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.

Mike finally traveled to New York to participate in and cover Obstacle Wonderland's Boogie Wonderland Event!

Wanting to both support a small northeast race and get some good mileage in, Mike registered for the 6 hour race.  He ran 3 laps, interviewed the 3 hour finisher athletes with some midrace brain fog, ran another lap, interviewed the 6 hour finisher athletes while freezing in the windy cold on and off rain, the DJ, Gabe Capobianchi, Asa Coddington, and then recorded a personal recap while driving back to New Jersey!

We highly recommend you check out an Obstacle Wonderland event, the Northeast Ultra OCR Cup put together by Viking OCR, and come to the New England OCR Expo adding the virtual run for an awesome medal!
