Austrian OCR Federation joins World OCR!

[WOCRF] Announcements

World OCR is pleased to announce the admission of OCR Austria, the Österreichischer Fachverband für Extremhindernislauf as a Member Federation representing Austria, effective as of April 30, 2024. The application for recognition was officially filed on April 11, 2024, and after due consideration, the Austrian organization has been granted membership.

OCR Austria – Österreichischer Fachverband für Extremhindernislauf is now recognized as the official National Governing Body for the sport of OCR, Para-OCR, and all its virtual variants within its country. World OCR will extend its full support to the Organization in its endeavors to gain recognition from the Austrian Federal Sports Organization.

Effective from the date of admission, OCR Austria – Österreichischer Fachverband für Extremhindernislauf, as the affiliated member organization, will serve as the primary point of contact for all inquiries or communications within Austria related to the sport of OCR. This protocol reinforces the Austrian Federation’s position as the unequivocal authority for OCR in Austria, thereby enhancing its ability to cultivate and maintain relationships with existing and emerging sports clubs or associations committed to the sport’s growth.

A clear and structured communication policy, spanning regional, national, and international levels, will ensure a unified and systematic approach to the sport’s development and governance across the nation. This policy also precludes the possibility of any new entities circumventing the established World OCR member when engaging with the official International Governing Body for the sport, World OCR.

We welcome all national sports associations or federations that want to work towards the development and recognition of OCR as a standalone sport within their country. However, once a national sports association or federation successfully passes the evaluation period for affiliation – and it becomes validated – all inquiries receive from another application for membership will be redirected to the recognized member from within that country.
