Adventurey is thrilled to announce that the 100-meter OCR World Championships will be powered by Urban-Sky.
Adventurey is always at the forefront of competitive OCR, and strive to deliver ever greater events to the best athletes. With each year seeing more developments and partnerships, it is with great pride that we release details of the innovative 100m course due to debut at the 6th annual Obstacle Course Racing World Championships this October, in London, UK.
Partnering with obstacle specialists Urban-sky, the 100m short course is designed to test racers in a way yet unseen at OCRWC.
“The beauty of Obstacle Course Racing is the variety,” said Adrian Bijanada, founder and CEO of Adventurey. “Each and every course tests athletes differently, and with such an exciting and innovative sport, it is only right and fair to continue to push the boundaries and offer every athlete the opportunity to challenge themselves and succeed. There is no one type of obstacle course racer and no one type of OCR. This is why we have added this 5th event to our 3 day event weekend.”
“With the design of the 100m course, we wanted to create something that is a spectacle for supporters, but most importantly an incredible experience for the racers. With a short distance, we can create something powerful and exciting, and we have modified several of our signature obstacles to make something very special,” said Rick Urban, Founder & Head of Design of Urban-sky
“The custom design means we can adapt the course throughout heats, and there’s a unique area where participants and spectators cross, allowing for the greatest support, and a different type of challenge to the racer. We are thrilled to partner with OCRWC to create the 100m race, and make OCR history. ”
