Obstacle Course Racing combines challenging obstacles with running at varying lengths. You'll be swinging, jumping, climbing, etc. on a wide variety of different objects and running in between some of them. So it's like Ninja, but you'll be out of breath

Ninja Competition Rules

The ages and times are set for course set up only.  9 year olds will not compete against 12 year olds.  The age categories to determine final rankings are as follows:

 

Athletes will have 5 minutes (5:00) to complete the course or get as far as they can. Keep in mind that points have more effect on placing than total time does. Regardless of total time, an athlete that completes the whole course without failure will always place better than an athlete who did it faster but lost a point through failing an obstacle. 

Athletes must make a true attempt on every obstacle. If an athlete fails to give a notable effort, they will lose an extra point on top of the points taken for failing the obstacle. For example, if an obstacle is worth 2 points, the athlete will lose 3 points. 2 for failing the obstacle and 1 as a penalty. 

The supporting structure of obstacles may not be used at any time. This is defined by the Head Judge. Some examples of support structure are, chains/straps supporting grips, material holding obstacle together, or anything else that would be considered NOT part of an obstacle.

“Topping” is not allowed. Topping is using the flat surface above a grip in order to bypass the intended use of the grip. Some grips are exceptions to this rule (cannonball). This is determined by the Head Judge.

Competitors have one RETRY and must use it on the obstacle failed. The RETRY is worth 1 point, so if the entire course is completed without needing to use a RETRY, an additional point is awarded to total obstacle points.
Example- Course with 10 obstacles:
a) Athlete A – Full course completion, no RETRY = 11 pts
b) Athlete B – Fails once, RETRY used, fails again, completes rest 
of course = 9pts
c) Athlete C – Fails once, RETRY used successfully, completes 
rest = 10 pts

Times will be calculated to the hundredth of a second. (Ex: 01.45.26) If the obstacle needs to be reset post-failure. Reset the obstacle, once reset, the Head Judge will give the athlete the go ahead to begin their next attempt. Time to reset will count against an athlete.

The RETRY must be used on the 1st obstacle failed. This makes it more likely that an athlete will give a TRUE attempt on the obstacle 

The Top 8 finishers in each category will go head to head in the finals round for final rankings.
