Who We Are

World OCR is a not-for-profit independent international organisation made up of volunteers to represent the needs of the athletes. The President presides over all its activities, while the Congress and Executive Committee are responsible for taking the main decisions for the organisation. Member national federations represent their athlete members in the FISO Congress and propose and vote on policies and rules for their benefit.


World OCR is a federative, democratic organisation formed by and for the athletes. It facilitates safety, fairness and opportunities for athletes to compete at every level, including OCR World Championships, World Series and Continental Championships. This includes international results and rankings, officials, rule enforcement, coaching, training camps, event information, event services, news, education, adjudication and more. 

Athlete Advisory Council

The Athlete  Advisory Council (AAC) is a standing committee of World OCR, made up of elite athletes, that provides opinion and advice on FISO policies that effect obstacle sports  worldwide. The  AAC may appoint athletes to FISO nominating committees, panels  empowered to resolve grievances, and any committee that prepares,  approves or implements programs regarding the selection of international  championships, Olympic, and Continental Games team  members.
