Competition at the inaugural United States Obstacle Course Racing Championships is divided into two categories: Pro or Age Group. Athletes wishing to compete in the Pro Division in either the 3k or 15k events, must qualify to compete by meeting criteria outlined below at ONE of these US-based events between September 1, 2016 and August 14, 2017. Athletes are required to submit proof of results at the time of registration. Please note that this requirement does not apply to athletes competing in Age Group Divisions.
Additionally, please note the following:
- Athletes must be United States Citizens or legal U.S. residents. Proof of identity will be required at the event.
- Athletes must qualify at an event within the United States.
- No more than 50% of an age group or a gender in a division at a specific event can qualify for the Pro Division (e.g. if an age group only has 10 athletes in it, only the top 5 are deemed qualifiers).
