What else makes The OCR World Championships one of the best OCR event weekends out there? Spectators.
There’s nothing like the buzz that comes from the multitudes of supporters and spectators who come together to cheer on every single one of our athletes; whether they are crossing the line in first place or 500th, every single one is victorious, and your support spurs them on to keep pushing.
Spectators and supporters at OCRWC are always free, and always welcome! Whilst spectating is completely free, we do ask you sign a waiver to protect yourself & the mountain. If you plan on coming please find the links here, or sign on site.
Racing starts Friday morning with the 3k and continues throughout the weekend with the 15k on Saturday, team and charity on Sunday, and the 100m throughout the whole weekend with finals happening on Sunday. Click here for the full schedule.
We also hold podium awards every day for Age Group and Pro which is always a wonderful moment to support all these achievements.
The most spectator-friendly obstacles, plus start and finish lines will be easily found near Main Lodge at Mammoth Mountain. Course maps can be found here in our athlete guide, but it will be hard to miss the hub of everything.
More obstacles will be further up the mountain but please take local advice, and bear in mind mountain safety if you choose to support further afield.
OCRWC runs waves for Pro, Age Group, and Journey Man. For the Pros, race around the course supporting them on the obstacles. Journey men love to be called in as they come through the finish line, and everyone needs the encouragement and support on the trickiest of obstacles when they’re low on morale!
While at many sporting events, bringing refreshments for athletes is part of the fun, at OCRWC this is not allowed for athletes, so the best way to support is to cheer, scream, ring bells, and be as excited and encouraging as you can be!
If you want to get involved more than as a spectator, you can sign up as a volunteer here, and receive branded volunteer goodies, plus a race code to take part in the event for free so you don’t have to miss out on any of the fun!
We can’t wait to see you at Mammoth Lakes and hope you’ll love this event as much as we do.
