George Municipality is pleased to confirm the date for the OCC 2019 as the 12th May 2019. OCC 2019 has evolved and will include athletes with other disabilities taking part in a road running competition. Amputees (T42-44, T45-47 and T61-64) as well as visually impaired athletes (T11-13) will be able to take part in this year’s OCC, allowing the race to become more inclusive and opening the field thereby providing opportunities to a wider range of athletes. The organising team together with the sponsors are looking forward to seeing many more athletes on the road this year and in providing the perfect positive opportunity to bring people together.

The OCC challenge on Sunday 12th May, will be preceded by a Disability Sports Festival, which will run from 6 – 11th May at various venues around George. This sports festival will include exhibitions on sporting codes for persons with disabilities as well as opportunities for teams to participate against each other. The sporting codes that will be played include: wheelchair rugby, goalball, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair tennis, blind cricket, bocce and golf. George Municipality, George Airports Company and other sponsors welcome visitors and athletes from all over South Africa, to join us in a celebration of sport during this festival.

The route and other relevant information for the OCC 2019 will be communicated to the athletes and all stakeholders shortly on various media platforms. Registration documents will be sent via e-mail and will be available for download on the Municipal website
