LegendBorne Named Exclusive Jersey Provider of the 2017 Obstacle Course Racing World Championships and the Inaugural United States Obstacle Course Racing Championships
“Thanks to LegendBorne’s brilliantly designed, top-of-the-line jerseys, athletes at the last year’s Obstacle Course Racing World Championships proudly displayed and honored their heritage while racing on the sport’s biggest stage,” said OCRWC Sponsorship Director Sandra Sawyer. “We are honored to feature them once again at the 2017 event and also to introduce them to the athletes helping us make history at the first independent United States Obstacle Course Racing Championships.”
“LegendBorne is a company that shares our ‘athletes first’ approach to obstacle course racing and we are thrilled to extend our partnership into its second year and across both of our premier events,” said Adrian Bijanada, Founder of the OCR World Championships. “Our organization takes pride in finding partners that offer our athletes exceptionally high-quality products and LegendBorne’s jerseys undoubtedly hit that mark.”
As part of the partnership, LegendBorne’s new international jersey line and limited edition USA jersey will be sold exclusively at LegendBorne.com in the coming weeks. Additionally, LegendBorne will host a number of athlete focused activities onsite at both the World and U.S. Championships.
“Our signature Obstacle Course Racing jersey line was designed with the highest level of competition in mind, so we are incredibly honored and excited that LegendBorne will be such a huge part of the 2017 U.S. OCR Championships and 2017 OCR World Championships,” said John Bryant, LegendBorne Sportswear president. “I experienced my first OCRWC last year and was so impressed and inspired by the incredible athletes, I competed and qualified to race in both events this year. I can’t wait to see you all on the courses!”
“Last year’s partnership with the OCRWC was a wonderful way to introduce LegendBorne to the masses,” said David Bryant, LegendBorne Sportswear CEO. “We are humbled to step into a title partnership and work with not only the world championships but also the first national championships. The growth mindset and proven successes of Adrian Bijanada and his team are in line with our goals for obstacle course racing as a whole. These are exciting times not only for the sport, but also for LegendBorne as we continue to grow.”
