2018 is already round the corner. And if you are like the average Joe, you probably have some New Year's resolutions. Let me guess? Your New Year's Resolutions are probably something like "lose weight" , "get fit", "run faster" or "lift heavier". Which is most likely what you had last year too. And did you make it all the way through to December? Probably not. (If you did, kudos to you)
This past November two if the most iconic races took place on two consecutive weekends: The New York City Marathon (very iconic) and World's Toughest Mudder (very iconic within the OCR community). Each of them represents a great physical challenge on its own, yet both within a week are the ultimate challenge.
Every year in early December thousands of obstacle course racers from all over Europe make their way to the small town Rudolstadt in Germany. But not to visit the nice Christmas markets with their mulled wine. They are on an annual pilgrimage to Getting Tough The Race, Germany's coldest and also toughest obstacle course race.
Have you ever wondered how you should behave at an obstacle course race to not embarrass yourself? Or do you just forget about etiquette and act like a caveman? If so, here are my personal 10 unofficial rules of OCR etiquette to show good manners on and off the course.
If you are into Obstacle Course Racing you probably think a lot about the big aspects: training, nutrition, technique, gear etc. But there are also smaller easy to implement daily habits that you can easily incorporate into your day to day life and that will make you better at OCR in no time.
