What distance is the race?

Who can run Toughest Family?
5-13 year olds together with one or more adults over 18 years. There has to be at least one adult and one child in every registration.
Toughest Family is a race for children and adults who want to run together. Therefore is the recommended age adults and children between 5-13 y/o. It’s the year you are born that counts, 5 y/o. If there are older siblings who want to participate they are welcome to join. Younger siblings have to wait, because of safety reasons.
Do I need to know how to swim?
No – not necessary. There will be water obstacles, but these are voluntary. If you choose not to do these obstacles, there is another way.
Is it safe?
We always put safety first and the numbers of injuries are relatively low, almost in comparison with a playground. To get around an obstacle course involves, by definition, different physical efforts. Having said that, scrapes and sprains can occur just like on a playground. There will be medical personnel in the event area, on the course and in the water. It is important that the guardian / responsible adult helps children to assess the obstacles and to decide which once to complete together.
What level is it?
Your level! If you can’t do it by yourself, you can do it together with your teammates. Our courses are designed so that everyone can make it. A lot of obstacles have alternative ways that are easier, therefore it is up to you to set the bar depending on your conditions.
What happens if I can’t complete an obstacle?
You can try it again or keep running and make the next obstacle.
If I am a child, do I need to run with my parent?
No, you can run with whatever adult you choose.
If I am an adult, do I need to run with my child?
No, you can run with whatever child you choose.
