Hyrox Dallas 2021 – What You Need To Know

hyrox invitational wall balls

Pro & Open Waves

The event will take place April 10, 2021 in Dallas, Texas. As with every Hyrox event, there are pro waves of competition. At the end of the pro waves, the athletes with the fastest times are rewarded. The heats are limited, so someone going in the second wave may finish faster than someone in the first wave and be ahead on the leaderboard.

The top 3 men and women are awarded cash prizes. The payouts for the pro wave are typically $1500/$1000/$500.

For this event, since there will be additional money allotted for the Invitational Wave, the pro prizes will be lowered to $1000/$500/$250.

There are also age group awards, but just like Spartan or Savage, you get the podium pic, but no cash. Same goes for doubles or mixed doubles categories.

In addition, there are open waves all day with scaled weights. No prizes or podiums for open waves.

Hyrox Open Wave

The Invitational

For this first event of the year, Hyrox want to bring out some hand picked talent and showcase some of the best in the world . This invitational wave will be hand picked by Hyrox HQ with input from current champs Lauren Weeks and Hunter McIntyre.

The payouts for the Invitational are $10,000 for first, $3,000 for 2nd and $2,000 for third.

Hunter World Record

The Athletes

The men and women confirmed are below, we will update more athletes as soon as they are locked in.


Hyrox Invitational Row

Hunter McIntyre

Where do we start? Hunter is a former Spartan Champ, a two-time Tough Mudder X Champion, was the holder of the fastest Deka Strong time, and of course, is still the man with the fastest Hyrox time in the world at 57:34. It appears as if Hunter was designed to be the best at Hyrox.

Grant McCartney

Grant has competed on the American Ninja Warrior television show for 5 seasons and his talent along with his winning personality has made him one of their most popular athletes. However, unlike most ninja warrior competitors, Grant is not a slight of build man who was designed to easily swing from bars. Grant is over 6 feet tall and roughly 205 pounds. He ranked 7th at the Spartan Games and has a half Ironman time of just over 5 hours. He held his own at Tough Mudder X against some of the fittest people in the world.

Elijah Muhammad

Anyone who has made it to the CrossFit games has instant credibility, and with a back squat of 475 and a dead lift over 550 pounds, strength will be no issue for him. Unlike a lot of CrossFit athletes, Elijah was a college basketball player for Tennessee Tech, and he has great speed and incredible athleticism. If you want proof, watch his performance at the 2015 CrossFit games.

Eric Hinman

Eric is a CrossFit athlete, so we know he has the strength for Hyrox. Let’s be honest though. Eric is a little on the small side to be a contender to win it all in the CrossFit world. So why would he have a chance against these beasts? Oh, did we forget to mention he has a 17-minute 5km time and is a multi-time Ironman championship competitor? You need a mix of strength, speed, and stamina to be successful in Hyrox. Eric has it all.

Robert Killian

It must be said that if you are an Army ranger, you are bad ass. If you win the Best Ranger Competition, you are next level bad ass. Add to that being a 2nd place finisher and member of the 100-Mile Club at World’s Tougher Mudder along with being a 2-time Spartan World Champion. Well then, you are bad ass at the Robert Killian level.

Lukas Storath

Lukas is Mr. Hyrox. In 2019, Lukas was the Hyrox World Champion and holder of the fastest Hyrox finishing time (58:39), as well as 2nd place in the original Hyrox VCF. In 2020, he came in 2nd place in the Elite 12 Championship. Lukas will be hungry to take back his spot as top dog in the Hyrox world.

David Magida

David has 30 Spartan podiums to his credit, can run a sub 16-minute 5km, a 10km in the low 30-minute range. He was also 11th in the Hyrox VCF, and if not for some issues with the 3rd workout, he would have been a contender for the top spot. More importantly, David wants this win. He did everything possible to get invited to this event.

Matt Kempson

Matt has been around the OCR world for a long time, and it is common knowledge that if it is a hybrid event where one needs massive strength as well as speed, then Matt will be a contender. With an 8th overall finish at Tough Mudder X and having already set a Hyrox time of 1:07:56, he can never be counted out.

Alexander Roncevic

A swim instructor from Vienna would seem like an unlikely contender but take a look at Alexander, and you will see this is no ordinary swim coach. With a Hyrox time of 1:02:29 and a 4th place finish at the latest Hyrox VCF where he caused quite a stir with a submitted 3200m time of 8:25, he has shown that he is ready to compete against the best.

Invited to initial date, out since new April date announced.

Ryan Atkins 

Isaiah Vidal



Lauren Weeks

Lauren’s 2020 was better than yours! She won the Hyrox Elite 12, the Hyrox at Home Championship, and the Hyrox VCF. She also won the OCR Stars Virtual event. She placed 3rd at the Spartan Games. Every time you looked up, Lauren was doing something epic. She is already off to a good start in 2021 with another Hyrox VCF win.

