This Championship is the brainchild of Noah Horn, username licahfox on TypeRacer. It draws much of its inspiration from Typing Zone, which has run a similar competition for 15 years. It also draws some inspiration from Urikor’s championships. With the exception of the prizes, all aspects of the Championship are managed by Noah, so please contact him with any questions at noah.horn@gmail.com.
