UK OSF Short Course Competition
In 2020 UKOSF worked with a number of obstacle training facilities to offer a series of competitive short course time trials across the country. Athletes raced against the clock to appear on a national leaderboard for each location broken down by gender and individual age groups. What better way to support training facilities around the UK. A select number of athletes also qualified for one of two UKOSF Regional Time Trial Finals.
Each course was individually designed by the training facilities, operating under the following UKOSF guidelines.
Every location had at least 10 obstacles (and probably a lot more) and was between 100m and 3K in length.
Courses were available to run on selected days between Friday, June 19th and Sunday, September 20th 2020.
The obstacle list and course for each location was published ahead of time, and was not changed.
Each obstacle had clear rules documented by the venue and was available to read before you race.
Training facilities either had penalties for obstacle failures or operated the World Obstacle 3 band penalty system.
Course times were recorded by a marshal (i.e. not self-timed).
Adaptations were also made for any para athletes who wandted to take part.
You could take part in the competition at one of the following locations:
Athletes must act with integrity on the course and follow the outlined rules and penalties detailed by each training location.
Athlete age will be based on their date of birth on June 19th, 2020.
Athletes can run the course more than once (additional costs may apply), only their fastest time will count.
An athlete can not record their own time.
All athletes must be UKOSF members to be included on the national leaderboards.
Results will be broken down into gender and division (Under 9’s, 9-12, 13-17, Senior (18-39) and Masters (40+) with an overall location leaderboard as well. Note each training facility will have it’s own rules on how old a racer needs to be to be able to take part.
