OCR ATHLETE SERVICES PROGRAM

Get Seen, Get Fans, Get Sponsored

For many people, Obstacle Course Racing is a lifestyle, either as a hobby or as a competitive sport. You are likely training and racing consistently and are committed to improving as an athlete. And as you know, that commitment is an investment in effort, time and money. 


For some, there’s the potential to lower the costs associated with OCR by finding product and even cash sponsors. However, because Obstacle Racing is a new sport, competition for the limited opportunities for meaningful sponsorship. That is why we created the OCR Athlete Services Program - to help you get access to the resources you need to train and race.


We represent and consult to some of the most successful athletes in OCR, and have worked with dozens of businesses interested in sponsoring OCR athletes. We know what companies look for in athletes and how to best position them to be attractive to sponsors. But, you don't have to be a household OCR name to Get Seen, Get Fans and Get Sponsored:

OCR Business Services

Know the OCR Market

 

The sport of Obstacle Course Racing is relatively new and has been growing at a record pace. From its roots, with roughly 2 million participants between 2010 and 2012, through the past few years, OCR has been the fastest growing sport in the history of sports, logging more race registrations in the U.S. than marathons and half-marathons, combined.

Current estimates put the number of racers at 1 million+ world-wide last year, with the average racer registering for 3 events.

Know the OCR Opportunity

The newness of the sport, combined with its large and growing consumer base, present a unique opportunity to capitalize on first mover advantage with an underserved audience. As OCR continues to mature, solidifying the "event" side (casual participants) and developing the "sport" side (competitive athletes), there are significant opportunities for a broad range of product and service-based businesses. 

BUSINESS BRAND DEVELOPMENT

The development of any brand must start with a company's objectives and an understanding of the target market it's trying to reach. If your company is interested in selling to the 1+ million member audience of Obstacle Course Racing, you must start by knowing the wants and needs of this unique market, and having a strategy for creating a relationship with that audience that results in revenue growth for your company.


The Obstacle Course Racing consumer is part adventurer, part over-achiever, part health and fitness enthusiast, and is all-in for opportunities to make their OCR experience better with the right products and services. We will help you quickly learn the unique psychology of OCR consumers, and how to  develop a branding and marketing strategy that meets them at their needs.

After developing an understanding of the OCR consumer, we will help you identify the right channels to convey your brand message that fit within your overall business plan and budget.

  • Creating the right brand value proposition for the OCR market
