Entry to the World Rescue Challenge 2023

The WRC 2023 will be hosted by the Asociacion Profesional de Rescate en Accidentes de Trafico, in Lanzerote, Spain in the week commencing 16 October 2023.  Details are yet to be published.

Each year the World Rescue Organisation invites UKRO to nominate teams for the event.  To ensure fairness and consistency and to reward merit UKRO has a policy for which UK teams will be invited to take part.

Our policy is to offer the top 3 teams in Extrication and Trauma at the previous year’s UKRO Challenge an opportunity to have a subsidised place at the following WRC.  The subsidy comprises the repayment of the entry fee only following attendance at the WRC. 

Should one of the top 3 teams not be able to attend or additional places become available then slots are offered to UK teams in the rank order in which they finished at the previous year’s Challenge.  These places are offered without any financial support from UKRO. 

Teams should not approach the WRO seeking entry to the WRC.

If teams have any queries in respect of this matter please email Guy Goodman, Trustee/Director of Corporate Services at
