Labor Day weekend. Save the date.
Texas. Save the travel budget.
The same people behind OCR World Championships are holding their first ever regional event – and for their last year on the North American continent for the World Championships, they’re starting a US only series, right here in the States.
The weekend will take the form of a 3k short course on the Saturday, Sept 2nd, and a 15k full course on the 3rd, Sunday.
Both races will offer a Pro division and an Age Group series – with full qualification information coming to their new website, http://usocrchamps.com
(note: there is no Journeyman division – Age Group will be open to all)
The biggest piece that makes this different to OCRWC – a requirement that you are a US Citizen or legal resident to compete with a focus on US events to populate the obstacle list – this is for the US.
