I’m Never Doing Another….Just signed up for my 4X…. But Why

#OCRUnited, #RaceLocal, #AnyRaceButSpartan you see people posting these types of statements all day long, then promptly followed up with a post the next day with their 6x Trifecta, 10X Legionnaire Headband Plan, etc. That plan never seems to include variety like signing up for quality varieties like Conquer the Gauntlet, Terrain, BattleFrog, BoneFrog or great local OCRs that for most of us are what first brought us into this amazing sport and family.

Some Random War Paint Waldo Thoughts Because I Can 😛

So why are we so brand loyal or variety adverse? Is it the Devil we know over the one we don’t?  Is it fear another Atlas Race or is it not knowing what else is out there to experience? There is a lot of talk about the increasing costs of big series.  I’ve been to a lot of these alternatives, and while they have decent turnout and amazing atmospheres; they could be so much more. The courses and obstacles are high quality and the cost is often $50 less than the big guys, you’d think there would be a mile long back up to get in but there isn’t.

So why? Sound off in the comments section below or on our Facebook page.
