Which are the most popular obstacle courses for each state (map)?

I was curious about this topic, (I didn't find anything on the web), so I decided to do my researches and make a post on "which are the most popular obstacle courses for each state", and share it with you.

Important! I based my results on Google Trends, this means what people search for, the map wants to be funny and serious at the same time. Funny for you, serious for the Brands mentioned here.

They should ask themself, "why in that state people don't search us? What can we do about it?"

The time-lapse is the last year, from May 2016 to May 2017.​

most popular obstacle courses for each state

​As you can see from the map, Tough Mudder is dominant with 16 states and Warrior Dash is at the second place with 11 states. Basically, they dominate the middle of the nation.

Spartan Race is further away with "only" 6, plus one that it shares with Tough Mudder. You can find Spartans mainly on the west coast.​

What about the other minor OCRs?

Rugged Maniac does well with 9 states, Savage Race 4, Civilian Military Combine 2 and Mudderella only one. All them basically on the east coast.​

But I would like to give you more details, so, below you'll find all the states (along with some curiosity) in alphabetical order with the three first position.​
