Rules for racers competing for medals and cash prizes

  1. Cash Prizes- All general rules apply to racers competing for the cash prizes.
  2. Men’s Heat- The men’s heat will begin at 8:30am. Racers must be in the start corral 5 minutes prior to the start time.
  3. Women’s Heat- The women’s heat will begin at 8:45am. Racers must be in the start corral 5 minutes prior to the start time.
  4. Shoes- Absolutely no shoes with metal spikes or cleats. Anybody wearing them will be disqualified. Racers must complete the race with the shoes they started with. If a shoe comes off, the racer must complete the rest of the race with their shoes, whether by carrying them or putting them back on. Racers may set their shoes aside to complete an obstacle, and then return to pick up their shoes.
  5. Race Timing- Your finish time and placement will be determined by chip time. It’s possible that someone who starts after you or finishes after you could have a better race time and beat you.
  6. Awards Ceremony- Once the race results have been finalized, the awards ceremony will be held on the main stage. You must pick up your award at the event; they will not be mailed post-race.
  7. Rule Changes- For safety or logistical purposes, Myrtle Beast management may change or alter the rules for an obstacle at any time. If a race official or obstacle attendee instructs you to do something, follow their verbal instructions. Should you disregard verbal instructions from race officials or obstacle attendees, you will be reported to Myrtle Beast Management who will then rule on the matter.
  8. Attempts- Obstacles may be attempted an unlimited number of times. (There are no workout alternatives.) If you are unable to complete an obstacle on your first attempt, you may use any lane to try the obstacle again, however, you must go to the end of the line if people are waiting for the lane you want. If there is an open lane that nobody is waiting for, you may restart immediately. This is to avoid impeding athletes behind you who are attempting an obstacle for the first time.
  9. Podium Eligibility- To be eligible for the podium, racers must give an honest “good faith” attempt at each obstacle. Any obstacle directly bypassed without solid attempt will be grounds for disqualification and your race bib will be removed. Racers Bib numbers will be reported to the scorekeepers for racers who attempted but did not complete an obstacle, they will keep their bib and be marked as still eligible to qualify. This is important for the unusual circumstance that no racers completed 100% of the obstacles.
  10. Cheating- Racers who are caught skipping lanes, violating any rules or cheating in any manner will be disqualified.
  11. Course- Athletes must follow all course markings. If you become lost, please return to the last known location on the course. If you do not understand the direction of the course, find a race official to assist you.
  12. Obstacles- If you do not understand how to complete an obstacle, please ask an attendee, and follow the instructions specified.
  13. Fair play- You must not intentionally impede the progression of another competitor. This behavior may result in disqualification.
  14. Results- Myrtle Beast results will be broken down into three categories:
    1. Racers who successfully completed all the obstacles and finished the race.
    2. Racers who did not complete all obstacles but made an honest “good faith” attempt and finished the race.
    3. Racers who were disqualified.
