The participant declares to be physically healthy and that no medical concerns exist which prevent him/her from participating in a long distance obstacle course.
It's a 5+km and a 20+ obstacles course. That's all you need to know...expect the unexpected. But please consider the following: the course is a cross country course which will lead you through woods and bushes, moats, and climbing obstacles as well as uneven ground with potential hidden roots or wires and water and/or slippery surfaces. We therefore point out that injuries may occur through falls, stumble, twists, slips etc. when overcoming the obstacles or on the course. Additional risks may be caused by falls of other participants thus jeopardizing their co-runners. Therefore, we ask you to adjust your running speed and behavior based on what you see around you, the respective obstacle and to the rush on the course.

You can only participate in the race if you have handed in your signed waiver when you pick up your racer packet. You will also receive a timing chip. It is mandatory to wear the timing chip at all times during the race, otherwise you cannot be timed. You are not allowed to pass your timing chip to another athlete, as it is linked with your bib number. If you can't complete an obstacle you will have to make 30 BURPEES to continue. However, there are obstacles that are "no fail" obstacles - you will have to do the obstacle otherwise you are disqualified. Passing an obstacle without doing it or doing 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. However, we expect that you respect the other athletes.
There are aid stations on the course and at the finish. But they are Spartan style aid stations so if you have specific needs for nutrition make sure to bring with you what you need. Carry extra hydration and fuel if you think you might be fatigued or pass out from dehydration.
