This Month's Races
Mud Sweat & Beers is moving from Wagga to Gundagai in 2014. And as this is still the closest event to the halfway point between Sydney and Melbourne we are challenging all NSW and VIC Obstacle Racers to put their hand up to represent their home state in a little bit of State Of Origin funsies...

Once upon a time in Australia there were one or two Obstacle Course Races held every year. These events grew at an alarming rate, and started drawing thousands of tough warrior types who enjoyed the chance to pit their speed and endurance against the various climbing, clambering and crawling challenges, or those who just enjoyed getting out there and having a giggle.
Soon, another Obstacle Course Race popped up to take advantage of the demand. Then another. Then large international races started looking at our Australian shores. Then some event organisers started looking at the beaches and inner city streets to put up some obstacles and let competitors have a go at it in a different setting.
So here at Obstacle Racers we thought it might be an idea to have one website that keeps track of all the various races around Australia - where and when they are held, an overview of that particular event, and maybe even a review or two from participants who have taken part on that course so you know which ones best suit your particular strengths and which ones have room for improvement.
As obstacle course racing grew, we thought the old website needed a revamp to cater better to news and articles and stuff - and so we reworked the site to be more than just a directory but Australia's first obstacle course racing online magazine!
