ALEXANDRIA, Virginia, April 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Obstacle course organizer, Navy SEAL Adventure Racing, and protectors of police, soldiers and homes, Hesco Group, join forces to launch HESCO BONEFROG, the ultimate Obstacle Course Race (OCR).
Created by Navy SEALs in 2012, this OCR is designed to challenge and inspire participants to become better athletes and recognize that they can do anything they set their minds to, while enjoying the camaraderie and teamwork usually reserved for active duty Navy SEALs.
As Platinum Sponsor, Hesco is ideally suited to promote the high energy OCR to the military and federal audiences that use HESCO Products to protect lives and assets around the world.
Brian Carney, Founder and CEO of BONEFROG Challenge, welcomes the partnership with Hesco;
"HESCO BONEFROG is truly a unique experience which will challenge even the highest calibre athletes as well as be welcoming to new OCR racers. With our 3 course options we truly have something for every racer and our Navy SEAL-style obstacles are the best in obstacle course racing. As SEALs, we have used HESCO Products in Iraq and Afghanistan countless times and these products have even saved some of our lives. Sharing the same fearless attitudes there is no better company for BONEFROG to partner with other than Hesco Group."
For what will hopefully be a long lasting relationship the HESCO BONEFROG partnership will expand the number of challenges around the United States, with 16 races planned over the next 24 months. The first challenge will be held in New England on May 21st 2016 for Armed Forced Day and raising awareness for incredibly worthy charities.
