How to tackle three common obstacles


In the last month, OCR site has launched a series of videos featuring Dirty Dozen Races’ ‘The Beard’ showing how to tackle some of the obstacles that present the greatest challenges. In today’s post, we’re linking to those videos to help you develop your skills on three obstacles.
