Running shoes for obstacle races (OCR) need good grip in the mud, to be strong and durable and provide a certain level of comfort over longer stages or flatter runs. You can't be climbing a potentially dangerous obstacle in a shoe that you aren't confident with, nor run at the speed you would like with a shoe that's likely to slip and slide in thicker mud and water.
You might be looking for running shoes for events like tough mudder, tough guy, spartan race or even just a trail shoe that can handle your next tricky off road run. We have selected a range of running shoes suitable for obstacle events that we are sure will help get you to the end of the race!
An example of a truly tough and reliable obstacle course running shoe is the Inov-8 Mudclaw 300.
