THX for this great name!!!

You think it’s the last obstacle? Nope.

This year you have to overcome a total of 17 obstacles. The cool thing is, you have to do it all twice. But this cannot shock a real StrongmanRunner.

Let’s get back to our second Brooks obstacle with the number 15, because we urgently need a name for it and still need your help. So come up with your thoughts and ideas.

This is how it works:
Send us proposals until 13th of April via email to info@strongmanrun.de Subject: Obstacle 15 and with a little luck , you will soon have a new pair of Brooks Cascadia !


obstacle 15

In front of you lies a black sea of ​​tires. To be precise, there are 14,000 car tires and believe us, there is more pleasant things to do than as to run through. There is no chance to run fast forward anyway, because each meter is a fight over the shaky surface. Be careful with your ankles, because twisting is happening quickly. And that doesn’t make it easier to run on.
Don’t cry – it’s just a bit of rubber!

Hard Facts
+++ 14,000 car tires
+++ Length : 70 m
+++ Width: about 18 m

Obstacle 14 – BOXENSHOCK

Obstacle 14
After all of this crawling and swimming it is now time to put your martial art skills and your agility to the test: There are 56 haning punchbags infront of you, which are of course going to start swining while you are crossing obstacle 14 with its area of ​​300sq m. So try to be as careful as possible, otherwise you will be covered with bruises. To top it off, you will also have to deal with some power threads from above, whose hissing sound is the least of your worries. So you guys – fight your way through this obstacle!
