OCRmill 24 2019

OCRmill 24 is a 24 hour charity run conducted by Conquer The Gauntlet Pro Evan Perperis at Conquer Fitness in Tulsa, OK the weekend of February 23-24, 2019.  The event will be run the same weekend as the Conquer The Gauntlet Pro Team Takeover of Conquer Fitness for 2019.

For OCRmill 24, Evan will run 1 mile on a treadmill then do 4 obstacles and repeat this process for 24 hours to raise money for the charity Folds of Honor.

While this sounds horrible for Evan, there are workouts, pro tips, lunch, ninja competitions and after party planned for those coming to the event, making it fun for all (except Evan).
