"OCRWC is THE event of the year! All other races are just to prepare you for the most epic experience, and OCRWC WILL deliver that one race, with a standard above everyone else."
"The team races bring a one-of-a-kind energy to the weekend that reminds me of racing with my Rice Track & Field team in college. Obviously I’m a little biased since the tough obstacles cater to my strength as a rock climber, but I think they offer a fun and challenging variety."
"OCRWC has something so many others lack: heart. I can now claim many friends and friendly acquaintances on 6 of the 7 traditional continents! All of them met at or via OCRWC."
