OCR Virtual National And World Series

It's real, It’s on-line and It’s free!

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!


The US National Series results are taken from the OCR World Series and consists of  six mixed reality races that crown the National and World Series champions after the final race in October. Points are awarded for each race and points from your top four races 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.


A new set of obstacle exercises will be announced for each World Series Event. Feel free to send us your suggestions, this is for you! Contact technical@worldocr.org


Race as many times as you like each month! The most recent information entered counts in the results and rankings.  REGISTER HERE
