Kid's Race Opens
Last opportunity for racers to begin.
Race HQ breakdown.
In case you don't know just yet, we are not like other races! We are not a business, we'll never wear a tie, and we won't say the right things. Our main goal is NOT to make money, rather we want to bring people together through fitness to create a sober community.
That being said, here's some "official" important stuff for the race.
Due to our safety procedures, we will not be having a separate packet pickup before race day.
All runner packets will be distributed on race day beginning at 7:30 am.
Your packet will include your t-shirt (if you haven't received one yet), bib, and even some swag!
This race will be 100% chip-timed!
Woah now, lower your standards - there's guaranteed to be some hiccups. We appreciate your patience, we will do our best to resolve any issues!
You must wear your bib to receive a time!
There will be a disposable tag on each runner's bib. The bib must be worn in the front, please.
We are able to start chip timing thanks to our amazing sponsors. I cannot say it enough! More on them below!
The race will begin at 8:00 am, and participants will be allowed to start the OCR at any point between 8:00 am and 10:00 am. There will be an official start at 8:00 am.
We will have a "rolling start" with five runners leaving every two minutes to minimize course interactions.
You are more than welcome to begin at any time though.
The course will be very well marked, but we will not have any roads blocked off. While we have done our best to avoid intersections, please be very cautious when crossing intersections.
For the OCR, the course will be mostly on the roads, but will at times divert into unimproved areas. Just follow the signs! Twice the course will intersect itself... again, just follow the signs.
There will be over 20 AMAZING obstacles along the 2-3 mile course to challenge you towards believing you are capable of more than you have ever thought. Each obstacle will have directions. Some obstacles will be mandatory complete obstacles, meaning that you must keep trying until you have completed the obstacle. Other obstacles will have alternate movements for completion, but you MUST overcome your fear and try!
There will not be a volunteer at every obstacle; follow the directions and feel free not to participate if you feel the obstacle is beyond your abilities (but remember, you can do WAY more than you think!)
Don't be afraid - every obstacle has different levels for completion and will be color-coded.
Orange = Hard
White = Harder
Blue = What are you trying to prove?
There will be a FREE kids race for anyone who wants to participate! Bring your little ones and get them moving! Every kid that finishes will get an awesome prize, free snow cones, a medal and t-shirt (while they last).
If you haven't registered online (still for free) then make sure you check in before heading out on the kid's course.
Did someone say SNOWCONES?!?
We will have food and beverages at Race HQ - you certainly earned as much as you want! Please throw away your trash; we will have trash bags available.
A huge shout-out to Buda's very own A Snowball's Chance! Make sure you check out their secret menu on their instagram!
Results & Awards
There will be no awards for the OCR. If you finish, you win.
Awards will be continued for our remaining two "traditional" races of the series.
Results will be posted on this page within 48 hours.
Last, and most important, please remember that we are trying to minimize risks associated with COVID-19.
When running, do not cluster together. We will have hand sanitizer available in multiple areas, please use as much as you would like.
Each obstacle WILL NOT be sanitized between each use. Only attempt an obstacle when you feel able and safe to do so.
Remember, we are able to put this event on because we are a small, community-oriented race. We will not have the resources that a larger race will, but we certainly guarantee an in-person event, done safely, through which you can push yourself and achieve what you once thought impossible!
Don't forget, this is just the beginning! Commit, train, and enjoy the series! We are so glad you're apart of this with us!
