Epic Training
A Comprehensive Guide to Obstacle Course Race Training
by Richard Borgatti Jr. View author's profile page

Overview


This book is for everyone who wants to run a healthy race, maybe compete in their age group, but mostly the newer athletes and the coaches that want to teach anyone to get involved with obstacle course racing. These races can change your life. This book is meant to alleviate fear and doubt and give you a plan to conquer a physical and mental challenge, to give you access to something that can be a catalyst of change for you. To awaken something that may be lying deep within, dormant but primal, necessary but hidden. It's a push and a guide into the unknown.

Description


With this book, I hope to bring the world of Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) to more people. And let them know that "Yes, you too, can do these crazy races!" This book is meant to help remove any hesitation or fear of trying an obstacle course race, also called OCR for short. To give proper training advice and an insight into the many layers, distances and people who have conquered an OCR.

This book is meant to help athletes that have become bored with the same old running and fitness routine and may want something different. Something with more than one dimension to it. Obstacle Course Racing has many facets and I hope I can help transition a single sport athlete into this growing hybrid athlete sport.
