Professional Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) athlete Evan “Ultra-OCR Man” Perperis is at it again raising money for his favorite charity Folds of Honor (FOH). As an active duty members of the US Army Special Forces, a veteran of 44 cumulative months of combat deployments and someone who has lost friends fighting overseas, he takes special interest in the work that FOH does.
In 2020, from January 19-26, Evan will be running a marathon length obstacle course event everyday for eight days in a row. His goal is to run an average of 26.2 miles while completing over 100+ obstacles each day. The event starts in Long Island, New York and finishes in Kansas City at KC Timber Challenge’s Yeti Course. While Evan is going to the extreme, you can support him by jogging/walking with him for a mile, a lap or more at any one of these eight venues.
Day 8: Sunday, January 26, 2020: KC Timber Challenge Yeti (this is a live event, you must register for their event here to pace/run. If you want an OCR America shirt and buckle, you need to also register for here.)
OCR America 2 donated 100% of event registrations to Folds of Honor. Costs incurred for shirts, belt buckles, travel expenses for Evan and his crew will be generated through other means.
This isn’t the first time he’s done extreme endurance for FOH. In 2018 he did a 48-hour multi-lap of Conquer The Gauntlet Tulsa and in 2019 ran for 24 hours on a treadmill briefly getting off at the conclusion of each mile to complete four obstacles. Take your time to donate to a great cause while encouraging others to redefine what they think is possible.
