  • HOW TO QUALIFY

The 3K and 15K distances of Obstacle Course Racing World Championship require that athletes qualify to compete by meeting certain results criteria. Results must be from an event that occurred between August 9, 2019 and October 1, 2020.

There are no qualification requirements for the 100-Meter Sprint, Team Relay or charity open events.

Athletes may also compete in our Journeyman division in either the 3K or 15K. There are no finishing results requirement to compete in these divisions. Instead, athletes are required to complete any three obstacle course races prior to race day.

Important note regarding qualifying criteria: No more than 50% of an age group or a gender in a division at a specific event can qualify for the OCRWC (e.g. if an age group has ten competitors, only the top five athletes are deemed qualifiers). In the event of an odd number of finishers, the qualifying criteria is rounded up in favor of the athlete.
