Wreck Bag Named Official Heavy Bag Of North American Obstacle Course Racing Championships and OCR World Championships

No obstacle course racing championship is complete without the legendary Wreck Bag Carry, so Adventurey and longtime partner and fitness industry icon Wreck Bag are teaming up once again for the much-anticipated 2018 North American OCR Championships Aug. 10-12 in Vermont and the 2018 OCR World Championships Oct. 19-21 in London. The grueling carry, which requires not only extraordinary strength but also superhuman stamina, perfectly complements the other championship events, which push all athletes to the ultimate limit.

“Wreck Bag’s innovative designs and commitment to excellence and comfort have long made it the perfect OCR championship partner,” said Adventurey Partnership Director Sandra Sawyer. “Its rubber-filled, shock-absorbent and perfectly balanced heavy bags are exceptionally durable and versatile, so we couldn’t be more thrilled that Wreck Bag is the official heavy bag of the 2018 NorAm and 2018 OCRWC. Our athletes live for challenges, and the Wreck Bag Carry never disappoints!”

“Wreck Bag is excited to be the official heavy bag of the 2018 OCRWC as well as the first NorAm Championship. The championship events put on by Adventurey LLC are always top notch and an honor to be a part of. Year after year, we are so inspired and humbled by the determination and effort these amazing athletes contribute to the sport of Obstacle Course Racing. We can’t wait to watch the always epic Wreck Bag Carry in two new locations!”​ said Lindsay Pettinelli, Sales Director of Wreck Bag.

Athletes attending the 2018 NorAm Championships can purchase course-used Wreck Bags following the completion of the final event. Pre-sale information is available at


About Wreck Bag

Wreck Bag has been a fitness and OCR staple since its debut at the 2014 F.I.T. Challenge. Unlike other strength-training bags, the Wreck Bag has a mold- and mildew-resistant weatherproof outer shell that is prefilled with a rubber blend instead of sand, ensuring accurate bag weight, leak prevention and comfort. Easy-grip handles and a simple-to-clean, scratch-free surface do even more to make it one of the most multifunctional and portable total-body fitness products on the market. Wreck Bags have been carried, hoisted and tossed in over 15 OCR series worldwide and were voted 2014 “Best New Product” and 2015, 2016 and 2017 “Best OCR Training Tool” by the Mud Run Guide community. In 2018, Wreck Bag launched the Wreck Wrap, which wraps 2 to 4 Wreck Bags into a team Bag suitable for 2 to 6 people. Wreck Bag is the official training bag of Ben Bergeron’s CompTrain and is the official bag of Alex Nicholas’ EPIC Hybrid Training centers. Wreck Bags are available in 5 lb to 140 lb prefilled weights on
