Ultimate OCR takes place in Hacksta, Stockholm, Sweden the 29th of April 2017.
A challenging obstacle course race of 9+ km running and 40 obstacles.
It is your performance that matters and everyone can join!

 

9+ km running

The course goes through the various substrates through the forest of Hacksta.
Obstacles will meet the runner along the road and the major obstacles will be placed in locations easily accessible to the public and spectators.

 

40 obstacles.

We believe that the ultimate obstacle course race includes elements of climbing, strength and running.
The great difficulty should not be to clear all the obstacles, the great difficulty lies in getting first of all in the elite!

 

No penalties, however, a wristband.

We do not believe in punishment.
At the Ultimate OCR everyone starts with a wristband.
You get unlimited number of attempts to complete each obstacle. If you give up, your wristband will be cut and you can continue the race.
Only runners with the wristband can stand on the podium and the results list will first and foremost be ranked after those who managed to keep the wristband.

But, you´ll get your time and your medal of honour whether you still have the wristband or not.

 

Timing and team competition

Every runner who crosses the finish line gets a their time registered and their individual position.
The runners who have entered the same team name, form a team.
Teams with at least 4 runners will automatically participate in the team event where the four best times are counted within the team.
A team must consist of a minimum of 4 runners.

(Elite Runners can not simultaneously compete in the team event.)
