Share

Last year, OCR World Championships was an incredible event, a small number of racers from around the world gathered to run this new concept. This year those numbers tripled and on a personal note I got to be more involved on the back end.

Last year the theme was meeting people, this year the theme was about cementing those relationships as well as working with others from around the world. My official duties for the weekend were to Mud Run Guide. Check out all the coverage, live shows, and more we did over the week and weekend on the MRG OCR World Championships Page.  This past weekend marked my one year anniversary working for the website. So instead of a long drawn out sappy post here is my OCRWC by the numbers…

Look for a more formal overview of the week, weekend and race over on Mud Run Guide tomorrow. For now, I sit at home reflecting on the blur that was 2015 OCR World Championships and prepping to write up a formal recap. Thanks to everyone who made the event so wonderful!
