You’ve heard of Spartan Races, Tough Mudder, and the popular TV series Ninja Warrior. They all fall under the umbrella of obstacle course racing, which originates from military training.

The sport gained such a following that, in 2014, the World Obstacle Course Racing Federation was formed as the international governing body.

The goal? Supervise, sanction and hopefully bring obstacle course training to the Olympics.

In this episode, we speak to the President of the World OCR Federation, Ian Adamson. He’s a world record-breaking adventure racer with two decades experience navigating unmarked wilderness courses for weeks-long races.

In this discussion, you’ll discover:

  • The history of obstacle training, its roots in the military and why it’s growing so explosively
  • Ian’s most interesting stories as an adventure and obstacle course racer
  • Ian’s nutrition recovery and training strategies
