Ecoaims & OCR – Obstacle Course Racing

Obstacle course racing (OCR) is a sport known since 1987. In the race competitors, traveling on foot, must overcome various physical challenges known as obstacles. Races vary in length of courses and with level of obstacle difficulty. Courses may include climbing over walls or up ropes, monkey bars, carrying or moving heavy objects, aiming, traversing bodies of water or mud, and jumping through fire. It’s the most versatile sport for sure!

Aiming obstacle for OCR!

Not every race has a laser shooting obstacle, but we can assure you, when we are involved, it’s a real game changer. Calming your nerves, controlling your breathing and pulse in order to successfully aim takes a different type of focus. That’s why we call it a mental obstacle.

World Obstacle, the Fédération Internationale de Sports d’Obstacles (FISO) is the international governing body for obstacle racing and related sports, representing the needs of adventure racers, ninja athletes and obstacle course racers worldwide. It is an independent association consisting of national member federations and their athletes in more than 120 countries.

The sport has grown in popularity and there are more than 2500 events held annually across the world. Ecoaims has been part of several races in the USA and Europe since 2016 supplying the shooting obstacles for the course.
