NOTE! We are sad to announce that this event has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Due to strict regulations enforced by local authorities, we will not be able to host any physical events in 2020. We are very sorry for this outcome. Please read our full announcement via the link below.

Good to know

About Toughest Family

Concept in brief
What does the race involve?

The race is about 2 km and includes about 20 obstacles. Our standard obstacles are arranged to be fun and challenging for children and adults.

Who can run Toughest Family?

Toughest Family is a great activity where children and adults can run and challenge themselves together. Minimum age is 5 years (based on birth year). All children must be accompanied by at least one adult (18+ years). Note that adults take full responsibility for the underage participants in their group. Although all underage participants must have necessary permission from their parents/legal guardians, it is not required for the parents to run as long as their child is accompanied by another adult.

With that said, children are not mandatory for running our Family races. Many adults choose this format as a lighter and less challenging alternative to our main race.

Do I need to know how to swim?

No, swimming is not a requirement. Although water obstacles exist, these are optional.

Is it safe?

We always put safety first and the injury rate at our events is relatively low. Medical staff is present at the event area, on the course and by our water obstacles. It is important that all adults assess each obstacle and help children in their group to complete the obstacles safely.

Are there any physical requirements?

No, our courses are designed so that anyone, regardless of their physical level, can complete them on their own terms. Complete the obstacle by yourself or do it together with your team mates, it is all up to you. Many of our obstacles have alternative lanes where you can choose the difficulty level.

Do I need to complete all obstacles?

No. All obstacles are optional and you decide if you wish to make an attempt or not. If you don’t make it, go back and try again or simply continue to the next obstacle.

Practical information

What is done to limit infection spread?

Ensuring that our events can be arranged in a safe and responsible manner is a top priority for us. For the 2021 season we will make adjustments to the event area, create smaller starting groups and extend the time between each start if needed. We are in close communication with authorities to ensure that the event complies with current regulations. Participants should keep up to date and respect current recommendations from local authorities.

Where can I find my starting number?

Your preliminary starting number is found in the confirmation E-mail, received upon registration. Your final starting number will be notified via E-mail about 4-5 days prior to the event and will be published on this page.

When will I start?

Your starting group and starting time will be notified simultaneously as your starting number (see above).

Where can I collect my starting envelope?

Your starting envelope is available for pick up at the event area from 10:00. Please collect your starting envelope at least 30-60 minutes before your starting time.

Important: Remember to bring your registration ID, starting number and a valid identification card.

When will the event start?

The event starts around 11:00 and the last start is about 16:00.

Water stations

Keeping hydrated is important when participating in a race. Throughout the course, you will find several water stations where you can rehydrate. Water will also be available at the finish line.
