OCR Warrior

Share


I am excited to be working on a project with some amazing people in obstacle course racing on a cool new project. Below is a bit about the new project I am working on with some incredible people. Check out the preview above and watch the first full episode 10-minute weekly episode premiers Monday, May 19 at 7:30pm EST on mudrunguide.com/ocr-warrior.

 

OCR Warrior is the first reality show to delve into the world of mud runs and obstacle course races (OCR), made popular by worldwide events such as Warrior Dash, Tough Mudder, and Spartan Race. In 2014, over 2 million athletes of all ages, shapes and sizes – split 50/50% between male and female – will compete in Mud Runs and Obstacle Course races, an action sport genre that will generate well north of 2 billion dollars this year alone.

 

“The sport of OCR is the fastest-growing adventure and endurance activity ever. With millions of competitors signing up for these challenging events, Mud Runs have already passed established sports such as triathlon and even marathons – and done so in less than 5 years. The passion that athletes have shown for OCR’s and Mud Runs is really quite staggering.” Says executive producer and series creator, Brett Stewart.

 

He adds, “I’ve been participating in adventure sports like triathlon and marathons for over a decade, and the moment I participated in my first mud run it changed my perspective on what a real challenge could be – dirty, grueling, competitive, yet extremely fun. We’re capturing all the excitement of these events with OCR Warrior, and millions of viewers will be able to enjoy the sport from their computer and mobile devices worldwide. We strive to expose millions more worldwide to the sport of OCR to have fun, get fit, and fight obesity by getting active!”

 

OCR Warrior is scheduled for (24) weekly episodes in 2014 that will air for free online and mobile devices from mudrunguide.comdirtinyourskirt.com, and ocr.tv starting on Monday, May 15. The series begins filming its first five episodes this Friday, May 3 at Wild Horse Pass Casino in Phoenix, AZ on a course developed by Terrain Mud Run (terrainracing.com). The specially-designed course is a modified version of Terrain’s 6-mile course that is open to the public to register and race on Saturday, May 4, and was created to test the athlete’s strength, stamina, and skill over 10+ obstacles before reaching the finish line.

 

Hosts Brett Stewart and Margaret Schlachter are well-versed on the sport of obstacle racing, both are published authors on the subject and have combined to compete in hundreds of different athletic competitions of all types. Schlachter is an award-winning blogger (dirtinyourskirt.com) and has a passionate following of female athletes; Stewart is the co-founder of Mud Run Guide, (mudrunguide.com) the largest independent website in the world for OCR news, events, and tips.

 

Evan “Rocket” Dollard, a four-time American Ninja Warrior competitor, winner of American Gladiator, and Well-Trained Warrior host has been selected as one of the (4) male competitors that will square off in a head-to-head bracket-style competition, with a $1000 prize purse on the line. Local Phoenix talent will include a husband and wife competing in their own respective events, a Globe HotShot firefighter, and owner of a Mesa OCR training facility.

 

Hope you enjoy this new project!

    • I felt like an addict on the trails this morning when we encountered tons of thimble berries. I could not stop eating them!
::
They look kinda like raspberries at first glance. For years we saw them on the trails and recently Forest learned what they were and that in fact they are edible.
::
It’s fun to combine trail running, foraging, some off trail exploring, and a little sun time all in one adventure with the family.

    • It doesn’t get much better then from forest gathering to dessert in a matter of hours.
::
I spend a lot of time thinking about exercise vs life and how to incorporate the two into one stacked activity.
::
This weekend was the perfect real world example - during our run/hike we stopped and took an hour to gather huckleberries. The movement of Berry picking worked a number of muscles and gave us food for dessert.

When life and workouts mesh into one.
