In August, Adventurey, producer of the Obstacle Course Racing World Championships (OCRWC), confirmed a partnership with Dream Team Television to produce programming for the 2018 Obstacle Course Racing World Championships.
“Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) has exploded in popularity over the past several years and is now recognized as a premier sport for professional and amateur athletes,” Adrian Bijanada, Adventurey Founder & CEO, said. “We’re excited for our athletes to showcase their skills and introduce OCR to sports fans around the world.”
This year’s OCRWC takes place from the October 19-20 at Kelvedon Hatch, outside London, England. Thousands of the world’s top athletes in the sport of OCR from more than 60 countries competed this year for the title of World Champion in 3K, 15K, and Team Relay events.
Following the debut broadcast on Saturday October 27th, additional international networks will feature the program in their line-ups with programming details announced as they become available.
Founded in 2013, the OCR World Championships are positioned as ‘the only truly independent global championships for the sport of Obstacle Course Racing’. Its mission is to unify, promote and increase participation in the sport of OCR while celebrating its athletes and community. Competing in the event requires athletes to qualify for a limited number of spots through a network of qualifying events.
