How many obstacle course races are there? Many! Maybe even too many to track now.
This directory is a work in progress. When I originally started the list September of 2011, there were less than 30 races listed. By mid-2012, there were more than 50. Now, there are easily hundreds of OCR and mud run organizers.
Right now the directory includes national and regional OCRs based in the U.S. I’ll be updating it regularly and soon to include international races, but if there’s a race you know of that’s missing and you know the distance and number of obstacle courses for it, let me know.
