Hey I’m Desi, I have been taking part in OCRs for approximately 5 years from 5km to 25km. I love training at Crossfit Oakham to aid all elements of fitness which is why we are taking part in the Bootneck Challenge as a team. All the elements of an OCR aids helps a team develop not only physical skills but supporting each other with the mental challenges.

I have been involved in OCR for around 4 years now starting off with the Wolf Run. I can now be found either taking part in a race or at the event stand for Runflex, happy to chat and give advice about races, clothing and designs. Team Runflex came about a year ago and a incorporates both elite and fun runners some of who you will have seen out and about. This is your opportunity to be part of the Runflex Army and run under the Runflex team name.

I was introduced to OCR in 2011 and was immediately hooked to the buzz and great feeling of taking part and achieving something.

Bootneck Ambassador - Claire Pallett
A few years ago, a friend suggested I joined them on the 'Iron Run', that was my first taste of an OCR and I loved it! Fast forward to today and I have completed many races, including the infamous "Double Mucker" at the Rat Race. The support I have received during my journey has been nothing short of amazing.
My first race was Survival of the Fittest back in 2012 – I absolutely loved it. The camaraderie of the event was amazing.
I’ve always kept reasonably fit but never enjoyed running. The great thing about OCR is that whatever the distance, it’s broken up by the ‘fun stuff’ (to me, anyway!).
