• In a era of more widespread sedentary and domesticated lifestyle than ever, OCR is the fastest growing sport in the world, with over 30 countries and over 15 million people world wide getting in touch with their wild side, their child within, and rejecting the box of conventional "cardio" and boring exercise, for whole mind and body primal play. People of all ages, abilities, fitness and experience levels are participating.

• Many find their first race to be a life changing experience, becoming newly empowered by what they are capable of, finding new excitement for pursuing health and fitness beyond conventional gyms and road running, to really get physical with nature and explore their full range of natural movement and mental grit.

• Conversely, some elite athletes from other sports are humbled by how difficult it OCRs can be, discovering the weaknesses in their training, and finding new inspiration to take on the challenge of becoming a more well- rounded and sustainable athlete.

• No doubt, it is an exciting sport! However, with this widespread participation, uneven terrain, and varied physical demands that are often omitted from popular training approaches and new to even elite athletes-- there is also major increased risk of injury.

• Therefore, there is a disproportionate need vs. supply and awareness for training and education opportunities to specifically prepare individuals for Obstacle Course challenges. Hopefully this group with help to bring more balance.
