OCR Podcast Directory

After an obstacle race comes through your town it can often be weeks, months, or even a year in some locations before a race comes back to a neighborhood. In between those times, you can get your fix of the OCR world through television shows but when those seasons are over there is another way to keep the OCR fire alive within you, podcasts. Over the years more and more obstacle racing podcasts and those closely related to the industry have popped up.

We compiled all the obstacle racing and mud run podcasts in this simple OCR podcast directory to help you keep OCR in your life on your way to work, at work, on the run, or even doing chores around the house when you wish you could be racing.
