How do I make sure to be put in the same starting group as my friends?
– If you are registered as a team you will automatically be put in the same group. If you are less than four persons (minimum for a team) still write a team name if you want to start together. Note that the system is case sensitive, and the same spelling is a must for this to be applied.
Can I choose start time?
No. You cannot select the start time when you sign up for Toughest. We apply the principle: the earlier you register, the earlier you start. A lower start number may therefore indicate an earlier start time.
Can we register a company and pay by invoice
Yes. As a company, or a larger group, you have the opportunity to sign up and pay by invoice.

Is there changing rooms and somewhere to leave bags?
Bag drop: We always have staffed area for baggage drop. With every starting envelope there comes a luggage tag to be put around your bag. Note that we cannot be held responsible for items lost and also note that the bag drop could be roofless (in case of bad weather make sure to put protection round the bag such as a plastic cover)
Changing rooms: We have changing areas for men/women but note that these are roofless and without additional heating. Hence make sure to bring dry clothes and change as quick as possible after your race to stay dry and avoid getting cold.
Are there any electrical obstacles on the track?
– No. Toughest doesn’t think there is any point of having obstacles created to distribute physical pain through electric shocks. You will feel pain and fatigue anyway. Naturally. We promise.
What does it take to manage Toughest?
– 8 km in terrain with over 40 obstacles …. of course, that’s not a walk in the park. However, we believe that attitude and mental strength is more important than physical peak performance. You cannot place yourself in the top tier unless you are absolutely in top shape both in terms of strength, speed and endurance. However, this is mainly a personal challenge and you can get around the track on your own terms. When you finish it, you will surely be among the toughest you know.
Do you have to pass all the obstacles? (Regular start groups)
No, the obstacles are a part of the race, but you are welcome to help each other in order to get past them. If you fail, you can also choose the penalty run instead. This consists of 150-200 meters of running.
The most important thing is that you always keep yourself inside the marked track.
Note that if you are Elite or Qualifier you must complete all obstacles
Do you have to be able to swim in order to participate?
Yes- There might be shorter distances of swimming (max 20 m) so you should be able to swim. However there might be ways around this on some courses so if you are insecure please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get a specific answer for the race you intend to sign up for!
For Family you don’t need to be able to swim as you always can walk pass these obstacles. All children are offered life vests for the water obstacles
What is a penalty run?
If you for some reason cannot complete an obstacle you can choose to do the penalty instead. This consists of a 150-200 meter run.
Once you completed the penalty you can continue on the course
What is a fast lane?
On some of our major obstacles we offer a more difficult option, called fast lane. These obstacles are harder than the easy lane but if you are strong and have good technique you can save some time as you don’t need to complete the follow obstacle
What is a follow obstacle?
If you do the easy lane toy need to complete a follow obstacle as net pyramids or crawling and over/under. Everybody can do these obstacles but takes a long time. If you complete the fast lane you can skip the follow obstacle
What is a Family lane
On the Family race we have made all our major obstacles easier for the kids.There is one or two lanes for kids and some more lanes for the parents/adults
Can I wear spike/metal studded shoes?
No, we do not allow the use of metal studded shoes as these will ruin or obstacles and may harm other participants
Do I need to wear gloves?
It’s very individual if you need gloves or not. If you are not used to hanging much, we can recommend that you use gloves as these protect your skin and keep your hands warm for better grip. We sell our Grip gloves in our shop at the event area or in our web/shop
