A lot of people might ask this question. Surely there is enough of these race’s in South Africa? We don’t think so, with OCR being the fastest growing sport in the world we believe that there is ample room for more choice of race as well as educating a larger portion of the population regarding the fun that can be had by participating in these type of events. Furthermore we will strive to give you a better experience than the best out there, but at a price that gives you more bang for your buck.
Is the various races timed?
Our 5km race is not timed, the idea is to get you used to obstacle racing and to have fun. Our 10km race is timed and you therefor need to buy a timing chip for R 50.00. This is a once-off cost as you can use this in our future races as well.
How do I enter?
Follow the links on our “ Categories” page to enter. These links will take you to the entry site. Please remember that online entries will close 24 hours before the start of the race. Please remember that we do not do entries on the day of the race at the event.
What if I can’t do an obstacle?
For the 5km race we have introduced what we call the “ Chicken Run” if you are not able to do an obstacle we have a suprise penalty for you, that will allow you to bypass the obstacle. If you are doing the 10km timed race you have to attempt the obstacle if you cant cross it a penalty time will be added to your time. If you refuse to attempt the obstacle you will be disqualified.
Are spectators welcome?
Yes we welcome them with open arms!!. They have to pay a R 30 entrance though. We also set the terrain up in such a way as to be spectator “ friendly”. With beer gardens, outdoor shopping areas & food stalls to entertain them. Most of the high spectator value obstacles are placed strategically close to the main terrain to enable them to watch your bravery.
How many people can enter as a team?
We believe a team shouldn’t become a crowd and have therefor decided to limit a team to 4 individuals. There is however no limit on how many teams from a particular group of friends / family or company enters.
Turning Obstacle’s Into Opportunities - Choosing To Innovate Rather Than To Imitate
Is their a place to stash my valuables?
Yes indeed, we will provide a “ Locker Room” at each of our races where you can rent space to leave all your valuables while enjoying the race with total peace of mind. Cost amounts to R 30.00. Making it easy for you we have included the option to buy your locker space when doing your online entry for the race.
Do you have shower / change room facilities?
At each of our races their will be shower facilities as well as seperate men’s and women change rooms. We will do our utmost to ensure these areas are of a good quality.
Do I need cash on the terrain?
