The North of 7 OCR Challenge returns to Lennox & Addington on September 9th, and it’s sure to be a challenge for everyone involved. This fantastic Obstacle Course Race (OCR) was a hit when it debuted in 2022, and will be sure to put participants’ endurance to the test again this year.
Set among the backdrop of Canadian Shield wilderness just north of Cloyne, the 3km loop offers up a series of natural and man-made obstacles designed to push your physical limits. Challengers will be put through their paces with a tire trek, 7ft wall, log chop, log hurdles, spear throw and much more.
Race organizers Sylvie Manaigre and Mitch Broser from Move Better Health & Performance have experience training all levels of athletes, and have participated in similar events to this in other parts of the province. When they purchased their property at 33 Jacques Bay Road in Cloyne, they knew they had the perfect setting to bring an OCR event to the community.
The North of 7 OCR Challenge is fun way to blend physical training, social activity, and outdoor recreation. Volunteer opportunities are also available.
For those brave enough, there’s also an ‘Endure’ challenge where you can complete as many 3k loops as you can in 2 hours. There’s an event for kids (free with adult registration) and even a special heat for first responders carrying weighted sandbags.
