Competition rules

  

  • ABSOLUTLEY NO prior knowledge of course.
  • All athletes will get a course walk through with the judges to go over rules and ask questions prior to the start of the competition.  This is the only time questions will be allowed.
  • Ask it or risk it applies to each obstacle. Don’t try it without asking.
  • After the walk through all athletes will be escorted to isolation room and can not watch any athletes compete.  At this time all devices phones, computers, tablets and any other web devices will be checked in/not allowed in the quarantine room.
  • Athletes will be required to post to social media prior to their run to let fans know when they will be live on Twitch.  This will be supervised.

  • There will be no mulligans. If you fail and obstacle you move on to the next until your second fail. 
  • A QUALIFIER Competition course will have a min of 6 obstacles youth, 7 obstacles teen and 8 obstacles adult/pro with a 2 obstacles fails ending the run. If an athlete fails 2 obstacles in a QUALIFIER their run will end.  
  • Each athlete will be given no more then 40 seconds between each obstacle, however this will count in the total course time. 
  • The judge will give a  Competed, Not Completed, 25 second reminder and a 7 second countdown to begin the next obstacle. Judges will start the timer as soon as the previous obstacle is complete.
  • Qualifier course may have time limits, if this is the case the time limit will be disclosed with the rules.
  • Every obstacle will have specific, visibly marked, start and ending point. If a line is crossed even by a hair the obstacle is lost. This is based on judge’s discretion, there will be no video reviews.
  • If an obstacle is done differently then described in the rules, the competitor will risk losing that obstacle and point or points associated with it.
  • Each obstacle will be rewarded points for completion.  Amount of points each obstacle is worth will not be disclosed to competitors.  This forcing every competitor to try their best on every obstacle.
  • Athletes must try every obstacle.
  • Multiplier points will be added by completing previously approved string of obstacles.  Multipliers will be discussed during rules.
  • If more than one competitor completes all the obstacles the overall time of each will decide the winner.  
  • Athletes will have only one try at each obstacle. If you fail to complete for any reason, your 40 second timer starts for the next obstacle.  40 second time will count against your overall course time.
  • Finish times will be kept at the completion of each obstacle to judge against others who fail at the same point. 
  • In the event of an obstacle malfunctions or breaks the athlete will be allowed to return back to the starting area (last obstacle finished) or choose a rerun from the start of the course. The rerun will happen immediately after the malfunction/break is corrected. The course judge will determine when the athlete is adequately rested. If the "start from the beginning" is chosen the strikes from the initial run will carry over.

                           1. Course not being reset.

                           2. Obstacle breaking
