The criteria will be determined on competitiveness, terrain, obstacles and importantly of our athletes race prize money. We will develop an annual race calendar for each athlete in the form of on and off seasons so as to balance racing, training and recovery, in order to avoid over training/racing.

Europe & US OCR Race Series
We have started to source sponsorship for individual athletes. As you will be aware top OCR athletes in the US such as Hunter McIntyre and Hobie Call are rightly getting the sponsorship they deserve. The UK is at least 12 months behind the US in respect to OCR racing, so we have work to do as a TEAM to show the potential sponsors of the opportunities to sponsoring our elite OCR athletes like yourself. It is our intention to get individual sponsorship for our podium elite and aspiring OCR athletes, where possible, here at TEAM Wild Forest Gym.
We are currently sponsored by 2XU and GU Energy.
We are looking for additional sponsorship to help towards our athletes expenses in racing.
In order to bring together your coaching, mentoring, racing and sponsorship we will also acts as your manager. This way we can make sure your coaching is implemented to optimize your racing. With this in place and you reaching the podium, we will manage and market you as a racer in regard to sponsorship, endorsements and press coverage.