Alyssa Hawley

If you follow Obstacle Course Racing, then you already know the name Alyssa Hawley. She has been a force on the Spartan scene for years with top 5 placements in the US National Series for 2017 and 2018 and also 4th place in 2016 and 3rd place in 2017 at Spartan’s World Championships held in Tahoe. Alyssa had a bit of a sub par performance at the latest Hyrox VCF, but her showing at Hyrox Chicago in 2020 where she bested Lauren Weeks by 14 seconds with an impressive 1:10:30 shows she has what it takes to win this event.

Corinna Coffin

With CrossFit accolades, dozens of Spartan podiums, a 2nd place finish at the Spartan Games, and placing 2nd and then 1st at Tough Mudder X Championships, it seemed Corinna and Hyrox were a match made in heaven. Sadly, due to some struggles with the sled push, the relationship got off to a rocky start. Even with a respectable finishing time of 1:18:27, all that is remembered is the 8 minutes and 56 seconds she spent pushing that sled. Rest assured, she is hungry for redemption.

Viola Oberlander

Viola is a Hyrox specialist. She has the 5th fastest time for women, came 2nd to Lauren in the 2020 Elite 12, and 4th in the most recent Hyrox VCF. Viola has beaten the all time Hyrox women’s record holder Sarah Kholti when they went head-to-head at Hyrox Karlsruhe. Viola is a threat no matter who is on the course.

Faith Cooke

Did someone mention that Hyrox requires power? Well Faith is our girl! She has a top 5 Deka Strong time of 14:13, just seconds behind Lauren and Corrina. She won over all our hearts at the Spartan Games where she placed 6th. We watched in awe as she completely dominated the wrestling and Highland games events and went toe-to-toe with Lauren, Corrina, and CrossFit legend Sam Briggs in all the other strength-based events.

Brooke Bowen

Brooke is representing us in the over 40 crowd. As a Spartan age group Champion, and a qualifier for the Tough Mudder X Championship, along with a 2nd place overall finish at the 2019 Epic Series, she is fit to represent. Brooke finished 14th overall in the 2021 Hyrox VCF right behind former VCF winner Ehea Schuerch. She also has a Deka Strong time of 16:49 and a Hyrox time of 1:31:02.

Renee Metivier

Who has the time it takes to read all of Renee’s accomplishments? I will list a few highlights. She was an Olympic trials qualifier for every Olympic year between 2004 and 2020, has run a 15:15 5km, has run a marathon in 2 hours 27 minutes, and she holds three world records. Unlike most pro runners though, Renee is no stranger to the power game. She likes to lift.

Katie Knight

With a 21-minute 5km and a 1 mile in just under 6 minutes, Katie may not be the fleetest of foot in this group, but her CrossFit background and 4th place finish at OCR Stars shows she has the strength and ability to make up the difference.

Rachel Schriber

If you are thinking I know that name, you probably saw her help introduce the 21.2 workout for the CrossFit Open. She set an impressive time of 10:37. She also announced her presence to the Hyrox world by coming 2nd in the 2021 Hyrox VCF and was pushing Lauren Weeks at every moment. This woman can squat 285, and she ran the 3200 meters in under 12 minutes. She has all the physical tools needed to be in this competition.

Rebecca Hammond

With the ability to run under a 5-minute mile and a 6km under 23 minutes, speed will not be an issue for Rebecca. She has multiple podiums at Spartan Championships, North American Obstacle Course Racing Championships, Obstacle Course Racing World Championships and has been a defender for the Million Dollar Mile television show. She also has a previous Hyrox time of 1:14:07. I don’t see lack of experience being an issue for her either.

Sarah Harrison

Sarah is another great hybrid athlete. She has been a little off the radar since 2018 when she was crushing Tough Mudder X, but that doesn’t mean she has been taking it easy. She made that evident when she showed up with a killer performance at the Hyrox VCF grabbing 3rd and earning her spot in this Hyrox Invitational.

What if I wasn’t invited but think I can win/podium?

Sign up for the pro wave. Kick some ass, win pro wave prizes. Maybe you get invited to the next one?

For example, former Spartan Pro, David Magida, signed up and told us the following:

I think what people are forgetting is that it doesn’t matter if you’re an elite runner or cross fitter.  Because this is neither of those things.  This is a very particular event that suits a very particular type of athlete.  Just like in track.  There are events for sprinters and events for distance runners. And this particular event suits me perfectly. I’m 190 lbs.  I love to move weight. Strength doesn’t phase me.  I just ran a 53 minute 10 miler. I’m in the best shape of my life right now. and I’m going to shock a lot of people.

Is the $5,000 World Record bounty up for grabs this time?


Can I come and watch without competing.


