HYROX is the fitness race for Every Body. If you are over 16 years old and want to take on the challenge, you are more than welcome at HYROX.  With Pro, Open, Doubles and Relay Divisions, there is a race for every one. There are no maximum time caps or qualifications necessary. Did you know that our oldest competitor is 73 years old? And still going strong!

HYROX is growing rapidly around the world with new countries and cities 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 100,000 square meters of fitness, HYROX would cover 2 football fields!

In order to qualify for the HYROX World Championships, you need to participate in any of our upcoming global races.  Depending on your division and age group, a certain number of qualifying slots are awarded at each race.  If you are one of those great performers, you will receive an invitation and have up to 48 hours to claim your spot, otherwise it will be allocated to the next competitor. Please note that there are no qualification spots for the HYROX Relay. At the HYROX World Championships in Las Vegas in 2022, there were over 1,200 participants from 21 countries.

There are eleven age groups within the individual divisions, five age groups within the doubles division and 2 for the Relay.  The age groups are broken down as follows:

Your start time will be emailed to you a week prior to the event so make sure you keep an eye out. You will also receive the Athlete Guide with all the official and practical information needed. Each division has their own start time slots. The time slots for the divisions will be communicated earlier so you have an indication of your start time. It is recommended that you arrive 90 minutes before your start time in order to allow enough time to register and warm up.

HYROX is an official sport with global rankings and results. Please click on the links below to view the competition rulebooks for the different divisions.

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.

This will depend on your fitness level. The average HYROX finisher time last season was 1 hour and 32 minutes.  But the race has no time cap, there were finishers taking 3 hours whilst Hunter Mcintyre and Lauren Weeks hold the HYROX World Record in 55 and 63 minutes respectively.

The training section of the website provides you with all the necessary information. Whether you want to train at home, at a local HYROX partner gym or through a digital fitness app, there are several ways to get HYROX ready.  HYROX is currently working with the University of Hamburg and are evaluating the strength vs endurance ratio of training and competing.  Results so far show it is perfectly balanced.
