    Things that I learned as a first time runner was to wear the right shoes!!! This was a huge help for me as I ran the course. And training for the event helped me mentally and physically prepare for the race. Also having a great team to help push me through the course.

    Hands down one of my favorite races! Antonio and the crew do such an amazing job at making sure everyone involved…from racers, volunteers and spectators have the best experience ever. This race is great as a started OCR for someone who wants to experience OCR for the first time…But is also perfect for an Elite racer who is chasing the podium. Can’t wait till the next one!!

    The trails were painfully awesome with that elevation gain. If you like to be challenged the new obstacles will definitely do that & more. These obstacles weren’t the same boring obstacles you see in other races. They really have me excited for the next one & thinking about how to prepare/train. I’m definitely going to be running every race they have.

    I have been running GRIT since the beginning. Every year has been better than the previous year. This was by far the best and only expect it to get better. It is for real and not just some walk in the park. Obstacles are different and creative. Love it and will you.

    The venue is amazing. Challenging. Fast paced, heavy carries, and great views. The Flaming Legs obstacle is a killer.
    I would only like to see more swings, monkey bars type of obstacles. We only had one this year. Outside of that, this is my favorite obstacle race and it is a very well put together race. Aid stations are also best out there with a lot of variety

    after 15 months of hiatus, GRIT OCR delivered in both having fun and very challenging obstacles. i really didn’t know what to expect as this was my first race with them. needless to say, i’ll surely will be back next year. hopefully this time, a little
    cooler weather. for those that are thinking of trying out an OCR, this has something for everyone and any level of fitness. but the greatest part of this race is how much fun it was running friends and like minded people.

    From very challenging obstacles to one of a kind obstacles (3 mile ruck!) this race has everything you are looking for! The field is competitive for those who want to push themselves. And for first timers, you can sign up with your friends as a team and run the course while helping each other.
    They always have great volunteers and well stocked aid stations.

    Such a great race! I would definitely train for this race. It’s a lot up uphills and just be prepared to drink a ton of water the day before. So much detail goes into this race and it’s absolutely amazing. They also take amazing photos of you at every course.

    The people are always encouraging and super friendly. The vibe of everyone around you is contagious. The only complaint it 2 volunteers were less than nice. Which isn’t really their fault, everyone has bad days but one of them was the first person I came in contact with and it just leaves a bad taste at the start but once I got into the whole race area the vibes and people were AMAZING!!

    Missed the inaugural 2018 race, proud to now be legacy runner. This race gets better every year! With the addition of a second race day, flipped course, and new obstacles Grit OCR continually innovates and keeps the experience fresh. I wish other brands would mimic the flipped course on day two. It becomes an entirely NEW race! Great job from course design to obstacle order and innovation. Can’t wait for next year.

    I was intimidated going into this race being that it was my first race. I was worried about the obstacles but I had trained well for them. There were pre-race videos describing the obstacles and how to accomplish them properly. That helped for my training.
    The course was set up very professionally and in a fun way. The course itself was beautiful. The obstacles were a fun way to break up the running.
    The race staff were very fun and motivating.
    I enjoyed myself a lot more than I expected! It was a great day!

    Grit OCR has done it again! The course was challenging and fun from start to finish. Scenic views at every hill climb and decent and obstacle location. The obstacles are new and challenging and differrent from other OCR courses. Well organized and great volunteers and staff. The type of race and experience you look forward to doing again as soon as you cross finish line and get kick ass finisher medal and shirt. Lookin forward to doing Grit OCR again!

    I absolutely love this race and organization. They post on the website what the obstacles are going to be so you can train accordingly. Nice hilly course with has amazing views. Each aid station felt like a party and have great snacks, water, and electrolytes. Great variety of obstacles of lifting, carrying, flipping, climbing, and rolling. The volunteers also give great advance on how to modify or need a tip on how to over come a challenge if you need to.
