Obstacle course races (OCRs) are taking the fitness world by storm with their combination of varied terrain, changes in elevation and climate, and, of course, seemingly torturous obstacles. For CrossFitters who pride themselves in training for the unknown, there is certain synergy to these types of races. Like a challenging WOD, the race course is varied, requiring participants to dig deep, ignore pain, and face fear as they move through the obstacles.
As with CrossFit, power and strength are key, but so, too, is technique. Weaknesses are quickly exposed; there is no place to hide. Just as CrossFit is replacing traditional commercial gym training, the newest versions of obstacle course racing are edging out their more conservative cousins such as triathlons.
