Find Your Strength: The First Obstacle Race On The Olympic Track
We continue the series of materials under the conditional heading “The higher the mountains, the ..”. This time we hasten to please you with the good news that the mountain areas of the Rosa Khutor resort are being mastered not only by trail runners or snowboarders who are about to open the season. For the first time in the Sochi midlands, the Rosa OCR obstacle race will take place, which will meet all international formats and standards.
Sergey Perelygin , one of the strongest obstacle racing athletes in Russia and Europe: “The Rosa OCR race itself is a unique event for our country, because it is held at us for the first time, in real mountains, at a good altitude, and the lack of oxygen is also a kind of obstacle for the participants. The distance will run along the Olympic ski slopes. I think this is a great opportunity to feel the spirit of the past Olympics and be part of the new history of OCR racing. ”

Anyone can join the historic start. To do this, you need to make a choice in favor of one of the offered slots with a distance of 13 km (30+ obstacles) or 7 km (20+ obstacles). The venue will be the Mountain Olympic Village of the Rosa Khutor resort.
Sergey Perelygin: “We will have two distances in the race: 7 km and 13 km. If you know that you have a real Caucasian strength, then participate in 13. If you feel that you still need to drink mineral water, choose 7 ”(smiles).
One of the most common questions among beginners: what to wear for the race? Should you wear clothes for the race, which is not a pity, it can be irretrievably dirty and torn. If possible, it is better to wear compression clothing that covers the body completely, this will protect against minor rubbing and warm in the cold, and also will not hinder movement. You need to wear sneakers with a tread on your feet so that the grip is good and the uphill push is more productive. Sneakers with a smooth sole will bring maximum extreme to the race and make it unpredictable especially on descents and curves. Reebok (Spartan Race line) offers a special collection for obstacle racing and sneakers with water removal.
