HYROX World Championships

HYROX World Championships

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.


Created by one of the most experienced and successful mass participation race event organizers in the world, Christian Toetzke, together with x3 Olympic Medallist and World Champion, Moritz Fuerste and well known marketing expert Michael Trautmann, HYROX has experienced remarkable growth in Europe and the US, with some events seeing over 4,000 participants and 10.000 spectators, making it the world’s largest mass participation Fitness Race.
