Do you believe that preview runs should be a disqualifiable offense, or should athletes have the ability to pre-run without consequence?
For those signing up for their first race, it can be scary to think about hitting the course solo. But, thanks to the wonderful OCR community, you're never really racing alone.
When we think about inspiring stories within OCR, we often think about wounded veterans, amputees, or wheelchairs making it through the course. What we don't see or think about often are those with an underlying condition that makes it difficult to make it through the course. Today we highlight the Diabetes Sports Project Foundation and their new Project More Unstoppable Diabetics program.
As OCR grows, it's normal to experience growing pains. One of the most common discussions is whether race organizers should follow only the written rules or allow athletes more leeway and judge potential violations by the spirit of the rules.
