Obstacle Innovation & the Evolution of OCR with Matt B. Davis and Adam Kwitko


For this week's episode, I hosted my first round table discussion all about obstacle innovation, how OCR and various OCR brands have evolved over the year, and what 2018 might look like for the sport. I brought in OCR journalist Adam Kwitko and Matt B. Davis of Obstacle Racing Media to go over these topics based on their years of experience and coverage of the sport.

We talk a lot about Tough Mudder and it's decision to go down the competitive road, and other changes they made in 2017. We also discuss other changes and new race formats in OCR, and Matt and Adam reminisce about the early years of obstacle course racing.

Another big topic of discussion is standardization: the pros, the cons, who likes it, and who doesn't, and what it means for the sport.

Adam also takes the opportunity to interview Matt and myself about being OCR podcasters, and the three of us discuss OCR and the media.
