The most elite obstacle course race in the world!
This elite Obstacle Course Race is designed and run by former US Army and Special Operations soldiers and is a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business. We have designed this race to test you to the same caliber as the most elite and highly trained soldiers of the US Military Special Operations Units. Complete this race and you will become a warrior among men!
Think you're tough enough to race in the Special Ops Race? Try out either the Ranger 5K, which is over 5 kilometers of grueling terrain and over 20 intense military obstacles. Or conquer the Green Beret 10 Miler with over 10 miles and 30 obstacles of the most intense Special Operations training inspired course.
This isn't your average mud run, but don't get us wrong, there will be plenty of mud! We have designed 2 courses for everyone to get involved. I mean, have you ever done an obstacle course race where you shoot airsoft assault rifles?

"This isn't your average mud run, but don't get us wrong, there will be plenty of mud!"- The only sign of moisture in that dusty field was animal feces. We ran the 5k which was supposed to include "over 20 intense military obstacles". There were a grand total of 13 flimsy obstacles that felt like they were going to fall apart at any moment. When we reached one of the water stations they were out of cups... and we were in one of the early heats. Overall, it was a poorly organized event that wasn't worth the fees it charged. Race entry (comparable to the Spartan and other well established races), $10 parking (when there was a REAL parking lot across the street), $5 for bag check in (there was no reason for that as the showers didn't even work). There was also no after party, unless you call standing around doing nothing in the blazing sun a "party". Sounds to me like Crystal knows "the guy". She "heard" a lot of stuff. As someone who wasn't expecting much (since I knew it was the first race), I was still heavily disappointed and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I think I'll pass next year if "the guy" manages to pull off this sham again.
Pretty good for a first race
For a first race, this was pretty good. I can't give it 5 stars because there were a few glitches- like a late start on the waves, some of the promised obstacles weren't there, but I bet that's because of time/volunteer issues. I heard one guy did it all out of his pocket without any sponsorship- so I give him huge props for that. The showers were assembled, but I also heard that the water truck backed out at the last minute so therefore, no water. There wasn't a need for showers since there was no mud- so no big deal. I asked, 'why no mud?' to what appeared to be a head volunteer, and she said it was the venue's limitation because this was a grazing field for animals and it was not permitted for safety reasons (would you want to wade around in animal feces?). There were 4 water stations on the course which included a 1 mile, 5k and 10 mile course, and they all had water, but the volunteers appeared to have backed out because there were a few volunteers at the first ones, but not at the latter ones. The medals were awesome and the t-shirts are amazing. If you can look past it being a first race, it has huge potential to be a great event. I loved the BB gun obstacle, the dual rope climb, the huge cargo net, the tires, the window climbs, the over under walls, and the other obstacles that were present. Overall, it was a great experience for a first race- I hope the guy can pull it off again because I totally would do it again.
Special Ops Race Utah Fail
This race was a fail. The race website was all hype "the most elite OCR on the planet". This event was very amateur. Very few obstacles. The course was a dusty, flat field. No mud, no water, very few vendors, no after party. Showers didn't work. This event turned out to be nothing other than a cash grab. Pay $10 for parking plus the race entry fee just to run around in the dust and over a few hastily constructed obstacles. Spend your race cash elsewhere. Very disappointed.
