OCRAUK is an NPO set up in order to safeguard Obstacle Course Racing for all.
The association aims to nurture growth and goodwill whilst encouraging the involvement of the wider community.
We hope to ensure best practices are established and maintained to provide a safe racing environment without losing the sheer grit of the sport.
OCRAUK is also a member of the Sport and Recreation Alliance which is the umbrella body for sport and recreation in the UK, representing 320 members.
The association aims to lobby to have the sport recognised as an official sport providing the recognition it so deserves. OCRAUK and all those involved in the association hope to reflect the aspect of OCR that makes it so unique, that being the positive community spirit.
TO ENCOURAGE INVOLVEMENT OF THE WIDER COMMUNITY
We’re here for everyone that loves OCR. Regardless of your level of fitness or your motivation ro run.
Many potential organisations from Government to corporate sponsors still don’t really see what OCR is. We aim to change that.
As OCR grows, together we’ll spread the word about the benefit OCR brings to individuals and society.
Sharing best practice
Through programmes, learning and sharing knowledge we can all continue to make OCR a rising star in fitness.
OCR is all about challenging participants. Maintaining trust and quality is paramount for the whole community.
Protecting the Injured
We support the thousands of people who get injured every year, including providing ted hose (ted hose acronym definition here) to prevent blood clots after surgery.
Lobbying for recognition
Currently, OCR is not a recognised ‘sport’. We working hard to establish it as one here in the UK.
