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.

Apr 17, 2023

FIT Challenge has been putting on obstacle course races since 2013 and we have been to almost every single one of them over the years (we just missed the very first one and the one during the extreme heat wave the summer of 2019)!

Unfortunately that all comes to an end after this past weekend since it was their final event.  It is the death of the most important New England local OCR that we have had and it also has some backing of that fact with it winning the best small OCR event just about every year that it has been a category.

All that being said I tried to get as much content as I could, to try and give FIT Challenge the send off that it deserves!  You'll hear from those competing in the elite wave, regular open wavers, ultra athletes, and everything in between!

Thank you Robb for everything you've done for the OCR community, I'll see you on the trails!
