In this typical Dutch sport you'll use strength, balance and climbing techniques to take the several obstacles. In a way it looks like the obstacle course like strong viking, but now every thing is build from nature. Check our photo's to get an idea or just try!!
This race you will compete in as a team. You can choose for a long (15 k ) or short (7 k) distance. During the race you have to go over obstacles, cross water, solve riddles etc. to find the right track. From us you get some kind of treasure map with which you have to navigate. You have to work together with your kid to succeed! The run ends on the survival coart where you need to bring you training in practice.
