What is an OCR? Do you want to challenge your strength, skills, endurance, speed, and even your mental strength in a lively and exciting way? Then OCR is for you. But what is OCR? OCR is short for Obstacle Course Racing, also known as Mud Run and Adventure Racing. It is a sport that challenges you to defeat your opponents while also conquering a set of obstacles. This is an out-of-the-gym activity where you will run miles on dirt paths, in muddy water, and past semi-insane obstacles.
Let’s see some of the best Training Apparel from MudGear. MudGear produces strong tactical gear for athletes competing in trail running, OCR, and outdoor endurance events.

But there is more to the shoe than just those crazy deep lugs on the boot-like outsole. The Nike MEtconSF is made from materials that won’t absorb water. That means when your feet inevitably do get waterlogged – on your mud run or obstacle course race – you’ll shed the extra water weight as quickly as possible. The upper, insole, and midsole are all made from non-absorbent materials. But, there’s more. See that high elastic leg opening?
