Ambassador Profile: Desi Gillespie
Hey I’m Desi, I have been taking part in OCRs for approximately 5 years from 5km to 25km. I love training at Crossfit Oakham to aid all elements of fitness which is why we are taking part in the Bootneck Challenge as a team. All the elements of an OCR aids helps a team develop not only physical skills but supporting each other with the mental challenges.
At present I am competing in Strongman and weightlifting events which helps with the strength based elements that the course will bring. I have recently trekked to Everest Base Camp where this picture comes from. Squatting our Sherpa as extra training.
