October? More like OCRtober for The Crew! When talking to any of our members, they will tell that Fall is more than Ugg® boots, flannels, and pumpkin spice lattes; it's our busy season. October, idled between a humid summer and a bitter winter, promises to never easily be forgotten. Athletes participated in many challenges, and here are some of the biggest highlights brought to you by the one and only Crew OCR.

For the first time, The Crew OCR formed a full team to participate in the Ragnar Trail Wawayanda Lake held in Wawayanda State Park, NJ. The team fell into the male division due to the composition (mixed teams had to have an equal gender split of 4 men and 4 women). Ragnar is a unique trail race. This particular race separates itself from other races by requiring it's participants to run at night with the aid of headlamps, glow sticks, flashlights, and blinkers to illuminate the challenging terrain under the moonlight. Each athlete was responsible to handle 3 separate legs, totaling approximately 15 miles, in a relay fashion where the team bib had to be handed off among runners. The Crew finished with a respectable 4th place in the male division of all finishing teams.

The Crew bleeds Goliathon, quite literally sometimes. This event is always a favorite. When the Crew rolls up to any of the 12 obstacles, we leave an impression! Encouragement is brought to a new level as we push ourselves outside our comfort zone with the unique challenges provided by Goliathon. Aside from the challenging difficulty and choices this event presents, the best part is it's non-profit goals. Every year Goliathon takes the money generated from it's events with a purpose to bring clean drinking water to third world counties. All monies given to this company go toward it's production and making the world a better place for those less fortunate. The Crew OCR managed to swing into 4th place as a team. We look forward to Goliathon XI in the summer of 2019!

The OCR World Championships share our passion, as well as our love for green! OCRWC swapped it's venue this year from Canada to London. The distance didn't stop 2 crew members from making the trip across the big pond to England to participate in the biggest race in the OCR business. Derek and Chrissi found themselves face to face with an unprecedented 100 obstacle 15k course and a shorter, but fast and intense 3k course. OCRWC was crafty this time around with a new venue, eager to put it's name on the map to all racers. The 3k race was designed to give racers a false sense of security for the longer 15k race the following day. The 3k course was fast, and presented a deceiving amount of ease in it's obstacles. Deception that was learned the next day when the 15k course did everything in it's power to take athletes out of their comfort zone. The first quarter of the race had participants crawl through thick natural mud pits and plungedracers into freezing water from a massive slide. It's hard to prepare for such race conditions, and OCRWC definitely made everyone earn crossing the finish line.
