World OCR Rankings – September 2023

Another big month of racing in Europe with the FISO Championships happened in September, plus a tonne of well-attended Spartan Races.

This month’s leaderboard reflects this with mostly European athletes. The one exception is recent return Nicole Mericle, (USA, 1) who moved up 4 places with 1st place and 3rd place results at the 14k & 3k FISO Champs in Belgium.

Closely followed by Ida Mathilde Steensgaard (DEN 2), who also moved up 4 places with 1st place and 3rd place in the 3k and 14k.

Alisa Petrova (RUS, 5) took 2nd place in the 14k.

Over in the men’s leaderboard new entry Gian Maria Savani (ITA, 1) stormed to the top with 1st place in the 3k and 2nd in the 14k. He is followed by Jakob Kolar (CZ, 2) who took 2nd place at Spartan Zell am see Beast and 2nd in the Kouty Sprint.

Egor Belousov (RUS, 4) took 1st place in the 14k.

Jeremie Gachet (FRA, 5) and David Labrosse (FRA, 6) both had a successful month at Spartan. Gachet achieved 1st place at Spartan Verbier and 2nd place at Spartan Misano Beast. Labrosse took 1st & 2nd place at the Super Esterel Saint Raphael Super & Beast.

*unfortunately we were unable to take into account any 100m results from FISO as we were unable to find a reliable results source. Apologies to all athletes involved.

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.
