COVID-19 Policies

Last Updated August 19, 2021
The safety of all participants and attendees of the 2021 Obstacle Course Racing World Championships is our top priority. To that end, the 2021 OCRWC has adopted the following policies for all in attendance in conjunction with local, state, and federal COVID-19 safety guidance.  Please note that this is subject to change in accordance with regulatory guidance.
  • All participants will be required to show proof that they are fully vaccinated or proof of a recent negative test (administered within the last three calendar days) upon check-in.
  • Individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19, experienced any symptoms of COVID-19, or to their knowledge have had contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 14 days, should not attend the event. Athletes will be required to complete a personal declaration form attesting to these policies during the check-in process.
  • Stratton currently does not require guests to wear masks.  However, it is recommended that attendees wear a mask while in indoor areas such as registration or the OCRWC merchandise shop, regardless of vaccination status.
  • All attendees are encouraged to maintain social distance standards while indoors.
  • All attendees voluntarily assume any and all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.  We encourage everyone that is able to get a COVID-19 vaccine to protect themselves and their fellow OCRWC attendees.

What type of test result do I need to provide at check-in?

A PCR test is preferred, however an antigen rapid test result is acceptable.  This includes self-administered tests, tests conducted by medical professionals, or tests currently available at most airports or pharmacies.

What happens if I test positive and can’t attend the event?

Participants that test positive will have their entries deferred to 2022 at no cost.

What should I do if I test positive for COVID-19 while attending the event?

In the event an attendee tests positive or has been knowingly exposed to COVID-19, they must immediately notify our OCRWC officials via email at [email protected].  If this person has been on-site, officials will implement contact tracing protocols to confidentially notify individuals who may have had close interactions, as defined by CDC Guidelines, as quickly as possible.
