Near record-breaking heat. More hills than anyone thought possible in Louisiana. Almost more obstacles than could fit on to one course. That’s the Battle OCR that took place on July 21, 2018 in St. Francisville, LA.
Athletes from all over the country traveled to BREC's Farr Equestrian Park in the heart of Louisiana to compete in the Louisiana Sports Festival Vanguard Race this past weekend, June 9 & 10, 2018. The outdoor sports celebration held in Baton Rouge Louisiana included obstacle course events, trail races, and mountain bike competitions.
Tough Mudder started off the 2018 season in New Orleans this past weekend with some visible changes. The biggest difference between the 2017 and the 2018 season was the five mile, two loop course format instead of one ten mile loop for anyone doing the Tough Mudder Full. On paper, it didn’t seem like that big of a difference, but on the course, it became clear that it had a very different feeling.
With an exciting 3.5 miles of trails, mud, water and 26 obstacles, the inaugural Vanguard Race kicked off the 2018 Louisiana obstacle course racing season in Hammond, Louisiana on February 17th.
Want to train like an elite OCR athlete, but don’t want to pay elite prices? Yancy Camp is for you. Yancy Camp is the creation of Yancy Culp, a veteran OCR athlete, seasoned coach and trainer to some of the of obstacle course racing’s best-known names. Not to mention one of the most inspirational people in our sport. I like to think that if I had Yancy watching me while I was racing, I would never not PR.
