Qualifying format Obstacles must have a clearly marked start and finish for each obstacle at each qualifying competition as well as finals. All TNL competitions will follow the age groups listed above in order to gain placement points. UNAA and NNL have different age group formats which is why athletes can only gain 1 participation point at those versus placement points.