Will they be using TrueForm running machines as we saw in Germany?

No, this will be 1k laps of running between each station.

Names To Watch In 2021 (Men)

Click here to read Names To Watch Women in 2021 (Women)

Until last year, there were only about 7 men who could were capable of podiuming at major race (Hobie, Cody, Atkins, Killian, Woods, Hunter, and Albon). All of that changed in 2019. Suddenly, predicting the top finishers was no longer as easy as it used to be. OCR fans may have been surprised to see Johnny, Veejay, Ryan Kempson, Tyler, and Aaron emerge as contenders, but they were all trending in that direction for years. Let’s take a look at some athletes who I think will make a similar jump next year, assuming OCR returns to normal at some point in 2021.

Richard Hynek (@richard_hynek)

If you someone hadn’t heard of Richard Hynek before the Trifecta WC last year, you definitely knew the name afterwards. Richard ran a dominating Beast on the final leg of the Trifecta WC to win the title by 4:13 over Woods, Killian, Atkins, Newell, and the best racers from throughout Europe. However, his performance in Greece shouldn’t have been much of a surprise. After all, he finished 3rd behind Jon Albon and Albert Soley the year before. Additionally, Hynek finished 14th at Tahoe a month earlier and 16th in 2018. Not a bad resume for someone who is only 21.

Richard Hynek is essentially the Veejay Jones of Europe. After collecting his first podium at the ripe-old age of 18, Richard has added over 20 more since. Seven of those podiums have taken place in the Middle East. What do you get if you combine his experience racing on sand in the Middle East, his phenomenal downhill running skills, and confidence from beating the world’s best racers in Greece? A serious threat to podium at the 2021 Spartan Race World Championship in Abu Dhabi.

Mark Gaudet (@markgaudet85)

There haven’t been too many obstacle races in 2020, but there have been several notable challenges involving OCR-specific fitness this season. One of those was the Burpee 10k, which consisted of 12 rounds of running 800m then doing 20 burpees. Mark completed this challenge in an absurd 45:38.

Let’s break that down real quick. If it took Mark 3 seconds per burpee (a very solid pace for 240 total burpees), that’d be 12:00 worth of burpees. Subtract that out and it means Mark would’ve run his 10k in about 33:30 (5:24 mile pace). That’s absolutely ridiculous, especially considering how much of a toll that burpees take on your body. Needless to say, Mark is one of the best compromised runners in OCR.

Then there was the Ultra Virus 12-hour race in which athletes ran as many 5-mile loops as possible within 12 hours. Mark finished 2nd with 85 miles (8:24/mile pace) during that race, just behind another Mark (see below). The 4x Best Ranger competitor also finished 4th at 2018 World’s Toughest Mudder with 85 miles. Between his military background and ultra-endurance performances, Mark can suffer with the best in the sport.

Mark has steadily improved at major races over the past two seasons, improving from 23rd to 11th at West Virginia last year. After closing out 2019 with a 15th place finish at Tahoe, Mark started the 2020 season strong with a 7th place finish at Jacksonville. Now that he has a full US National Series of experience, expect Mark to continue to gain on the lead pack with consistent top-5-10 finishes at major races next season.

Mark Batres (@mgbracing)

Everyone has known about Mark Batres for years. He’s the super-talented runner who has the potential to win every major race, but he hasn’t been able to put it all together for a whole season. Next year will finally be his breakthrough year in OCR.

I honestly thought 2019 was going to be Mark’s breakthrough season. Mark finished top-9 at all 2018 US National Series races, including 3rd in Chicago and 7th at Tahoe. The 2019 season was starting off with two very flat courses in Jacksonville and Alabama. It seemed as though Mark was destined for an amazing 2019 season, but he essentially spent all of 2019 injured.

Finally healthy again to start the 2020 season, Mark narrowly missed the podium with a 5th place finish in Jacksonville. All signs pointed to a great comeback season for Mark, but then Covid-19 happened. As a result, he decided to see how far he could run in 12 hours at ORM’s first Ultra Virus race. He did ok. And by “ok,” I mean ran 85 miles and would have broken the 100-mile world record if he continued that pace after the race ended.

There aren’t too many venues in the US that consist of sandy terrain, but Mark has absolutely dominated those that do (Laughlin and Arizona). Given his quick stride and success on sandy courses, I’d argue that Mark is OCR’s best sand runner in the US, which is great news for him in Abu Dhabi. Additionally, Mark is very heat-acclimated from living in southern California, so he won’t suffer due to the heat in Abu Dhabi. Temperatures in Abu Dhabi in December often reach into the 80s, so athletes who aren’t as heat-acclimated as Mark may not perform as well. Don’t be surprised if Mark is battling for a podium spot at next year’s Spartan Race World Championship.

