Excellent Race!

The Driven Games in Dahlonega was a great experience for my son and I. The format was a lot of fun and different from most other races. The course was brutally hilly but also beautiful with numerous waterfalls (and creek crossings). The obstacles were straight forward and were things that someone could complete without much previous OCR experience. There were no gratuitous mud baths just there to make for cheesy photo-ops. The push/pull/carry section of the race was appropriately difficult to tax the competitors but not prevent them from finishing the race. I feel that it was a good test to find the fittest competitors, which is what you really want in an OCR or any race. We will definitely be looking for more Driven races in the future!
