HYROX is coming back to Essen. Last year, Tobias Lautwein was the only Athlete able perform a sub-1-hour finish. Hundreds of others would go on to complete their first HYROX challenge or set a PB. Will we see you in the Roxzone this year, for the third edition of HYROX Essen in November?

The best athletes of each age group can qualify, within all divisions, and from any event for the World Championships.
Each qualifier needs to make his/her decision within 48 hours after receiving the invitational email. If someone does not use their race slot, the next best athlete will be contacted and will be offered the amazing opportunity to become the HYROX World Champion!
There are eleven age groups within the individual divisions and five age groups within the double’s division.
The age groups are broken down as shown below:
The best athletes of each age group will qualify for the HYROX World Championships. The final slots will be announced the day following the event. Please check the athletes guides on each event page for more details!
*HYROX Pro Division’s last age group is 65+
Your start time will be emailed to you a week prior to the event.
Each division will have their own start time. Your average division takes 1.5 hours to complete. One week before the event we will announce the time frames for each division. It is recommended that you arrive up to 2 hours before your division start time in order to allow enough time to register, warm up and go through a technical briefing.
Everyone is separated by their division and will begin the competition in waves of 25-30 people at a time, allowing for enough room in between workout stations.
This will depend on your fitness level. The average HYROX finisher time in 2021 was 1.5 hours. The HYROX competition is comparable to a sprint triathlon or a fast half marathon.
