HYROX is a global fitness race for Every Body. Participants from all around the world compete in the exact same format. The race starts with a 1 km run, followed by 1 functional movement, which repeats 8 times, taking place in large indoor venues, creating a unique stadium like atmosphere for all participants.
52% of gym members now cite fitness as their primary sport. Fitness is the largest sport in the world and HYROX is the first mass participation event that gives everyday gym-goers their own race to train for. HYROX bridges the gap between traditional endurance events with functional fitness, to create a race format for Every Body.
Hyrox is truly accessible: with 4 different racing categories to choose from, HYROX is for everyone no matter the fitness level:
Open – take on the standard HYROX for a challenging but achievable race for everyone.
Pro – for the experienced racer, heavier weights make for a more challenging experience.
Doubles – find a partner and take on the challenge as a pair, running together but splitting the workload of the exercises.
Relay – come together with your friends or family and race the relay where each member of the team does 2 times 1 km and 2 workouts.
All participants wear a timing chip and receive official finishing times, with comparable results through HYROX’S global rankings across all events, divisions and age-groups. With a detailed post race report, you will receive all your split times which makes you want to train harder and race smarter for the next time.
