Competitive Waves: These waves are competing for podium awards. Men must do all Black/Advanced obstacles, and Women must do all Blue/Intermediate obstacles (but may also do Black/Advanced obstacles if they choose). If an Athlete in the competitive waves can not complete an obstacle at their prescribed level, they may still continue to complete the course but are disqualified from receiving a podium award if they finish with a top finishing time. At this time we do not issue penalties if someone can not complete their prescribed level or has to skip an obstacle; they just lose podium eligibility.
Open Waves: In these waves we encourage Athletes to at least attempt the Green/Novice level obstacles. Modifications are allowed. We do not issue penalties if an Athlete is unable to complete an obstacle or has to skip. This is YOUR course, and we want you to have fun! Remember which obstacles you didn’t complete or had to skip, train up for them, and try again at the next race!
