The founder of this event series is Doug 'The Beard,' Spence. I was quite eager to meet him after watching many of his obstacle tutorials. The video for getting over walls in particular has made a huge difference in my approach to OCR events, saving me energy in using my legs as oppose to my arms. On more than one occasion I've had positive comments from fellow racers on my wall technique. There's also The Beard's technique for getting over the Irish Table which left spectators watching really confused as to what just happened!
So as you can see in the picture below I was just a tad over excited to meet one of the legends of OCR, The Beard.
There are loads of obstacles on this race, but I've just picked a few of the highlights here:
