The Farm Strong OCR is a unique farm work inspired challenge course that combines more than a dozen obstacles to create an event like no other. Prepare to get wet, muddy, and have a lot of “fun”! 

The Farm Strong OCR at Waid Park was co-designed by the Spartan SGX Coach Team at Ferguson Fitness and Franklin County Parks and Recreation. It will be held rain or shine on Saturday June 1st at 9:00 am.

The $25.00 registration fee includes the chip timed event and a Farm Strong Logo t-shirts thanks to our title sponsor, James River Equipment Rocky Mount. Awards will be 3 deep for Male and Female categories under 40 and over 40.
