ATHLETE JUDGE PROGRAM
DEKA is truly a fitness movement we all created together. To ensure a professionally judged racing experience for all athletes at the 2023 DEKA World Championships, this year we are launching a plan that will have each athlete judging one athlete before or after they compete in DEKA STRONG and DEKA MILE and provide 60 min of their time judging in a zone before or after they compete in DEKA FIT.
How it works:
DEKA FIT – within 1 hour of finishing your race (or anytime before your race), make your way to the athlete judge check-in area at Zone 1 to begin your 60 minute volunteer judging time.
DEKA STRONG & DEKA MILE – within 1 hour of finishing your race (or anytime before your race), head over to the athlete judge check-in area at Zone 1 to make yourself available to judge one athlete.
World Championships qualified athletes know the DEKA Zone Standards very well and make great judges. This support will play a key role in helping us all ensure the 2023 World Championships (and the years to follow) run smoothly and provide a great experience for all.
We can’t thank you enough for your support as we continue our mission of creating an epic opportunity for ALL levels to celebrate fitness together.

“DEKA FIT was an amazing experience for me. The training leading up to the event with my gym community and the extra support of the DEKA staff helped me accomplish my goals. After it was all said and done, I really do feel proud of myself and can’t wait for the next one!”
“I love how DEKA truly tests my physical AND mental fitness, all while putting me in a competitive atmosphere. The energy of the other athletes pushing themselves helps motivate you to give it everything you’ve got! Whether you’re beginner, intermediate, or advanced- it’s you VS. you out there… nothing like DEKA!”
