RULES FOR ELITES

image4

8:20 Elite Wave

Overall – Athletes must complete all obstacles as specified in the Titan Elite Rules in order to be eligible for Awards/Prizes, which are awarded to the Top 3 Male and Top 3 Female athletes Overall and Masters Division competing in the Titan Elite Wave.

Rule Changes – For safety or logistical reasons, Titan management may change/alter the rules for an obstacle at any time. If a race official or obstacle attendee instructs you to do something that is contrary to the written rules of an obstacle, follow their verbal instructions. Should you disregard verbal instructions from race officials or obstacle attendees, you will be reported to Titan management who will then rule on the matter.

Attempts – Obstacles may be attempted an unlimited number of times. If you are unable to complete an obstacle on your first attempt, you must make your way to the far right lane (Retry lane) or obstacle area to make additional attempts. This is to avoid impeding athletes behind you who are attempting an obstacle for the first time.

Signage – When necessary, we will have signs EM - Elite Men and EW - Elite Women to indicate eligible lanes to run in.  We will also provide a sign if needed that would assist those who are shorter and can't reach the start of obstacles.

Titan Elite Wristbands – Each Titan Elite athlete will be given a Titan Elite wristband. (If you do not receive a wristband prior to entering the start line corral, contact a staff member immediately to request one.) Running without the Titan Elite wristband disqualifies you from prizes/awards. The Titan Elite wristband must be worn in addition to your timing chip and bib.

Titan Elite Wristbands – If an athlete cannot complete an obstacle and decides to move on to the next obstacle without trying the physical challenge, they must immediately turn in their Titan Elite wristband to the nearest race official or obstacle attendee. If for some reason there is no race official or obstacle attendee present, please remove your wristband and place it on the ground beside the obstacle. If you do not turn in your wristband at the non-completed obstacle you will be reported via radio to Titan management and disqualified from eligibility for prizes/awards.

USING GEAR: It goes without saying, but obstacles must be attempted with apparatus set to complete obstacle. Obstacles aren't built with things hanging from them so you can use the outer trusses. Example: rings and not the top rail, balls and not the top of a structure. 

PLEASE NOTE: Athletes who still have their wristbands at the finish line MUST check in at the RESULTS TENT with the finish line staff. If you do not check in at the results tent to let us know you successfully completed all obstacles and still have your Titan Elite wristband, you will NOT be eligible for prizes/awards.

Obstacle Non-Completion – Even if you can’t complete an obstacle and have lost your wristband, you can still finish the race and receive your finish time. However, you will no longer be eligible to receive prizes/awards.

Assistance – No physical assistance is allowed at any time during the Titan Elite wave. Do not help another athlete with any obstacles. If assistance is provided or received, this will result in obstacle non-completion.

Bib – Titan Elite athletes MUST display their bib prominently on their person at all times during the race. Bibs must be worn on either front of shirt or front of shorts/legs. Do not place bibs on: arm, head, back, etc.

Course – Athletes must follow ALL course markings. If you become lost or off course, please return to the last known “on course” location. If you cannot find your way back, find a member of the Titan team and they will assist you. Titan management will have decision-making authority if any issues arise with completing the course as intended.

Obstacles – If you do not understand how to complete an obstacle, please ask a race official or obstacle attendee and then follow instructions as specified.

Fair Play – You may not intentionally impede the progression of another competitor. This behavior may result in obstacle non-completion and the loss of your Titan Elite wristband.

Checking Your Results – Titan Elite results will be broken down into two categories: one for those who successfully completed all obstacles and kept their Titan Elite wristband and the other for those who did not successfully complete all obstacles and lost their Titan Elite wristband.

Category 1 (eligible for prizes/awards)

1 – Titan Elite Male – 100% Obstacle Completion

1 – Titan Elite Female – 100% Obstacle Completion

Category 2 (not eligible for prizes/awards*)

2 – Titan Elite Male – Non-Completed Obstacle(s)

2 – Titan Elite Female – Non-Completed Obstacle(s)

Clothing & Footwear – You may wear gloves, compression gear, padding, knee/joint braces, tape, etc. No spikes or cleats allowed.

Gear – You may not carry any gear that is used to provide physical assistance with an obstacle. All gear, such as nutrition, clothing, etc., must go through, under, and over all obstacles with you.
