World OCR Rankings – June 2022

It should come as no surprise to anyone to see Kris Rugloski (USA, 1) moving up two spaces to take the top spot in this month’s obstacle course racing athlete rankings, with an impressive average of 14.6 points. Racing every single weekend of May saw her top the Savage points leaderboard with wins at SC and MD. After a personal best performance at the Hyrox World Championships, clinching her the Women’s World Title, she competed the next day at Spartan Big Bear, taking 3rd place, alongside a win at Austin placing her joint 3rd in the Spartan Leaderboard. If this wasn’t enough, she claimed first at Frontline OCR with an impressive 20-minute margin, placing 7th overall, all while racing in a weighted vest.

The Male leaderboard is topped by Dutch athlete Jesse De Heer (NL, 1) with 12.8 points. De Heer moved up 5 places this month for his performances including wins at Nature Race, and the Czech OCR Championships. Ryan Atkins (CA, 2) is hot on his tail with 12.4 points, sitting second on the Spartan Series leaderboard after his win at Big Bear. Also second place for women is the other half of OCR’s sweethearts, Lindsay Webster (CA, 2) with 10.8 points, after taking first at Big Bear, and sitting top of the Spartan Leaderboard.

All eyes have been on Glen Racz (USA, 6) and he has broken into the top ten with 7.8 points after an impressive 3rd place at Deka SoCal, 1st at Grit Claw, and 1st at Grit Feng OCR. We expect to see more appearances throughout the season from Racz.

Another new entry on the women’s board is UK’s Nikki Johnson (UK,7), taking joint 7th with Emma Cook Clark (USA, 7). Johnson broke into the leaderboard with a win at Spartan series race London West Sprint, and 1st Place at Nuclear Rush day 1. Cook Clark, also sitting at joint 7 re-entered the top ten with her 2nd place at Big Bear, sitting joint 3rd in the Spartan Series leaderboard with Rugloski.

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.
