PRESS RELEASE MARCH 2ND 2022

E.P. Global Events Limited and owned brands World’s Highest OCR and ALTITUDE OCR of Suite 1, Burns House, 19 Town Range, Gibraltar, GX11 1AA announce suspension of all Russian professional and amateur athletes for its events in 2022.

Considering the recent Russian invasion of Ukraine including the death and continued suffering of people of Ukraine, E.P. Global Events Limited has taken the decision to suspend all Russian professional and amateur athletes from its events in 2022 and to be revised in January 2023.

We believe through World’s Highest Values that the preservation and promotion of peace, increasing quality of life and the protection of innocence and the vulnerable is paramount and should never be compromised.

Sport is a sanctuary for all and does also acknowledge world events that destroys lives.

We also acknowledge that good human beings are not defined by flag or nationality. Our September 2021 World Record breaking event on Kilimanjaro included two Russians who were a fantastic part of the team and a real pleasure to get to know. Their personal values and who they were shone through and are still great ambassadors for who they are, their Families and what they believe in.

Too many times in history, has inaction proved devastating.

Our prayers and hearts are with the Ukrainian people, and we sincerely hope for a continued better future for all.

2021 Altitude OCR World Championships

World’s Highest OCR announces participation of the POSF Philippine National Team

World’s Highest OCR endorsed as the official Altitude OCR World Championships

Lausanne, Switzerland: World Obstacle, the Fédération Internationale de Sports d’Obstacles (FISO), announced today the launch of the 2021 Altitude OCR World Championships, scheduled from September 12th to 21st, 2021 on Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, exclusively run by E. P. Global Events Ltd under the brand & event name World’s Highest OCR, an international extreme altitude sports and OCR race producer and promoter.

This ultimate OCR challenge brings together the colossal elements of Mount Kilimanjaro, one of the Seven Summits, the highest peaks on each of the seven continents, and Obstacle Course Racing to create the ultimate bucket list challenge on the Roof of Africa. Participants conquer the world’s highest free-standing mountain to earn their place as part of the World Record group for the World’s Highest OCR with an extraordinary obstacle course race in the volcanoes’ crater. All participants can then enter the 2-day timed descent as a time trial race down the mountain.

“The World’s Highest OCR provides international participants the chance to experience the most challenging and stunning landscape Africa has to offer” said EP Global Events co-founder, Mr. Robert Edmond. “The challenge requires participants to ascend Mt. Kilimanjaro in stages for safety, acclimatising to the 5,985m summit before descending into the crater, moving through the obstacle course and finally the speed decent.”

EP Global Events co-founder Mr. Dave Pickles added “The World’s Highest OCR will employ 400 local staff, providing benefit to their extended families and the local community. The event will have a wide and enduring positive impact, elevating the lives of thousands of people in the region.”

“The World’s Highest OCR provides a unique adventure challenge for obstacle athletes and real value to the local population” said FISO President, Mr. Ian Adamson “This event satisfies many of our higher goals as a sport, including making better humans and generating positive economic impact.
