With the highly anticipated 2018 Obstacle Course Racing World Championships (OCRWC) being held in the UK for the first time, athletes and participants from around the world will have a chance to experience a world championship caliber course while supporting Youth Sport Trust and their mission to improve the lives of young people around the world through sport.
Youth Sport Trust is a charity established in 1994 to build a brighter future for young people in sport. The Trust develops and implements, in close partnership with other organizations, quality physical education and sport programs for young people aged eighteen months to eighteen years, in schools and community.
“Our organization is honored to partner with Youth Sport Trust,” said Adrian Bijanada, Adventurey Founder & CEO. “Being an organization that fully understands and appreciates the power of sport, we couldn’t imagine a better charity partner for 2018. It is our privilege to support YST’s mission and help them build upon their 20-year track record of successfully improving children’s lives.”
As part of the partnership, a special 7-kilometer event will be held during world championships weekend on Sunday, October 21. Fully open to the public and with no qualification required, this un-timed challenge will allow athletes and their supporters to experience a world-class course of 15-20 obstacles, with a portion of proceeds benefiting YST. Participants can register here.
