5 km + 20 obstacles, the duration of the race from 40 min 2 hrs – depends on the condition runner. That's all you need to know...expect the unexpected. But please consider the following: the course is a city run which will lead you through the narrow streets of the center of the city. We ask you to adjust your running speed and behavior to the visibility conditions, the respective obstacle and to the rush on the track.
You can only participate in the race if you have handed in your signed waiver when you pick up your racer packet. No bibs and timing chips for this charity event. If you can't complete an obstacle you will have to suffer 30 BURPEES. However there is obstacles that are mandatory "no fail" obstacles - you will have to overcome the obstacle otherwise your are disqualified. Passing an obstacle without overcoming it or not doing the burpees will lead to disqualification. At each obstacle and along the course we have marshals checking that every athlete is following the course and obstacles.You are not allowed to cut the course. You can overtake others anywhere unless elsewise announced on the course. Also at obstacles. However we expect that you respect the other athletes.
