USA Obstacle Course Racing

Anti-Doping


United States Obstacle Course Racing has adopted the World Anti-Doping Code (the "Code"). These Anti-Doping Rules are adopted and implemented in compliance with the USA OCR's responsibilities under the Code and are in furtherance of the USA OCR's continuing efforts to prevent doping in the sport of Obstacle Course Racing and related sports in the United States.

Anti-Doping Rules, like Competition rules, are sport rules governing the conditions under which sport is played. Athletes and other Persons accept these rules as a condition of participation and shall be bound by them. These sport specific rules and procedures, aimed at enforcing anti-doping policies in a global and harmonized manner, are distinct in nature and, therefore, not intended to be subject to or limited by any national requirements and legal standards applicable to criminal proceedings or employment matters. When reviewing the facts and the law of a given case, all courts, arbitral tribunals and other adjudicating bodies should be aware of and respect the distinct nature of the anti-doping rules in the Code and the fact that these rules represent the consensus of a broad spectrum of stakeholders around the world with an interest in fair sport.