Mohammed Mira (@mohammedmira5359)

Before I reveal names, which OCR athlete’s running PRs do you think are most impressive?

If you picked “E”, then you chose Mohammed Mira. Here are the rest of the answers: “A” = Max King, “B” = Ryan Woods, “C” = Mark Batres, and “D” = Hobie Call.

As you can see, Mohammed Mira is one of the fastest pure runners in OCR history. All of the other names on that list have had plenty of OCR success, so there’s no reason to think Mohammed won’t follow in their footsteps. In fact, he already has, winning last year’s Spartan Middle East/North Africa (MENA) Regional Championship by over 4 minutes.

You might think to yourself, “Yeah, but he probably didn’t face as good competition as he would in the US or Europe.” That’s true in terms of depth of the field, but the top athletes who race in the Middle East are truly world-class OCR athletes. Mira beat Egor Belousov (13th at Tahoe last year), Sergei Perelygin (3 straight podiums at OCRWC 3k and the 2018 Spartan European Regional champion), and Armin Botha (14:16 5k PR and one the best obstacle racers in South Africa), among others.

Based on the research I’ve done, I’d put Mohammed Mira as one of my dark-horse podium picks for the 2021 Spartan Race WC in Abu Dhabi. Mohammed won’t need to travel 10+ hours like many of the top athletes and he’s an incredible runner on sand. Don’t be surprised if you see Mohammed Mira leading much of next year’s Spartan Race World Championship.

Nikita Kriukov (@nikita_kriukov)

What do Zuzana Kocumova, Claude Godbout, and Marco Bedard have in common? They were all Olympic or world-class cross-country skiers before switching to OCR. How good was Nikita Kriukov at skiing? Let’s take a look:

2 Olympic medals in cross-country skiing
— Gold medal at 2010 Winter Olympics (Individual Sprint)
— Silver medal at 2014 Winter Olympics (Team Sprint)

Cross-Country Skiing World Championships
— 3 gold medals (2013 Individual Sprint, 2015 Team Sprint, 2017 Team Sprint)
— 1 silver medal (2015 Team Sprint)
— 1 bronze medal (2011 Team Sprint)

The guy even has a Wikipedia page, so you know he’s legit:

Unfortunately, Nikita he may not be able to compete at OCRWC in Vermont next year. Many top Russian OCR athletes (including Sergei Perelygin) have been unable to obtain a travel visa to compete in the US. That’s why you never saw most of the top Russian athletes at Tahoe.

However, Nikita could certainly compete for the Spartan Race world title in Abu Dhabi. Realistically, Nikita would probably do better at OCRWC due to his obstacle proficiency. Seriously, watch some of his Instagram videos for proof that he’s truly an obstacle racer now, not just a good endurance athlete who can fake their way through harder obstacles.

Now for the bad news: Nikita received lifetime doping ban in 2018 after his bloodwork from the 2014 Olympics was retested. However, that ban was reversed, meaning he was later cleared of wrongdoing. What if he does well at major international OCR events? How will OCR fans deal with the fact that he potentially may have been doping throughout his athletic career? Will most assume he is guilty by association since so many other Russian Olympians cheated the system this decade? We’ll know the answer soon once Nikita Kriukov starts beating some of the best in the sport.

Kris Brown (@krisbobbrown)

Raise your hand if you think you could have won the Tahoe Ultra Beast last year by 48 minutes then come back the next day to finish 25th in the Beast at the 2019 Spartan Race World Championship? That’s what Kris Brown did last year, so unless your last name is Atkins, Killian, or Albon, you should put your hand down.

The OCR story of Kris Brown is a unique one. After winning the 2010 Malibu Sprint, Kris finished 2nd at the 2012 Sacramento Beast between Hobie Call and Hunter McIntyre (whose shoe fell off during the race). He then disappeared from obstacle racing for 6 years before winning the 2018 SoCal Beast by 12 minutes. And by “disappeared,” I mean he became a professional trail runner who finished top-10 at the prestigious Western States 100 [Miler].

Competition was much deeper in after Kris returned to OCR in 2019 compared to what he faced in the early years, so he didn’t experience the same immediate success. After finishing 12th-19th at three US National Series events and 25th at Tahoe, Kris pulled off a 10th-place finish at the Trifecta WC in Greece. Now that he has had a year of improving his obstacle proficiency and carries, expect big things from Kris Brown in 2021 if he takes OCR seriously next year.

Peter Mlynar

The second former Olympic cross-country skier on my watch list, Peter Mlynar can climb with the best athletes in OCR. After sitting in the top-10 throughout the first hour of the 2018 Spartan World Championship, Peter dropped to 25th due to obstacle failures. However, Peter has podiumed in 12 of his 14 career Spartan Races. Last year was his first full season as an OCR athlete, so Peter will surely continue to improve due to the experience he gained last year.
