Anyone can compete to be national, continental and/or world champion at each event and for the series! The goal of the virtual world series is to help you stay fit and compare yourself with anyone (or everyone) else in the world. This is primarily designed to fun, a bit competitive if you want, and above all … fun!

Competitive athletes must submit verification of their obstacle completion, distance and time as described below. No verification = no result. The OCRWS-V is designed to simulate a real OCR and is subject to similar rules.

The World Series is six races that crown the World Series champions after the final race in October. Points are awarded for each race and points from your top three races of the final four (races 3 through 6) count toward the final standings.  Accumulated points for the top three elite athletes in each category, from each country, are automatically included in the World Team Rankings.

The OCR Virtual World Championships will be in November with the top Elite Athletes competing in a globally broadcast TV show. Athletes qualify or are nominated by their national federation to compete in the OCRWC-V.

Only one race submission is allowed each month.

AWARDS

Gold Silver and Bronze virtual medals will be awarded across all categories and the final medal table will show the top-performing athletes and countries!

National Federations may require additional requirements for athletes in each country. Contact your national governing body here for details…

World Series Finals November for top-ranked Elite will be broadcast with live commentary.

HOW?

  1. Register for free here…
  2. Compete anytime you want before the end of the month for each World Series Event.
  3. Record the distance of your race with a GPS enabled device (watch, phone, etc.) or on a standard track*.
  4. Video your obstacle completions. You might need a power source, external battery, or more than one device if memory and electrical charge are an issue. You can use time-lapse provided each obstacle repetition can be easily verifiedPost your video to YouTube.
  5. Login to your account and enter your time, video and distance verification (the screenshot of your run verification) under the Activities Tab (or image of your event verification form) the appropriate category.
  6. Post your video to Instagram Stories, Facebook, etc. and tag @worldocr #ocrworldseriesV

  9. No appeal for late submissions.

For Competitive Categories, add additional evidence of obstacle completion:

  1. Photo of distance verification (tape measure, watch, app, website, etc.)
  2. 2nd photo for elapsed (total) time verification. This can be clock time (time of day) showing the start and finish. You can sync your device to Strava to obtain total / elapsed time if you’re ap
  3. Video link for verification of obstacle order. Video angle and speed must allow clear judging of obstacle order (including run order), completion and form. Increased video speed (2x, 4x, etc.) is allowed provided it allows easy judging. If video speed is adjusted, race officials decide if the speed is suitable for judging.
  4. Including a video of the entire race is ideal but not mandatory. This may be useful to remove doubts as to rule compliance, distance and time.

*If you don’t have access to a GPS tracker, you can use a measured athletic track (100m, 400m, etc.), football field, basketball court, or similar and show it in your video. Alternatively have an official from your national federation, national sporting association, National Olympic Committee, or credible witness verify the distance. Download the verification form below and upload as your screenshot.

The scoreboard is live and keeps accurate rankings as new times are entered, so make sure to check back throughout the day and send daps to your friends as they complete the workout.
