Race Co-Director Jason Correia said, “OCR is booming globally and the conditions are right to evolve this impactful local charity event into a global tourism event, adding more charitable dollars as well as heads in beds.

“We are expecting close to 50 international visitors this year, thanks to the support from our sponsors – Argus, Chubb, Sun Life Financial International and the Bermuda Tourism Authority.”

“This year’s supporting charities are SCARS, Knowledge Quest, The Reading Clinic, Raleigh, Windreach and the Somerset Primary PTA.

Race Co-Director Dr. Reid Robinson said, “Winning the Bermuda Triple Challenge weekend does not mean you are the fastest or the strongest, but can complete the fun and challenging obstacle courses, as well as raise funds on behalf of our great charities.
