May always brings us Rat race dirty weekend
billed as the longest OCR in the world
heres what members of our Facebook group thought of it
Heres the guide to the scores
1- Expectations Not Met
2- It is exactly as it says on the Tin
3- Better Than I Thought
4- one of the Best OCR I have done
Graham Wells 4 - it lived up to the hype, best and biggest OCR I have ever done. Great atmosphere and incredibly fun. Although if I have to go through another net again.
Paul Ocr Cocksedge Solid 2 as always,
Great event and set up Jim has with RRDW. Registration easy and lots of familiar faces, superb village and extra large beer tent this year added, course was slightly different with a few new bits which is always good to see, did see a lot of people course cutting though which is a shame and the amount of litter on course is disgusting. If you can carry it out there then carry it back.
Seeing used gel wrappers within a mile of the finish takes the piss. There were plenty of bins at pit stops and around so no Excuse really.
Marshals were amazing as always, helpful and encouraging.
Afterparty is always a blast and the Killers tribute were superb followed by DP/MOS.
Already booked for next year as throughly enjoy the whole weekend.
Gemma Avery 2/3 - I enjoyed it, but wouldn’t run it again. I did what I wanted and did a few obstacles, I thought I wouldn’t. Great weekend as a whole though with my ocr Family. That I would go back for.
Dave Murray 3 - My first RRDW so I’d hyped myself up a lot. It didn’t disappoint in any single aspect. Great course, yet achievable for the vast majority with some determination. Big obstacles, super easy registration and camping, great atmosphere. Already thinking of the season pass again for next year. Well done Rat Race
Rodrigo Portaz 2.5 I've done the course before so i knew what was coming. Improvements i would suggest are
1 - some lettered rows for the parking. Would make it easier to find your car.
2 - Premium Parking option, i'd value that a lot more than things like a hot tub etc...
Donna Fox 2/3
Great event great course great Marshall’s events village etc only gripe was the showers 14 for the women 48 !! For the men and their tent was heated 🤔 the ladies wasn’t ....
apart from that it was a blast
Jason Thompson 4 the daddy of all OCR, from the marshals to the obstacles to the after party it’s just all good.
Katy Aggus 2 I enjoyed it. One too many net crawls (boring)
Could rat race not use single use bottles? The waste was ridiculously and I don't think most runners drank the whole bottle which meant a lot of it went to waste! Smaller bottles or cups a better idea?
Robert David Pickles 4 for me, third time at RRDW first time doing the double, awesome atmosphere, well run event, some pretty fun big obstacles and the Marshalls were excellent on both laps which is a long day!
So there you have it, a complete mixture of reviews
