“After four years in North America, we knew that to truly be a global championship we would need to move outside the continent. Our team spent more than a year vetting various venues around the world and found this venue offered a unique opportunity to build something distinctly international, while bringing obstacle course racing back home to the UK,” said Adventurey CEO, Adrian Bijanada. “Athletes and their families should expect a world-class course showcasing global obstacle course racing brands, a diverse international village, and contributions from partners that are a reflection of the worldwide obstacle racing industry.”
“We’re honoured and excited to be chosen to host the OCR World Championships in 2018. Obstacle racing originated in the UK, so we’re expecially proud to be the showcase venue for this world class event. Our multi award winning courses and obstacles will allow the World’s team to create a truly epic athlete experience. We’re looking forward to working together & welcoming everyone”
