More and more obstacle racers are including Crossfit as a prominent part of their fitness training. Now, the gap between OCR and Crossfit becomes ever smaller as one of the events at the 2017 Crossfit Games will include an obstacle course race. Dave Castro explained on Instagram this week that the Games have included various fitness obstacles before, but never in the form of a “custom designed obstacle course.”
After seven years at the StubHub Center in Carson, California, the 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games will relocate to the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin, August 3 – 6.
Crossfit recently gave a sneak peak of the custom obstacle course in a couple of competitive demonstration videos.
