OCR 

My Muddy Valentine

Date: Feb 10, 2018
Distances: 5K 

Think of the stories you'll tell your grandkids - we met at an obstacle course race... Alright, maybe that's a bit far-fetched, but an OCR is a great way to spend a day with your friends, loved ones, significant others, blind dates. The race travels over 5k and features 21+ obstacles, chip timing, music, bonfires, changing rooms, and a lot of mud. You get to keep the t-shirt, toast the end of the race with either a mimosa, cider, or beer, check your timing, and grab some lunch after all is said and done.
