Badass Women of OCR: Missy Morris


Find out more about one of the women behind the scenes at Spartan Race: Missy Morris

For the past 3 years, myself, and some of the best people I know, have dedicated ourselves to putting together the best possible obstacle courses possible, not just the race but the entire experience.  We work 12 hour days for 2 weeks straight to build and tear down the races, then enjoy a few days off, before we do it all over again, sometimes on the opposite side of the country.  The hard work and sacrifices that OCR production staff make rarely gets noticed, but is quick to be criticized.  So I just want to make a shout out to everyone who is in this industry, working thankless hours, being away from family, promoting a sport that we are passionate about, so that we can make a difference in the lives of others.  As a racer, I was one of those people who’s life was changed because of Spartan Race, because of the sport of OCR, and I will continue to work my ass off so that other people have that same opportunity.  If anyone wants an opportunity to see all of the behind the scenes action at an OCR, volunteer, volunteer on a build day, the staff appreciate it!
