What types of Series & Championship events will there be in 2024 in Europe?
Starting in 2024, we’re simplifying the structure of our championships to follow a simple progressive hierarchy.
There will be three tiers of championships:
- National Series: A three-event series (in most countries), consisting of a Sprint, Super, and Beast with a prize purse for the overall series winners
- Regional Championships: A single event weekend per region with short and long format events
- World Championships: One major World Championship event per discipline. The 2024 calendar includes championships for 3K, Beast, Ultra, Trifecta, World’s Toughest Mudder, and OCRWC.
