UPDATE: Age Group & Journeyman Qualifications Waived for 2020

A Message to Our Athletes

Due to COVID-19 and the cancellation of so many of our partner races, we’ve made the decision to waive all Age Group and Journeyman cancellation requirements for the 2020.

Our partner races have been hit hard, and we know many athletes who registered for the OCRWC have lost their planned opportunities to qualify.

During these unprecedented times, we want to make sure the athletes who want to race with us are able to do so.

As a result, 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 October 1, 2020.

Athletes registered for the Journeyman 3K or 15K divisions will be automatically assigned to their respective Age Groups without any qualification necessary.

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

Important notes 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 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 help@ocrwc.com to have your results personally reviewed.

I’ve qualified and registered. When will I receive my confirmation email?
Confirmation emails are sent out on the 5th of each month for all registrations from the preceding month.
Can I update divisions after I have already registered?
We allow changes in divisions (Pro, Age Group, or Journeyman), however, there is a $25 per distance administration fee in order to do so, plus any incremental costs associated with your new division. Contact us with your request to initiate this process.
How far back can I use a qualifying result as my qualification for the OCRWC?
For the 2020 OCRWC, events on or after August 10th, 2019 will be qualifiers. You can find the details for qualification here: How To Qualify
