The Dead End Race Series is proud to be among the chosen races for our Elite Racers to compete for the chance to qualify for the chance to register and participate in the premier Obstacle Race Event of the year: The OCR World Championships on October 13-15 2017 in Blue Mountain, Ontario.

All individual competition participants in our ''qualifying'' Elite Heats at The Dead End Race Series who do qualify, must submit proof of their results to the OCRWC Organization at the time of registration. The Dead End Race has a ''Mandatory Obstacle'' rule which means if you want to qualify, you need to attempt and complete every obstacle on our course.

Here is the list of our 2017 DEAD END RACE SERIES qualifying events and the amount of racers who can qualify from each Elite Heat:

DEAD END RACE STADIUM EDITION - FALL 2017:
If the 4km Stadium race takes place before October 1st, it will be a 2017 qualifier. If our stadium event takes place after October 15th, it will be considered a 2018 OCRWC Qualifier.

Age Groups:
18-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-99

Important note:
No more than 50% of an age group or a gender in a division at a specific event can qualify for the OCRWC (e.g. if an age group has only 10 athletes in it, only the top five athletes are deemed qualifiers).



*Notice. For those who do not qualify but wish to be present at the OCR World Championships on October 13-15, athletes may also compete in OCRWC restricted Journeyman & Journeywoman Divisions. These waves are reserved for the most passionate Obstacle Course Racers. There are no finishing results requirement (i.e. third in your age group) to compete in this wave. Instead, athletes are required to complete ANY four obstacle course races. Non-cash prizes are awarded for the winners of these divisions and space is strictly limited.
