OCR World Championships Reflection
OCR World Championships 2015 is in the books, the results are being sorted, banners stored, the course is all loaded onto a truck ready for next year. It is time for me to personally reflect on the experience.
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…
