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.

Last weekend was massive for the sport of OCR in Europe!  There was both Spartan European Championship as well as OCR European Championships.  We followed the latter more closely and were excited to find a guest to come on the show and talk about it.

Jesse de Heer finished first for the short course, second on the standard course, and his team Hang On placed first for the men's relay race!  Having a pretty excellent finish in all events we figured that he would be a great guest to have on the show to talk about their events!

We discuss the 3 band penalty system used, how it felt to take second to a teammate, strengths and weaknesses of European OCR, an overly complicated rule book, the seperation of Spartan and other OCR athletes, and much more!

You can also hear more from Jesse and his teammate Stijn on a recent episode of Obstacle Racing Media here too!
