Patrick Wyllie, of Ashaway, and James Wilcox, of Richmond, have qualified for the Hyrox World Championships in Berlin on April 4.

They qualified after finishing second at a Hyrox event in Chicago on Jan. 25.

Hyrox consists of a 1-kilometer run, which is just over a half-mile, followed by a functional workout that repeats eight times. The functional workout includes pushing and pulling a sled, broad jump, machine rowing, kettle bell carry, sandbag lunges and wall balls.

Wilcox and Wyllie are ranked eighth in the United States in the 30-39 division.

They are looking for sponsors for the trip to Germany. Contact Wyllie at
