Mike has been aware of the Wason Pond Pounder for many years and we registered for their final event (planned for 2020) back in 2019! Of course 2020 was a rough year for events to say the least and their event was postponed again in 2021 due to picking dates that would have been difficult for attendance (one of them overlapping with OCRWC I believe).

The final event finally happened though! We woke at 6:30am to make the trip up to New Hampshire to check out this small local OCR. We were not disappointed since the course was very well laid out, fun, and had some great obstacles for beginners to the sport!

We interviewed a few people in the festival area, the top finishers, a woman that we helped through the course, and then finish up with an event recap!
