The Odyssey is unique in that competitors are switching between the disciplines of running and swimming multiple times throughout the event. Although we welcome athletes on the slower side of the racing spectrum, we feel as if a basic endurance racing experience is important in order to toe this starting line. Therefore, please understand that the following qualifications must be met in order to gain entry into The Odyssey. Evidence of having met at least one of the following qualification standards will be requested within the registration process: 

2-Hour Division (Short Course) Division*
