Catherine Fahey, School Administrator at Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU), will represent Great Britain in the upcoming Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) World Championships 2019, held in the UK this October. The OCR World Championships are the only independent global championships for the sport of Obstacle Course Racing designed to unify, promote, and increase participation in the sport of OCR. Catherine qualified for her place with an impressive second place in her age category in the Spartan Sprint race. To prepare for the Championships Catherine is engaged in a rigorous training regime including three sessions a week with Summit Outdoor Fitness, along with strength training in the Gym and additional running sessions. As she prepares, Catherine expressed her excitement at being chosen for the event: “Competing in OCR has been an incredible experience and I truly believe if I can do it anyone can. Working at BGU has given me the flexibility to be able to run before and after work and during my lunch break and I would like to thank the team in the BGU Sports and Fitness Centre who let me use their facilities. I am a big believer in Positive Mental Attitude, Outdoor living and looking after the environment. I would like to thank everyone for their support and well wishes for the up and coming event.” Everyone at BGU wishes Catherine the best of luck for her upcoming championship and you can keep up to date with how she gets on on our News page.
