What it takes to run with the elite


To compete as an Elite athlete in the Tour, you must have finished as top 20 in one of our races, as either an Elite or Qualifier. Athletes with top 20 placements in OCR WC (Pro Heat) or OCR EC (15 km) are also eligible.

Admitted elite athletes will be notified personally before each season with further information about the upcoming season.

About Qualifiers


If you have other substantial merits, or previously have qualified for the elite, you can apply for a spot as a wildcard. You will then start with the elite in a race. If you finish in the top 20, you have earned your spot in the Elite.

To apply for wildcard, contact us. Make sure to submit your name, merits and which race you wish to run.
