  • Youth division & Adult Stage 1: Based off a point system. Each obstacle must be attempted 1 time without using their 1 re-try. Upon failing an obstacle, the competitor can decide whether to move on and take the fail, or use their re-try to potentially gain a point. No half points or percentages will be awarded, only full point or no point.

If competitor passes the obstacle they re-tried, the next fail will end their run. Time will be lapped after every obstacle completed. If competitor fails on an obstacle, time will reflect the last obstacle completed.
  • One re-try can be used for the entire course. Once the competitor has decided to move on to the next obstacle in the course without using their re-try, they cannot go back to obstacles failed even if they still have their re-try.
