Santé officially announces its very own Santé Barley Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) Team in a bid to serve as an inspiration to the sports community, as well as its business owners and stakeholders.
The Santé Barley OCR Team is the second sports team under the brand, the first being the Santé Barley triathlon team, which was founded seven years ago. Joey Marcelo, CEO of Santé and a triathlete, said that unlike triathlon, obstacle course is relatively more accessible to those who want to venture into sports.
“Our team has been competing overseas, especially that we have limited races in the local scene,” said Carlos Paca, captain of Santé Barley OCR Team. “As passionate athletes, we want OCR to thrive in the country and share it to a bigger community. That is why it helps to get the support of an established brand to promote the sport further.”
“We formed a bond through OCR because it’s a sport that you can enjoy regardless of what fitness level you are in. Some of us are runners, some of us do cross fit—It’s a range of different types of athletes. It doesn’t matter what your sports background is, or if you’re competitive or just doing it for recreational. We are united because of our shared love for the sport,” said Jan Raven Quan, coach of Santé Barley OCR Team.
The Santé Barley OCR Team is set to participate in local races this year, including the Allianz OCR Sunday happening in Filinvest City, Alabang on March 31, 2019, as well as Spartan Beast and Sprint in Batangas set on May this year.
