Team relay racing will return to the OCR World Championships

Officials with the OCR World Championships have announced this year’s event will again include team relay racing.

Teams will consist of three athletes, racing in relay format, on a specially-designed course with four separate legs. Each leg will target a key discipline of OCR: speed, strength, technique, and teamwork.

Athletes are encouraged to strategically devise teams based on these key disciplines. For example, the ideal team may consist of a running specialist for the running leg, a stronger athlete for the strength-based obstacles leg, and an obstacle specialist for the technical obstacle leg.

There will be both “Pro” and “Open” divisions, with categories for all male, all female, and co-ed (minimum of one female) teams.

There is no qualification requirement for the team competition. Cash prizes will only be awarded in the “Pro” categories.

The OCR World Championships are scheduled for October 14-16, 2016 in Ontario, Canada.
