Obstacle Course Racing TV Shows & Aspects to Include

By Rob Sutter

If there’s one thing that remained true during my childhood, it was that obstacle course racing was a lot of fun. In particular, I enjoyed seeing others go about these activities and putting forth the utmost efforts imaginable in order to reach the finish lines. However, it was never an easy path to take and you can be certain that these people had to incur quite a deal of challenge. Sometimes that challenge didn’t even involve physical activity so much as mental actions.

Television during the 90′s seemed to brim with the most creative ideas imaginable and each show seemed to have its own touches to separate them from one another. For example, many shows went about quizzes and this tested people outside of running, lifting, and other physical activities. People who are able to recall facts and remember what is told to them will be able to gain the advantage. This system has been shown in a number of shows in the past while others outright ignored it.

I don’t think that there are many children who stayed away from the shows that their parents advised them against. One of the shows that I watched was “MXC” and people who enjoy stunts and obstacles are most likely going to get a kick out of this. While the show is funny in terms of how the dubbing is done in addition to the jokes overlaid, seeing people constantly fail at physical challenges while hurting themselves is attractive in some way. It’s always played for laughs, though, and no one is ever truly injured.

However, obstacle course racing could be surprisingly cognitive as well, utilizing brainpower in order to answer questions. Shows like “Double Dare” often took breaks from the action so that families and groups could work together to answer queries directed at them. I’m not saying that this show has the same amount of vigor as events like Spartan Race, either. All I’m saying is that when it comes to shows that I watched as a child, you were certainly going to learn a thing or two.

Game shows are impressive, to me, because they showcase levels of strength that I never thought would have been possible in the past. To be powerful is one thing but to be smart is another; blending the both of them almost seems possible. Obstacle course racing has taken this idea and actually made it one of the necessary qualities any competitor could have. Who’s to say that this particular mindset couldn’t help out in much bigger events if people decided to partake in them down the road?
