The courses will test beginners and top athletes – Our year round events offer smaller crowds for any race and eliminate the waiting time to tackle any obstacle. All runners are free to set their own pace. Everybody can try any obstacle more than once during the race. Our course is spectator friendly with almost half of the obstacles within view.
