Special thanks to OCR Africa and OSF South Africa for designing and testing Race 5.
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 World Championships will be in November with the top Elite Athletes competing in a globally broadcast TV show.
Only one race submission is allowed each month.
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…

Instructional video below
It is the responsibility of each athlete to provide verifiable information to ensure the distance, time and all obstacles and runs are completed in order. This rule takes precedence over all other rules. An athlete can provide the Event Verification Form (below) to support their claim of completion.
The distance must be verified using a GPS enabled device or video on a standard athletic track, football field or similar.
Time is total time (also shown as elapsed time, clock time, or just time.) Moving time does not count, if enabled, you must show start to finish time which includes the time taken to do the obstacles.
If you are in a small space you may do 100 Jumping Jacks per 100m equivalent. You must do a squat every 10 repetitions for accurate counting and judging.
You video is used to verify obstacle completion and form. We recommend you show these in the correct sequence including the runs. For avoidance of doubt it is best to include the entire obstacle / run sequence.
- A 10-second penalty will be assessed for each incomplete, incorrect or unverifiable obstacle repetition.
- A 30-minute penalty will be assessed for no video verification of obstacles.
- A 30-minute penalty will be assessed for no distance verification of runs or carries.
- Incomplete or short running distance will result in DSQ.
- You can make up the distance at the end of your GPS device registers short.
- If you use a standard track or field of a known distance you may use this to verify the distance provided you show all runs on video. Football fields vary in length. Make sure you verify the distance!
- General OCR Competition Rules apply.
- We expect everyone to be polite, courteous and sportsmanlike.
- Cheating or unruly behaviour, on-line or otherwise, may result in disqualification.
- The World OCR Code of Conduct and Code of Ethics apply.
- Elite (no age requirements)

RESULTS & RANKINGS
Individual results can be sorted by country, continent and overall (for the entire world!) Results and rankings are tabulated after registration closes each month.
Team rankings work the same way, the lowest score wins!
Video verification will be used to validate obstacle completion*. If you cannot prove completion, you may be excluded from the results and rankings. Videos are public and available for public review and verification.
Anywhere! Distance is verified by phone, wearable GPS enabled app or national federation official*. Your running routes and obstacle locations are solely at your discretion, but you must upload screenshots of your run route, total distance and time to the digital results board.
All finishers receive a digital finisher medal, national, continental and global results and rankings!
All times are US Eastern (GMT – 5 hours):
World Series #5 September 15 – 30
World Series #6 October 15 – 31
Plan your race so that you have time to upload the verification video and information by the time the race closes. This can take a couple of days in some countries so be sure to finish your race with plenty of time.
World Series Finals November for top-ranked Elite will be broadcast with live commentary.
- Register for free here…
- Compete anytime you want before the end of the month for each World Series Event.
- Record the distance of your race with a GPS enabled device (watch, phone, etc.) or on a standard track*.
- 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 verified. Post your video to YouTube.
- 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.
- Post your video to Instagram Stories, Facebook, etc. and tag @worldocr #ocrworldseriesV
- For countries with limited access to technology and related infrastructure, please work with your national federation. Contacts your federation here…
- Deadline for submission is 3rd of the following month.
- No appeal for late submissions.
For Competitive Categories, add additional evidence of obstacle completion:
- Photo of distance verification (tape measure, watch, app, website, etc.)
- 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
- 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.
- 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.
