Beasts Challenges FAQ
If an Event or Challenge says you need to use 50 lbs but doesn't specify the weight type to use, it is up to you to determine what to use for the weight.
Some ideas for weight types:
- sand bags
- steel shot
- your dog
- your kid(s)
You get the idea. The weight type may have unique issues. Dumbbells can easily shift, same with kids or dogs. Water will be very unstable and require a lot of space. Feel free to get creative.
Most of the events listed on the event pages are in the PNW or adjacent. This is because that's the home base of Beasts OCR.
Local Races is just that, local to where YOU are. If you travel to a different state or country and run in a race that is local (non national, small event), you are there running in that local race. It counts.
If a Beasts OCR team is not listed in a race you are running and you are in the Pacific Northwest, please feel free to create a team with the name of “Beasts OCR”, with two words. If you are outside of the PNW, check the Racing with a Family Team FAQ.
If you are able to set a password, please leave it blank so anyone can join the team. Beasts OCR is an inclusive group. We are open to any and all racers.
