Obstacle Running Adventures

Obstacle Running Adventure follows the journey of the MStefano Running team. This team participates in obstacle course races, road running, and everything in between. We strive to push ourselves and others to step outside of their comfort zones and try something new.

Mar 21, 2022

It's pretty clear that OCR has taken a massive hit due to the outbreak of COVID back in 2020 but many were optimistic about a strong return after.  Unfortunately, things still aren't looking much better with low turnouts at many events, race brands rapidly downsizing, and from what we and other friends can vouch for a large hit to podcast listeners.

Robb McCoy from FIT Challenge has won awards from Best of OCR for his role as a race director, his race itself, and for the unique obstacles that are featured in them!  Yet due to the effect of low registrations, it is looking like this almost decade old OCR company will be coming to an end in 2023.

We had him on to talk about what he considered going into making this decision, what he believes it means for the sport of OCR, and his plans moving forward!

Be sure to register for the second to last of their OCRs, follow them on Instagram, and join their community on Facebook.
