Come one, come all! We are pumped to announce that we will be hosting a (non-sanctioned) Obstacle Course Race this year!
Why an Obstacle Course Race, you ask?
Other than, “this should be fun!” there was some other thought that went into our decision to organize this event in 2020. Mainly:
- Many people who had signed up for a Spartan Race or other OCR this year had their races canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
- Our OCR crew at the Round Lake location is as strong as ever, staying connected and pushing each other throughout the past few months, and becoming better as a result. Some of our Guilderland athletes have joined in on the fun lately, too! We want to honor their effort!
- We have a new OCR head coach, Zephyr! And Zephyr is a go-getter, with lots of ideas and energy that he’s infusing right into the OCR program!

RACE FORMAT: We will be running a “Sprint” Course (5km) as well as a “Super” Course (10km). Both will have plenty of obstacles including climbing walls, heavy carries/pushes, spear throws, trail running, and more!
We will be adding details weekly to this posting, so stay tuned for more as we get closer to the event!
Sounds Great! How do I sign up?!
We’re so glad you asked 🙂
Aevitas Members – your entry is 100% free! We’re asking that you just fill out the Google form HERE to claim your spot!
Along with your free registration, we are allowing our athletes a PLUS ONE registration free of charge as well! Please indicate your plus one on the form (name and email), and we will send them an invite. Since we will most likely need to cap the attendance of this event, we will be sending out the “plus one” invites after the registration has been open to Aevitas members for a few days.
Race for A Cause
Stay tuned for details!
NOTE: we are working with our Aevitas Community Action Committee on the possibility of contributing to a local charity with this event.
There are some questions in the registration survey about your willingness to contribute. Please note that until we land on the actual cause AND confirm with you, you will not be charged. The questions are merely to gain insight into who would like to potentially contribute!
