At this point in time, qualification will only be required for the Pro divisions of the 3K and 15K distances of the Obstacle Course Racing World Championships. Results must be from an event that occurred between August 10, 2018 and September 23, 2021.
Athletes who have already registered for the Journeyman 3K or 15K divisions will be automatically assigned to their respective Age Groups without any qualification necessary.
Many of our partner races are beginning to hold events once again, which has allowed us to start thinking about the possibility of reinstating our standard qualification criteria. If at any point we reinstate qualification requirements, anyone who has already registered will be grandfathered in with no qualification required.
If and when we determine there are enough races happening that we can reinstate qualification, we will require qualification from that day forward.
There are no qualification requirements for the 100-Meter Sprint, Team Relay or charity open events.
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 only ten competitors, only the top five athletes are deemed qualified, even if the criteria state that the top ten qualify).
In the event of an odd number of finishers, the qualifying criteria is rounded up in favor of the athlete.
In the case where an age group or gender has only one competitor, please contact email@example.com to have your results personally reviewed.
