In the first weekend of September, the best Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) athletes gathered from across America to a small town outside of San Antonio, Texas. I knew this was a no miss event so took the trip out to run in the 15k. If you didn’t make it to the first ever US OCR Championship, here is what you missed.
The US OCR Championships kicked off its second day of racing this morning with a 15-kilometer grueling course through the Texas Hill Country. The day was highlighted with wins by Nicole Mericle and Hunter McIntyre and Operation Enduring Warrior heat.
It is time for first independent US OCR Championships happening this weekend at Y.O. Ranch Headquarters in Mountain Home, Texas. The festivities kick off at the ranch on Friday evening with a welcome dinner before jumping into action with the 3K short course on Saturday and 15K long course on Sunday.
