World Obstacle has adopted the World Anti-Doping Agency Code (the “Code”). FISO Anti-Doping Rules are adopted and implemented in compliance with FISO’s responsibilities under the Code and are in furtherance of FISO’s continuing efforts to prevent doping in Obstacle Sports.

Anti-Doping Rules, like Competition rules, are sport rules governing the conditions under which sport is played. Athletes and other Persons accept these rules as a condition of participation and shall be bound by them. These sport-specific rules and procedures, aimed at enforcing anti-doping policies in a global and harmonized manner, are distinct in nature and, therefore, not intended to be subject to or limited by any national requirements and legal standards applicable to criminal proceedings or employment matters. When reviewing the facts and the law of a given case, all courts, arbitral tribunals and other adjudicating bodies should be aware of and respect the distinct nature of the anti-doping rules in the Code and the fact that these rules represent the consensus of a broad spectrum of stakeholders around the world with an interest in fair sport.

These Anti-Doping Rules shall apply to World Obstacle, each National Federation, each Sub-Sport and each Athlete or other Person involved in the Obstacle Sports activities or any of its National Federations by virtue of the Athlete or other Person’s membership, accreditation or participation in Obstacle Sports, or its National Federations’ activities and/or Events.


Accordingly, these Rules shall apply to all Doping Controls over which World Obstacle and it’s National Federations have jurisdiction including but not limited to FISO World Championships, World Cup Races, World Series events, Continental events, National Federations Championships and series events which are of the format specified by World Obstacle Competition Rules. It is the responsibility of each National Federation to ensure that all national-level Testing on the National Federation’s Athletes complies with these Anti-Doping Rules.

These Anti-Doping Rules shall also apply to all individuals involved in any capacity in Obstacle Sports who are members of World Obstacle, National Member Federations and/or National Anti-Doping Organizations, affiliated members, clubs, teams or associations, as well as to any individuals involved in any Obstacle Sports Competition, Event or activity organized, held, convened or sanctioned by National Federations or National Anti-Doping Organizations or their affiliated members, club, teams or associations. This includes all Athlete Support Personnel who are working with, treating or assisting Athletes or any other individuals described above to participate in or prepare for any and all Obstacle Events or Competitions.​
