World OCR Rankings – December 2023

To close off 2023 we were treated to The Spartan World Championships hosted by Abu Dhabi Sports Council.

With the 3K event with huge prize money, the 21K, and the team event there were plenty of results to work through!

Almost tied in first and second is Ryan Atkins, (CAN, 1) with 14.50 points and Veejay Jones (USA, 2) with 14.25. Despite coming first in the 3K where competition was fierce, Jones missed out to Atkins’s double result with 3rd in the 3K and 1st in the 21K.

A similar result is seen in the women, where Eszter Hortobagyiova (SVK, 1) pipped Lindsay Webster (CAN, 1) to the post with her additional 2nd place team result. Both women had 1st and 2nd place otherwise; Webster 1st in the 3K and 2nd in the 21K, Hortobagyiova swapping these places.

Rounding out the top 3 we see Dane Ida Mathilde Steensgard (DEN, 3) with her 3K 4th place and team 3rd place, and Pavel Hrdina (CZE, 3) after taking 2nd in the 3K, 5th in the 21K, and st in the team event.

Hrdina was joined by Klara Lokajikova (CZE, 4), who was 6th in the 3K, and Roman Toth (CZE, 9).

Steensgards team was completed by Nikolaj Dam, (DEN, 6) who also took 3rd in the 21K, and Leon Kofoed (DEN, 8) who was 4th in the 3K.

Francesca started running OCR in 2013, and after devouring all the information she could find on the sport, she began writing about it herself. With OCR quickly gaining traction in the UK where she lives, she launched her own site, Mud Is My Makeup, in 2014.

Since then she has gone on to produce content for publications including OCR Europe, Mud Run Guide, Mudstacle, Obstacle Race Magazine, and Obstacle Mud Runner Magazine, as well as OCRWC.

Francesca loves exploring every aspect of the sport as much as she loves to explore the courses themselves. Very much an average athlete, her goal has always been to encourage the everyday person to get muddy and active and discover how much joy suffering out on a course can bring.

Her first experience of OCRWC was the epic Blue Mountain in 2016, although she’d been following the event from the early days. The whole atmosphere, set up, and experience had her hooked and she knew that this was an organization that she not only wanted to support, but be involved with, and to help bring the spirit of OCRWC to a wider audience.
