Obstacle course RACING is back.

UKOSF has worked with a number of obstacle training facilities to offer a series of competitive short course time trials across the country. You will race against the clock to appear on a national leaderboard for each location broken down by gender and individual age groups. The winners will be immortalised on our website at the end of August as the best short course obstacle specialists in the country. What better way to support training facilities around the UK.

Each course will be individually designed by the training facility, operating under the following UKOSF guidelines.

  • Every location will have at least 10 obstacles (and probably a lot more) and be between 200m and 3K in length.
  • Courses will be available to run on selected days between Friday, June 15th and Sunday, August 23rd 2020. Contact the training venue for more details.
  • The obstacle list and course for each location will be published ahead of time, and will not change.
  • Each obstacle will have clear rules documented by the venue and available to read before you race.
  • Training facilities will either have penalties for obstacle failures or operate the World OCR 3 band penalty system.
  • Course times will be recorded by a marshal (i.e. not self-timed).

To take part you simply need to contact the location you would like to race at and register with them. You will need your UKOSF membership number so we can add you to the national leaderboards. Your age group will be based on your date of birth on June 19th, 2020. If you are not a UKOSF member, it’s quick and easy to sign up, and you can register for free if you are a key worker or have been impacted by the coronavirus. Visit our membership page for more details.

You can take part in the competition at one of the following locations:
