About Michael, the man behind The Urban Challenger - a UK OCR and Race fitness blog

The guy behind The Urban Challenger
My name is Michael and I’ve become an OCR and race addict. I’m a normal guy trying to stay in good shape and most importantly enjoy my fitness along the way. As they say, variety is the spice of life (or something like that) and this is how I do it!

I love a challenge and am always looking to push myself. Here on The Urban Challenger, I review the races I take part in and share my tips on how to improve your fitness and perform your best at these races so that you can challenge yourself too. Keep up with me on Instagram and let me know what races you’ll be at.
