It’s a new race season, and what better way to kick it off than by running a race that: I have never done before and at a venue that has never hosted an OCR before.

United States Obstacle Course Racing (USOCR) Association was once a bright shining star in the industry promising to unite the sport, elevate safety concerns and offer an excellent insurance package for race organizations. The organization promised it would create a national governing body in which the sport could flourish under in the United States and possibly even Canada*. Co-founders Sam Mansfield and Mark Ballas offered at first the answer to many of the growing pains of the burgeoning sport.
