What are the benefits of running as a team?
The team is always stronger! Moreover, the team receives an entry fee discount. This may be for example a great opportunity to awaken the team spirit in your company. Urban Challenge can be a great team-building event.
Is the race timed?
Yes, you will have an electronic chip, which will track your time. The winner will become “the king of URBAN CHALLENGE”. Though everyone who challenges him or herself is the winner!
How the time of the team will be counted?
Times of three fastest members of the team will be summed up. The total time will be then compared to times of the other teams.
Are there different categories?
We want to play fair, so we created three different categories: individual man, individual woman and a team category. No individual runner may be also registered as a team member and only those registered in the “individual” category may compete in the individual category. It is impossible to win as an “individual” and run for a team at the same time.
Is the race safe?
All of the obstacles as well as the course are safe. If you follow instructions and use common sense you won’t get hurt. Each participant shall however submit a signed “revers” form before the race, accepting conditions of the race and acknowledging potential risks of participating in the race.
What is "waiver"?
Waiver is a declaration of legal liability for potential health hazards during the race. Participation in the race is not allowed without this document signed.
Is there any age limit?
Yes. You have to be at least 15 years old. In case the racer is under 18 years of age, written consent of a legal guardian is needed.
