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 sell/transfer my ticket?
All tickets are personal and personal identification is needed to get the starting envelopes. Name changes are possible up to 7 days prior to the race. This is free of charge if tickets is purchased with “enable changes” otherwise a transfer fee of 299 SEK (app 29 EUR) is charged at the transfer. Link to transfers is found here
Is there changing rooms and somewhere to leave bags?
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 is roofless (in case of bad weather make sure to put protection round the bag such as a plastic cover)
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 can not 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?
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. Examiners are found along the track.
Do you have to be able to swim in order to participate?
– 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!
