"The addition of this competition is the next logical step for our event," said OCRWC Founder Adrian Bijanada. "Each year we hear from athletes longing for a format that places more emphasis on obstacle technique and proficiency, and we're thrilled to finally offer them a world-class 100-meter course to compete on. Similar to our other distances, this will be a full-fledged discipline at the OCRWC."
In 2016, the OCR World Championships will continue it’s mission to help push the sport of obstacle racing to the next level. As the sport has grown, not only have the obstacles evolved, but the distances have as well. More and more athletes can now be considered specialists at certain distances throughout the season, yet when it comes to an end of season championship, they are all asked to run one distance - usually, the longest and most difficult.
