The 2023 Grit OCR: East Walker Ranch race have two race courses, our longer and more challenging Claw race, and our short and easier Fang race.


For our Claw race, we are extending our signature course to be longer with more technical trail running and obstacle challenges to give you the ultimate Grit OCR challenge that is guaranteed to test your strength and endurance to the next level!


Not everyone is ready for the Claw challenge, so for our Fang race we trim the course and reduce obstacles to make the race a little bit shorter and easier, but don't worry, you will still need to train to get through all our signature obstacles and trails!


Run through a trail course at East Walker Ranch, taking you up the foothills, on the ridgelines with amazing panoramic views, and into the valleys with obstacles at key locations to take your race experience to the next level. You will love the trails!


Running the trail course is difficult on its own, now add in a variety of challenging obstacles that will physically and mentally push you to your limit, testing your strength and endurance. You will overcome each obstacle!


Enjoy the Grit OCR festival all day with your teammates, friends, and family. Watch participants going through course obstacles on the big screens in the beer garden, enjoy food and other Grit activities while jamming out your favorite music. You will have an awesome time!

This isn't a gimmicky mud run, Grit OCR is out to push you harder and make you stronger.



Grit OCR is more than just a race. It's about the courage and resolve to push above and beyond your limits. Setting personal goals and crushing them, pushing yourself hard to beat the course and obstacles. It's about the teamwork, friendship, and the awesome people you meet at the race. It's about making you a better and stronger person. You will become stronger!
