All Obstacle Course Racing World Championship individual competition participants must qualify for the event by meeting the criteria outlined below at ONE of these events between October 16, 2016 and October 1, 2017. Athletes are required to submit proof of results at the time of registration. Please note that this criteria applies only to the short course and standard distance events. There is no qualification requirement for the Team Relay event.
Athletes may also compete in our restricted Journeyman & Journeywoman Divisions. These waves are reserved for the most passionate Obstacle Course Racers. There are no finishing results requirement (i.e. third in your age group) to compete in this wave. Instead, athletes are required to complete ANY four obstacle course races. Non-cash prizes are awarded for the winners of these divisions and space is strictly limited.
Important note: 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 10 athletes in it, only the top five athletes are deemed qualifiers).
