The goal of OCR Everest is threefold:
1. Raise for the charity Infinite Hero Honor Foundation, which provides physical and mental support to veterans.
2. Raise the publicity and awareness for Obstacle Course Racing.
3. A personal challenge.
How are you going to reach the height of Everest?
Evan will multi-lap the normal Tough Mudder venue during normal business hours at Tough Mudder New England on June 4 and 5th. Overnight, he will likely be ascending/descending a smaller portion of the mountain and doing obstacles that have been cleared by the staff to keep things safer.
Where and when is the event?
Can I come and watch?
Yes! Tough Mudder sells spectator passes. This is a normal Tough Mudder event so to access the festival area you will have to buy a spectator pass from Tough Mudder. To pace Evan during normal TM venue hours, you will need to sign up for Tough Mudder New England.
How long is this going to take and will he be using the 5k, 10k or 15k?
Will I be able to keep up if I decide to pace him?
How can I help?
Evan jumps back into an episode sharing why he's been absent he talks Tough Mudder's Infinite Hero Honor Challenge, how the Navy SEAL o course compares to Special Forces/Ranger/Air Assault, updates from Hannibal Race, his new book On Endurance details, his opinions on GoRuck Games, Mythic Race shout out and more.
Plus, a announcement for 2022's charity event OCR Everest taking place at Tough Mudder New England June 4-5, 2022. Come out and pace, donate to the cause or join the virtual event.

Starting with OCR America back in 2016, Evan Perperis has been putting his body through insane ultra OCR challenges every year in order to fundraise, and see what he is capable of!
This year it was OCR Everest where he ascended the elevation of Mount Everest (29,029 feet) while taking on Tough Mudder obstacles at their New England event in Stratton, VT!
We had him on the call to discuss how the event went, how people can continue to help with the fundraiser, more information about his new book, and much more!
Be sure to donate, check out his books, and also keep an eye on what he is doing with the Battle of the Lions Pro Team!

How can I help?
What about the race?
Part of this event includes a virtual portion. The virtual competition can be done anytime between June 22nd and July 23rd.
Here is how to participate:
2. Do a virtual version on your own.
Start the event off by doing doing 4x Obstacles
Repeat x6 (Run 500 ft. of elevation gain (can be on a treadmill, section of road/trail). The elevation gain is what is important, not the actual mileage you cover. Do 4x obstacles.)
Cumulative total is 28 obstacles and 2,,902.9 feet of elevation gain. You must do the obstacles every 500 feet. You can't run all the elevation then do all the obstacles or vice-versa.
3. Post on social media and tag Strength & Speed (Facebook @Strength & Speed or Instagram @StrengthSpeed) when you start your event. Tag Strength & Speed at the conclusion (this helps get the word out about the fundraiser).
4. Email your results to Evan@teamstrengthspeed.com (include your time and a picture).
