This year we put it up to you, the OCR Community, to tell us what you loved about 2015. We started with a nomination process where you told us who was deserving in each category. We got thousands of responses in the process, showing how much the industry has continued to grow. Our team at Mud Run Guide, pulled together your nominations then opened the voting.
The OCR Community Spoke
We asked you all to vote, and you answered with over 60,000 submissions over 27 categories from over 5,000 voters. You cast your vote from all corners of the globe and told us what you liked, didn't like and who you found most influential. Some of the categories came down to as few as five votes separating the winner and runner-up, each vote mattered in this poll.
Mud Run Guide Gives Back
In the process of voting you also helped Mud Run Guide contribute over $5,000 to these non-profits; The Malala Fund, American Diabetes Association, For Those Who Would, Global Giving, Operation Enduring Warrior, and the American Red Cross. Learn more about these charities here and why they were picked by the MRG staff.
