When you complete a Toughest race, you will encounter a wide range of different terrains. Grass, sand, gravel, clay and water are some of the elements you will face during the 8 km long course. Every event and city is unique and we do our best to adapt the course to take full advantage of the surroundings.
Our obstacle course races will on average contain about 40 obstacles of different sizes and difficulty levels. It is important for us to create courses which everyone, regardless of fitness level, can complete. You can therefore choose between different options on many obstacles – «Fast Lane» for those wanting an extra challenge or «Penalty Lane» for those whom wish to pass.
Safety is a top priority for us. Since obstacle course races may induce more risks compared to more traditional sports events, we take extra precautions to ensure that our participants can complete the race as safely as possible. Medical staff is always present during our events.
On Toughest events, it is important for both participants and spectators to have fun. To help you get in the mood, we have placed speakers at the start and end zone.
When you have completed our obstacle course race, you deserve a special memento for this achievement. All participants will receive their very own Toughest medal to hang around their necks.
A picture can say more than a 1000 words. By the end zone we have placed a photographer to capture your finish. Show us your best victory pose and freeze the moment! The picture will be publshed on our Facebook page.
Fast Lanes / PENALTY ROUNDS
It goes without saying that everyone, regardless of fitness level and ambition, should be able to complete the race. On many obstacles, you will therefore be able to choose from several options. Normal lane – for those wanting to complete the regular obstacle. Fast lane – for those wanting an extra challenge and gain some time. Penalty round – for those wanting to pass and complete a more simple challenge instead.
