recap.
