With the highly anticipated 2023 Obstacle Course Racing World Championships (OCRWC) heading to Mammoth Lakes, California in October, British company dryrobe®, has again been named the Official Changing Robe of the OCR World Championships.
“Every year, we strive to make the Obstacle Course Racing World Championships an unforgettable event by featuring the most challenging obstacles, the most awe-inspiring athletes, and the most dynamic partners,” said Adventurey CEO, Adrian Bijanada. “dryrobe® has more than earned its place at the OCRWC with its phenomenal moisture-wicking, weatherproof and roomy changing robes, and we are ecstatic that they are joining us again once again. The durable and practical construction of dryrobe makes for easy clothing changes in even the coldest and wettest conditions.”
The dryrobe® was designed and developed by Gideon Bright as a way to keep warm and change anywhere and to shelter from the elements while in your sports kit. Originally born from cold water surfing and year-round parking lot changes, the obstacle racing community of the United Kingdom adopted dryrobe® as a critical piece of kit for cold rainy obstacle races. Since then, dryrobe® has become a global sensation, previously working with athletes such as 6x OCR World Champion, Jonathan Albon, along with many of the world’s best OCR competitors worldwide.
Gideon Bright, Founder and Director of dryrobe® commented: “Here at dryrobe®, we’re excited to be supplying the Official Changing Robe of the 2023 OCR World Championships. As the premier event in Obstacle Course Racing, we’re proud to be partnering with an organization that shares our love of nature and encourages both professional and amateur athletes to experience the great outdoors while ensuring their commitment to protecting the environment and supporting local communities.”
A special OCR World Championships limited edition collaborative custom dryrobe® Advance will be available to purchase this year, and will be available soon via dryrobe.com and for purchase worldwide ahead of the event.
