The qualifying OCR races are races that allow qualification to events outside the Italian scene, typically international and / or world competitions organized by other circuits. This is due to an affiliation, that has been established between the italian organizer and the event holder, according to certain criteria, so some events can boast of this feature!

- Spartan European and World Championships
- European Championships of the various European OCR federations (FIOCR for Italy), organized by the OCREC (OCR European Championship, headed by a private European company)
