ORM Best of 2015 Poll

Update:  The results are in!

It’s been another great year for OCR. Sure, there have been some hiccups along the way (PR Fail from Mud Factor?), but the sport and its surrounding industries have been coming together to keep us all climbing over logs, crawling under barbed wire, and running up and down mountains. And usually serving us beer afterwards.

Now it’s time to pick some winners and have your say. Let us know which are your top picks, and give us some predictions as well:

Best Multi Race Series (6 or more races)


Best Season Ending Race


Best "Mom and Pop" Race (3 races or fewer)


Best Swag


Best Event For Kids


How Many Races Did You Do in 2015?

Will you do more/less/same number of races in 2016?

  1. I think Rugged Maniac has more than a few events. There, perhaps, should be a mid-size category for those that have more than a few, but don’t have them in every corner of the world. Believe ABF Mud Run is still going strong.

    1. At least some of these categories are unique and there’s the ability to add your own answers, unlike other polls.

  2. Everyone cries the zeal OLX aren’t allowed in OCR ..: RB9X are the majority … Why is ABF on the wish they come back? Why is CMC 😉 ? These results make me flaccid .. All the spartan junkie sheep

    1. I agree – all the Spartan sheep…BAH! BAH! History has unfortunately shown that people will follow he who speaks the loudest, not necessarily he who is best. Have you seen our government? LOL!

  3. How about teams? I would have liked to have wrote in a vote for Memorial Mudders. Small but meaningful group running “for those who can’t”. Check them out.

    1. Rick. Thanks for checking in. Voting for best team simply becomes everyone on that team voting for themselves. No one votes for a team that they are not on. We sort of see it like you holding a contest in our own house for “best family member”. (But send us a link to the team you are referring to, we will certainly check them out)
