How it works

1.) Register for the IOQ (Individual Online Qualifier) as an individual from anywhere in the world.

2.) Complete 6 workouts over the course of 2 weeks (3 workouts per week)

3.) Following the IOQ, create your coed team of 4 or your same sex team of 2. Your team will then be ranked based upon its combined IOQ scores.

4.) Wait and see where your team ranks on the global leaderboard and which division you might qualify for.

The ioq

The BIG Open IOQ will consist of 6 workouts over the course of 14 days, 3 workouts per week on a weekly blind leaderboard. We'll drop 3 workouts the start of each week and open of the previous weeks overall standings on the leaderboard.
