What's Your Race Type?

Looking to take on an obstacle course race of your own? While most OCRs present a combination of running and obstacles, the degree of difficulty (and level of craziness) can vary greatly. Take a look at some of the bigger race series and what you can expect after the starting line.

 

Supersize it

 

Spartan Races come in three sizes: They range from the Sprint (3 miles/20-plus obstacles) to the Super (8 miles/25- plus obstacles) to the Beast (12 miles/30- plus obstacles). For any obstacle that you fail to complete, you have a burpee penalty. (spartan.com)

 

Don’t expect to leave clean.

 

The 10- to 12-mile Tough Mudder is all about getting down and dirty. The “cage crawl" obstacle, for example, tests both physical and mental strength: Competitors lie on their backs and pull themselves through a long water trench, whileunder 60 feet of steel fencing. Teamwork is a must to get through the obstacles and across the finish line. (toughmudder.com)
