Mark Leinster Muddy Highlander OCR MC and OCR WorldChamp rep and OCR Marshal Trainer

Today’s interview is with Mark Leinster aka the Muddy Highlander. Mark is one of the most enthusiastic OCR eventer and OCR MC and ambassador for this growing sport. His enthusiasm for OCR is invigorating and he loves talking to people when it comes to OCR events whether newbies or regulars.

I got to know Mark first at Dirty Dozen Races as MC there and over the coming months with his involvement in the UK OCR facebook group and as a regular at other events. Mark is also the UK representative of the OCR World Championship and also puts in a lot of effort in training marshals who attend the events and keep everyone safe and looked after during all of the events.
