Good to know
About Toughest Family
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.

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. If needed, we will make adjustments to the event area, create smaller starting groups and extend the time between each start. 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.
