OCR Virtual World OCR Series

It's real, It’s on-line and It’s free!

Anyone can compete to be national, continental and/or world champion at each event and for the series! The goal of the virtual world series is to help you stay fit and compare yourself with anyone (or everyone) else in the world. This is primarily designed to fun, a bit competitive if you want, and above all ... fun!

The World Series is six mixed reality races that crown the World Series champions after the final race in October. Points are awarded for each race and points from your top four races count toward the final standings.

Accumulated points for the top three elite athletes in each category, from each country are automatically included in the World Team Rankings.


AWARDS

Gold Silver and Bronze virtual medals will be awarded across all categories and the final medal table will show the top performing athletes and countries!

National Federations may require additional requirements for athletes in each country. Contact your national governing body here for details.
