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.

Once again, we just had the third New England OCR Expo and it is easily the most involved Mike has been!  In 2020 we were just vendors with a table, last year Mike helped with getting athletes to show up and give short talks.  This year Mike was on the board, attended biweekly meetings for months, and worked to help get more vendors and sponsors out to the event!

We are splitting up content from this event into two so we can have an easier week next week and Mike can focus on his own race but in this part two you will hear from some athletes, the  speeches, and from some of the staff that made this all possible!  (see below)

We hope to get registration going for next year's event soon so we hope to see you there in 2025!
