Those other fifty weeks are the reason that the small independent obstacle race series are critical to the longevity of obstacle racing in North America and beyond. FIT Challenge in Cumberland, Rhode Island is one such event filling the gaps for the obstacle racing enthusiast. The event started in by OCR enthusiast Robb McCoy has continued to be a premier event in New England.
F.I.T. Challenge has been on the New England scene for a few years now. The popular local series offers both spring and fall versions of its race and recently held their sixth event. I've missed the last few races in the series but based on the glowing reviews from previous events, I was excited to see how they've grown and improved.
The obstacle racing season is officially in full swing! With races happening all over the United States and beyond over the weekend below are the top results from some of the races around the country.
