#Racelocal is BACK!
What is #racelocal?
Entering it’s 5th year, #racelocal exists to showcase the amazing obstacle course racing community we have here in the New England region. From family friendly charity races, to weekend long endurance events – we’re fortunate to live in a hot bed of obstacle course races, and we want to motivate you to expand your horizons and try more events.
Nationally recognized as the leading “support local” OCR program.
UPDATE – as of May 2018, #racelocal is offered as part of the New England Spahtens annual membership! Along with your #racelocal swag, you get all the benefits of membership too! 10% off everything in the store!
How does it work?
We work with Race Directors and list all participating events below. You run those races, then come home and log your finish. We ship you your awards and prizes through the year. The more races you run, the more points you earn, the more prizes you get! Wether you are competitive, or simply running for fun, our points and prizes are motivation to stay active, stay local and explore the local OCR scene.

What points do I earn?
Our points series changes each and every year. Our goal is to tweak, adjust, fix bugs and provide motivation. One major change this year is our focus on getting you out to MORE events, rather than the previous heavy focus on multiple laps (of course, multiple laps will be rewarded!)
Obstacle Course Races:
1pt per mile on your first lap
1pt per extra lap (of any length)
Non OCR (Virtual / Trail type events):
0.5pt per mile on your first lap only
Tiers and awards
We will pay out awards and prizes at two different levels, due to it’s popularity last year!
Standard: All Standard registrations will receive a medal at their first race, a swag pack full of #racelocal goodies at 10pts, and a #racelocal T Shirt at 25pts (available at cost to those adding #racelocal onto their Memberships option)
