“This central location boasts some of the best terrain for Obstacle Course Racing in the country as well the opportunity to develop a championship event that the sport deserves,” states Adventurey CEO Adrian Bijanada.
The Obstacle Course Racing World Championships announced a couple of weeks ago announces it’s location in a new press release:
New York, NY December 17, 2013 – Cincinnati’s Mud Guts and Glory venue has been selected to host the inaugural Obstacle Course Racing World Championships (OCRWC) scheduled for October 18 and 19, 2014. The OCRWC, produced by Adventurey, LLC was announced in early December 2013 and is the first of its kind in Obstacle Course Racing.
“This central location boasts some of the best terrain for Obstacle Course Racing in the country as well the opportunity to develop a championship event that the sport deserves,” states Adventurey CEO Adrian Bijanada. “In addition, the Midwest OCR community has demonstrated an unparalleled passion for the sport. This venue has a proven ability to produce high-quality racing events and we couldn’t be more thrilled to work with them in making this vision a reality.”
The course of the OCRWC will be designed to truly test the athleticism of those who qualify. The course will share some of the same terrain and obstacles as the spectacularly reviewed Mud Guts and Glory events. However, significant changes will be made including a lengthened course and new obstacles which will be unveiled only on OCRWC weekend.
“Over the next ten months, OCRWC organizers will be focused on designing a unique racing event that provides a world-class experience for both athletes and spectators,” states Bijanada. “With this venue and 10 months of preparation time, we have the luxury of space and time to be sure we deliver an amazing racing experience.”
The OCRWC, announced earlier this month, is the first truly independent championship designed to celebrate the athletes in the burgeoning sport of obstacle racing. The race will be one of the broadest competitive events in the sport with over 16 racing categories including overall, age-group, and team competitions, each of which will feature cash and prizes for top finishers.
