The P.T BARN  Autumn/Winter
Time Trial

OCR IS BACK!


Head down to The P.T Barn and take on our Spring/Summer Time Trial Course

We are excited to announce that The P.T Barn Time Trials are back with our Autumn/Winter edition!

 

After all the incredible feedback from our Spring/Summer Time Trial we have decided to bring them back for this Autumn/Winter! During the winter there is limited chances to get your OCR fix through races, so this will help keep your training focused by giving you targets to aim towards and give you a rough idea of your obstacle fitness.

 

The course will follow a similar concept to our Spring/Summer T.T. It will be focused around Obstacle Fitness with chances to test your Obstacle Techniques with challenging but achievable technical obstacles. We will keep the course on the Wood Chip to make the running sections all weather. The more technical obstacles will also be under the Sheltered Area. This will encourage people to still come and put the course to the test, even if the weather doesn’t look as good.

Expect a fast, varied, well balanced, achievable course which will leave all abilities swimming in acid by the end!

 

We have made a few changes to the format with Fast Lane/Slow Lane options on two of the Rigs. Expect more technically/strength sapping Fast Lanes for the Ninjas who want to take risks. The Slow Lanes will naturally take longer but require less technique/strength for those who want to play it safer and go ‘Clear Round’.

 

We also love it when athletes like smoothing out the course and taking chances for those time saving moves/transitions. The course has been designed with exactly this in mind and we look forward to seeing how the athletes navigate their way around the course.

 

The plan is to run this Autumn/Winter 2021 Time Trial Course from Saturday 25th September until Saturday 26th February.
