Ultra-OCR Grand Slam 2017

In 2017, Strength & Speed owner Evan "Ultra-OCR Man" Perperis' big goal is to race every 24 hour Obstacle Course Race in the world.  The goal is not only to finish but to do well, hopefully reaching the podium or at least top ten.  This is in addition to a full racing schedule featuring everything from 5k OCRs to 8 hour OCRs.  

1. November 12-13, 2016: World's Toughest Mudder near Las Vegas, NV
     Finished 8th 

2. April 1-2: Terrain Racing Relay 24 near Phoenix, AZ
