DEFINITION OF MUTUAL ASSISTANCE: The term "mutual assistance" means the following situation: each competitor makes every effort to overcome all obstacles under his own power. In the event that it is obvious that he is unable to overcome an obstacle, he may, for certain obstacles (usually barriers), accept help from any other competitor who offers it selflessly. Each obstacle has rules specifying whether mutual assistance is allowed or prohibited.

WHAT IS NOT A GENERAL ASSISTANCE: In the event that a strategy of two or more runners (individuals) deliberately assisting another person over obstacles during the course of a race with the intent of speeding up his/her time on the course, such action will be classified as grounds for disqualification.

CONCEPT OF TAPPING: This means an attempt by a competitor to speed up the course of a race without any effort to overcome an obstacle. In practice, this means that the competitor runs up to the obstacle, touches it and continues on the handicap. Such action may lead to disqualification.

DEFINITION OF MAXIMUM EFFORT TO OVERCOME THE OBSTACLE: Means that the competitor begins to complete the obstacle as instructed by the obstacle operator. E.g., he/she starts to climb, jumps on the obstacle, etc., in other words, he/she makes an attempt to overcome it.
