HYROX is the fitness race for everybody. If you are at least 16 years old and want to take on the sporting challenge, you are welcome to HYROX! There are four different race formats to choose from, covering every fitness level. The race has no time limits and no qualification is required to participate. Did you know that our oldest participant is 77 years old and crossed the finish line with a smile on his face?

HYROX includes a mix of eight 1km runs alternating with eight different workouts. The individual stations are: (1) SkiErg, (2) Sled Push, (3) Sled Pull, (4) Burpee Broad Jumps, (5) Rowing, (6) Farmers Carry, (7) Sandbag Lunges, and (8) Wall Balls.

The running course will lead around the workout stations. Depending on the location, athletes will run multiple laps to complete one kilometer. Both the running track and the individual workout stations are clearly separated from each other and the entrances and exits are clearly marked.

Open – take on the standard HYROX for a challenging but achievable race for everyone.

Pro – for the experienced racer, heavier weights make for a more challenging experience.

Doubles – find a partner and take on the challenge as a pair, running together but splitting the workload of the exercises.

Relay – come together with your friends or family and race the relay where each member of the team does 2 times 1 km and 2 workouts.

The divisions differ, apart from the number of athletes (single or team), in the weights and the number of repetitions of the movements in the individual workouts. The race course (8*1km) remains the same for each division. An overview of the requirements for each division can be found here.

All participants wear a timing chip around their right ankle, which is handed out at check-in on event day. The race course, as well as all workouts, are linked with timing technology, so that precise timing is guaranteed for each individual athlete. The finisher time and the exact split times of the individual workouts can be used to analyze your own performance afterwards and there is the possibility to compare yourself with other athletes worldwide and thus prepare even more specifically for the next race. This link will direct you to the “Results and Rankings” overview, sorted by the HYROX Seasons. Via the “SEARCH” button you can easily search for your final race times by entering your name.

That depends on your fitness level. The average finisher time last season was 01:32h. However, the race has no time limit: some finishers take 3 hours, while Hunter Mcintyre and Mikaela Norman hold the HYROX world record at 55 and 60 minutes respectively.

HYROX is growing rapidly around the world and new countries and cities are constantly being added to the calendar. HYROX is normally organized in large indoor expo venues to make sure we can host as many athletes as possible. With over 12.000m2 of fitness, HYROX would cover 3 soccer pitches!

As HYROX is a race for Every Body, we have tried to make the exercises as
accessible as possible, so although there are basic movement standards, it
should be easily executed.

At each event, Head Judges share responsibility for the 8 workout stations and the running course, ensuring that the event runs smoothly and that competition standards are maintained. They are supported by a large pool of judges who keep a close eye on the action at all times.

You can easily register for an event online via the HYROX website. Here you will find an overview of all events offered in the current season.

Sportograf will be on-site to capture all the epic moments from the race. The Sportograf add on gets you high resolution photos for you to commemorate your triumphant race finish!

Add “Race with a Friend” to your shopping cart when you place your order if you want to make sure you start with friends or family members at the same time (that means in the same starting wave). Whether it’s a head-to-head race or emotional support – Race with a Friend makes it possible! Important: You can start together with another athlete in the same starting wave, as long as you register for the same SINGLE division (not cross-gender). Only one participant has to pay the additional fee.

At each race, the top finishers in each age group qualify for the World Championships, the ultimate HYROX showdown at the end of each HYROX Season. Qualification slots are given in proportion to the number of athletes taking part. The exact number will always be published in advance in the Athlete Guide for the respective event. If you have qualified for the World Championships, we will send you an individual code by email, which will give you access to the registration form for the World Championships. The code is valid for 48 hours. Please note: This code enables you to register for the World Championships. The code is not a free code, but an access code for the sign-up. A starting place at the World Championships has, like the normal events, a ticket fee. A World Championships ticket is excluded from the regulations on rebooking.

After the 48h deadline, the second qualification round will start. This means that qualifying places that are not accepted will be given to the next athlete in the backlog procedure. The 48-hour deadline also applies here. If a code is not redeemed within the deadline, the starting place for the respective person will be forfeited. The validity of the code will NOT be extended.

The Physical Fitness Test gives you an indication of your fitness level and an assessment of which division is suitable for you. Please note that there are no time limits for the HYROX Race and you can register for any division without qualifying. The P’F “T is only intended to help you decide which division to choose. The test is held in hundreds of gyms each season and consists of this workout:

1000m run (outdoors or on a treadmill at 2% incline).
50 Burpee Broad Jumps
100 Lunges
1000m Row
30 Hand Release Push Ups
100 Wallballs (6 kg men / 4 kg women)

There is even a separate P’F”T ranking for global benchmarking! Find your P’F”T here!
