Will OCR World Championships come to Europe in 2018?
The OCR World Championships and the team behind this event are an inspiration! They are an excellent example of an independent organization that’s committed to creating and improving OCR athlete-focused events. Wouldn’t it be great if The OCR World Championships were held in Europe? We think so too! And it looks like this might happen in the near future..
A short recap about OCRWC coming overseas
For those of you who haven’t read this news, we’ve gathered some quotes from different sources.
“We are thrilled to be back at Blue where we hope to build off the success of the 2016 event,” said OCRWC CEO & Founder Adrian Bijanad. “Our team is particularly excited to deliver and even more athlete-focused experience, while taking our courses and obstacles to the next level. This the perfect North American send off for the event as we look to bring it overseas in future years.” Source: OCR World Championships, News 1 Nov 2017
“But don’t get too attached to the Blue Mountain venue, as “It’s our intention that this will be the last time the event is in North America for some time,” expressed Adrian Bijinada; CEO & Founder of Adventurey LLC, the company that organizes the OCR World Championships. “While we are very proud of the quality of our event, we feel we still have a lot to learn and improve on.” Source: Adam Kwitko, 3-seconds.com
“For the last two weeks those in the OCR Community have been speculating on the exact location of the 2017 event. Bijanada told the international press corp yesterday, that the decision to keep the event in North America for an additional year was not taken lightly and noted that this will most likely be the last time the event is in North America “for some time.” Source: Mud Run Guide 9 Nov, 2016
