Summer is in full swing, and we hope you're feeling the excitement building up for the upcoming Myrtle Beast OCR Race on August 19th! It's time to kick your training into high gear and prepare yourself for an epic challenge that will push your limits and leave you with unforgettable memories.


Here are some key highlights and tips to help you make the most of your preparations:

  1. Train Smart, Train Strong: With just a few weeks remaining, focus on both strength and endurance training. Incorporate functional movements, interval training, and obstacle-specific exercises into your routine. Don't forget to balance your training with proper rest and recovery to avoid injuries.

  2. Master the Obstacles: Familiarize yourself with the obstacles you'll encounter on race day. Study their techniques, watch tutorial videos, and practice them whenever possible. Remember, knowledge and skill are your allies in conquering any challenge that comes your way.

  3. Gear Up for Success: Make sure you have the right gear for the race. Invest in comfortable and moisture-wicking clothing that allows freedom of movement. Don't forget sturdy shoes with excellent traction. Prepare a hydration pack to stay hydrated throughout the course.

  4. Mental Toughness Matters: OCR is not just a test of physical strength; it's a mental battle as well. Build mental resilience by visualizing yourself successfully completing the obstacles and conquering each mile of the race. Stay focused, maintain a positive mindset, and embrace the challenge with determination.

  5. Pre-Race Nutrition: Fuel your body with nutritious foods that provide sustained energy. Prioritize whole grains, lean proteins, fruits, and vegetables. Stay hydrated and avoid heavy or unfamiliar meals close to race day.

  6. Know the Course: Study the obstacle list and any new obstacles. Understanding the course layout will give you a strategic advantage and help you plan your energy and pace accordingly.

  7. Get Excited, Stay Motivated: Share your journey on social media, connect with fellow racers, and build a supportive community. Use hashtags like #MyrtleBeastOCR and #UnleashTheBeast to join the conversation and inspire others. The race day atmosphere will be electrifying, so feed off that energy and let it fuel your determination!


As race day approaches, remember that your hard work, dedication, and preparation will meet the opportunity for success at the Myrtle Beast OCR Race. Embrace the challenge, push your limits, and experience the thrill of crossing that finish line!
