FISO has adopted the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Code and World Obstacle Anti-Doping Rules are implemented to advance FISO’s continuing efforts to prevent doping in Obstacle Course Racing. Under recommendation from WADA all athletes competing in the OCR World Championships will be required to undertake the WADA Athlete Learning Program about Health and Anti-Doping (ALPHA) and provide a certificate of completion prior to competing.
Certificates will be validated during packet pick-up. The Anti-Doping e-Learning platform (ADeL) is free of charge and can be done at the pace you choose. Register and complete the programme from the ALPHA link, then download your completion certificate and show it at packet-pick up. Instructions for creating an account:

Competitive race categories include individual men and women in Elite plus five year age groups: U20 (minimum age 18 on race day) to 50+. National team races are mixed gender (3 people, at least 1 woman and at least 1 man) in the 3 km short course. Open waves will be available in each event format for non-competitive athletes.
Gold, Silver and Bronze medals are awarded for top three in each category. Prize money may be awarded to the top three finishers in Elite races. Medal tally will be kept for the top-performing countries.
Qualification to represent each country is through the national federations. Championships such as the OCR European Championships, OCR Asia-Pacific Championships, national championships and races specified by each country’s national federation may be qualifiers.
National Teams are limited to five (5) athletes per competitive category (elite and age group). Additional athletes may compete in the open category. Qualification is not the same as commercial events such as Spartan Race and Adventurey LLC (OCRWC). Details on qualification for each Country is available here.
EVENTS & FORMATS
Event formats include 100 m individual Sprint (10 obstacles, video here), 3 km individual and team Short Course (20+ obstacles ) and 15 km individual Standard Distance (~50 obstacles) cross country Obstacle Course Races. Qualification for OCR World Championships assumes athletes study and train for the obstacle format, rules, terrain and weather conditions.
Competition Rules are specific to each event. These are not the same rules used by commercial events such as Spartan World Championships, Strong Viking OCR World Finals, World’s Toughest Mudder, or Adventurey OCRWC. Rules for competitive categories allow only one attempt per obstacle. The races and competition rules are formatted to facilitate fairness, event flow, judging and eliminate back-ups at obstacles. A high level of obstacle proficiency is required, however these are races and are designed for 80% completion by world level athletes in all categories. These are not “failure” races, and are designed for national teams who are selected by the national federations from the best athletes in each country. This meets criteria accepted for medal events in International Multisport Games and championships under regulation by the International Olympic Committee for athletes competing at the highest level.
