Definitely a race for beginners, or kids. Keep low expectations, and you'll be alright. Not much for sponsorship, or organization. Easier obstacles, very little direction from staff. This event went untimed due to weather, which was questionable. A far cry from a Spartan or Savage race. Be careful when signing up to not get stuck with a 1 year free membership from Active.com or you'll be paying an $80 renewel fee.
Worst OCR I've done
I had watched the 2018 race on Youtube and it looked awesome!! I signed up knowing the extra fees, so I'm not gonna bitch about that. The course was NOWHERE NEAR what the 2018 course was like. It felt more like a kids mud run if anything.
I have to randomly click on the event website to find out it has been cancelled? Or maybe postponed? Hard to say since the website states both. No email notification of changes. I get it with the current world situation, things are touch and go, but to cancel 3 months out and not notify, attempt to postpone, or even attempt at a refund??? Seems to be a common theme in these reviews of the no refund policy. Joke of a race direction company if you ask me. Far from "free", and even farther from getting me a second time around

What a rip off!
I have never been disappointed with a race company until now.
My family of four showed up at Texas Motor Speedway for our first OCR event of the year. Right away we are hit with a $20 fee to park, kind of steep, but okay. We park, get in line to pick up our packets, only to find out it's going to cost us anther $5/each to pick up the packets. Has anyone ever heard of paying to pick up your packet for a race you already paid for?!?
We ended up paying the additional $20 for the packets. I didn't even bother to check the bag, but I'm sure if I paid to check it, I would have had to pay to pick it up too! I asked to speak to the race director and was told he wasn't even on site.
The obstacles were only okay, but the biggest challenge was staying on the poorly marked course!
Don't waste your money on this worthless 5K. After being nickel and dime you'll spend the same amount on a much higher quality race.
Waste of money
Don’t waste your money.
Price: says free but not really after you pay for the waiver, donation, parking, day of race check in fee. They will nickel & dime you. Would be better if they just charge a higher rate.
Location/Race: horrible, running on rocks the whole time.
Obstacles: just okay
Don’t waste your time or money
Pretty much a money maker. Site is vague on actual cost, so I contacted the organizer for info:
$14 insurance and fee
$17 registration fee (kicks back to organizer)
They state registration is $40 but waived if registered before a certain date. That date constantly gets moved later and later just to pressure people into registering. It's a horrible tactic...The race is okay I'm sure, but the registration and profit tactics wreak of 1970's used car sales.
Not Worth it! Very disorganize. Mostly running a gravel road with a few obstacles even the mud dried up. I personally got a deep stab on the palm of my hand while dragging myself under a heavy net in a multitude (hundreds) of safety pins that where on the ground from other racers dragging their bibs there. I warned the personnel, and got the most I don't give a s@$%t look. I was shocked, they didn"t do anything and many others got hurt. I also found myself getting of course to chase personnel on golf carts for water for my kids because all the water station were empty and unattended.Btw they'll nickel and dime you once your there. Never again!
This was my first obstacle course race ever. I drove 5 hours and had a blast. I am actually looking forward to particapating in another one in Fort Worth, Texas because of how much fun it was. Since this was a goal I had when I turned 50, completed it at 51 was an awesome experiance. I was very pleased that I felt no pressure on anything. No punichment work if I couldnt complete and obstacle, had help when I ask for it. Just a very laid back experiance. I would recommand this for anyone older or starting out. There were long lines to get into the venue and parking was $20 and packet pick up was $5 but all fees were advertised well in advance so I knew exactly how much cash to have on hand. Overall it really was an great experiance and I'm ready to takcle the next one!
Alarming safety issues/Injuries
I went into race not expecting a lot and wasn't bothered by the disorganization. But the safety issues were surprising. There were no volunteers or race officials for long stretches of the course and at some obstacle stations. The cargo net wall was very rickety and difficult to grasp metal bars since the previous obstacle was the mud pit. Someone had apparently fallen from the top onto their back earlier in the race and been taken to hospital. I would not recommend this race.
Fun but needs work
It was really fun for our first race but there really weren’t many obstacles. There was only one muddy spot as well. Also the ad advertised fee admission but then threw in $15 fee for insurance which I understand but I don't think it should’ve been advertised like that. There were also other charges $5 for the bib $20 for parking once we were there they only accepted cash.
