Which Says ‘Cranky Bastard’ Best?
I have a ton of fun writing the Cranky Bastard editorial column at Obstacle Racing Media, and while I realize I’m opinionated, schizophrenic, and not nearly as funny as I think I am, the column has proven to be a really great way to generate discussion in our community.
Whether you agree or disagree with my views on OCR culture, my goal is to entertain you while also making you think. I strongly encourage engagement with Cranky Bastard articles as I do not pretend to speak for the community as a whole. You all have your own views, and Cranky is a great place to express yourself.
Trust me, people are reading, and your perspective will be heard.
Now, Want A Free Race?
It’s with all this in mind that I ask you, the readers, to help me select a logo, and maybe, you’ll win a free race. We will give away one free OCR race, randomly, from the comments below, so use your real email! (and no, we won’t spam you. spam blows.)
Here’s how to be considered for a free race:
- See the logo sheet of possible Cranky Bastard logos above
- In the comments below, please share your favorite, and why
- To win, you must have also give a reason for your choice. Can’t just say, “the dog”
- Facebook responses don’t count. We need one place for which to review responses.
- Your choice does not affect your ability to win, so say whatever you want (cleanly, of course)
Thanks, and good luck. We will select a winner Wednesday, August 28, 2013.

No, I’m not a mud runner. I am an obstacle racer.
Yes, it matters; and yes, there is a difference.
I love the sport, love racing and love being part of this fast-growing community we call obstacle course racing, but I can’t help but pick out everyday examples that I find odd, inconsistent or contrary to the true vibe of the sport of OCR, as I see it.
Cranky Bastard articles are full of arrogance, elitest, prima donna attitude, but hopefully, plenty of points to make those in our community think, and perhaps drive change where change is needed.
