  • Competitors must be present at the start of an event in order to compete in that event
  • Since the competition takes place in a public area, conditions during blindfolded solving will be quite noisy and this is outside of our control. Competitors who choose to compete in the blindfolded event do so at their own risk.

Time limit

If you reach the time limit during your solve, the judge will stop you and your result will be DNF (see Regulation A1a4).


The format describes how to determine the ranking of competitors based on their results. The list of allowed formats per event is described in Regulation 9b. See Regulation 9f for a description of each format.
