Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) is about being prepared with a broad skill-set and the strength to handle a range of obstacles and challenges, both physical and mental. Get training with the OCR Challenge then race with me and the team at the Spartan Race. Be ready to compete and excel at one of the most challenging obstacle course races Australia has to offer – Spartan Race Sprint in Picton, Sydney.
Every Saturday for the next 5 weeks we are training up for OCR. Over the 5 weeks, whether you are a novice or advanced, you will be encouraged to achieve new goals and will be challenged as each week becomes progressively harder. The program brings together the benefits of high intensity physical training with the skills required in an Obstacle Course Race (OCR). The sessions cover skill and technique refinement, hill runs at Cronulla dunes and national park trail running aimed at promoting cardio fitness and strength. Training focuses on the skills you will encounter and overcome in OCR including such things as rope climbs, traverse rope, heavy dead ball carry, sled drags and a host of others.This is a highly motivating and fun way to challenge yourself with an OCR tailored program.
