Obstacle course racing, also known by the acronym OCR, involves any competition where challenges are placed along the competitors’ path. With events sprouting up across the country, obstacle course racing is becoming one of the fastest-growing sports in the U.S. These races are designed to be physically and mentally challenging, and test one’s strength, courage, and endurance. Many of the obstacles used for these events are inspired by those used in military training. Some popular obstacles include climbing up ropes, crawling in mud, and scaling walls.
