About you I am a 24-year-old obstacle course racing final year medical student who loves to climb stuff when I am not wearing my “clean” shoes. I took part in my first obstacle race at the end of 2013 and just can’t seem to get enough of it. At the end of 2014, I raced in the elite category for the first time and have managed to keep myself ranked in the top 6 of South Africa’s elite female obstacle racers.
To me, OCR is so much more than just ropes, running and muddy pits – OCR pushes you to your limits and makes you realize that you are capable of so much more when you reach those boundaries. You are only limited to how far your mind can take you…!
