MudGear Obstacle Race Apparel is pleased to announce the selection of Zack Kessell as a member of Team MudGear.

Zack Kessell surprised the OCR community in 2014. He was an unknown athlete who showed up without fanfare, and threw down an elite level performance at the BattleFrog race series taking 2nd place to OCR's most well known athlete.  He proceeded to repeat that performance in three consecutive races, finishing second and beating several other top elite racers.  All of this was no surprise to F3 Nation, the free peer-led outdoor bootcamp movement that started in Charlotte, North Carolina. The group stands for Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith and seeks to pull men into vigorous early morning beat downs, and push them to be better community leaders. Zack was already well known as a genuine badass by the hundreds of F3 guys he routinely smoked in early morning races through the city parks and streets. For this he earned the nickname Bunny, a real tribute in a group where the toughest guys are often bestowed the softest nick names.

Zack has a huge opportunity to excel in OCR, and plenty of hunger.

"I am honored to be selected from among the best in the world, and I look forward to representing Team MudGear. I think MudGear and I are both still in our infancy in terms of what we are going to do in the sport of OCR. My goals are to win races and give everyone a good view of what MudGear looks like from behind."
