The International Obstacle Sports Federation (OSF) is the world governing body for obstacle sports, obstacle course racing (OCR) and related disciplines. We are a not for profit organization and do not pursue any objectives for our own gains.
The OSF is a not-for-profit independent international organisation made up of volunteers to represent the needs of the athletes. The OSF President presides over all its activities, while the OSF Congress and Executive Board are responsible for taking the main decisions for the organisation. Member national federations represent the athletes in the OSF Congress and propose and vote on policies and rules for their benefit.
The Mission of OSF is to promote the sport of Obstacle Course Racing and it's related sports and disciplines throughout the world, to lead Obstacle Sports, and meet the requirements as specified by the International Olympic Committee and the International Paralympic Committee.
The goal of the International Obstacle Sports Federation is to contribute to the greater good of human kind by educating all through participation in sport, without discrimination or bias of any kind. We aim to facilitate mutual understanding, collaboration, friendship and fairness between the athletes and all parties of interest.
The OSF facilitates safety, fairness and opportunities for athletes to compete at every level. This includes international results and rankings, officials, training, rule enforcement, insurance services, coaching, training camps, event information, event services, news, education, adjudication and more.
