What is Swamp Battle OCR?
Swamp Battle OCR is an Obstacle Course Race set in the beautiful North Florida landscape. Think of a trail run with fun obstacles, some water, and a little bit of mud. The distance will be around 3 miles with 30 obstacles. We strive for more fun than run!
Will this be too hard for me?
Heck no! We have created a fun course for ALL skill and fitness levels. This is a fantastic first-time race for those wanting to try OCR. Scared of running? Walk! Unable to complete an obstacle? Go around it! Unless you are in the competitive wave, there are no penalties for omitting obstacles. The most important goal is for everyone to have fun!
How do I know my heat start time?
We will post and email heat times by 3/17. Check your email or click back on the website and follow the popup instructions.
What is the cost of parking?
$10 CASH per carload. Feel free to pile in and save!
What kind of obstacles are there?
We aim to please with a wide variety of challenges ranging from simple dirt ditches and hills to rigs, monkley bars, and a few surprises. Seasoned OCR runners will find some old favorites and new ideas that challenge the mind as well as the body. If you can climb crawl, carry, throw, and swing you will be right at home!
How should I train?
You can come as you are and do your best (no one will fault you for it) but if you want to really test yourself against the course we recommend regularly running 5K distance for time while supplementing with some plyometric, strength, and cardio in the gym. Grip strengthening with some jumping and climbing is always helpful.
Can I run as an individual?
Yes , you can run as an individual or as a team! Create a team and have your friends register to run with you!
Is this race timed?
Yes, you will pick up your timing chip when you check in that morning. Run for time or just have FUN!
What will there be to do in the festival area?
We will have a coach on hand to help with rope climbs and the multi rig obstacles. As well as hourly competitions with prizes for the winners (male and female).
What is involved in the kid’s race?
The kid’s race will be approximately one mile with age appropriate obstacles. Kids aged 5-13 can run. There will be separate heats for ages 5-8 and 9-13. The cost is $25. They will receive a t-shirt and medal for completion. This is not a timed race.
