The beat the city competitions are urban obstacle courses for men and women who are looking for a special sporting challenge. The runs take place directly in the center of Linz, Innsbruck and Graz. Thanks to the at least 20 natural and artificial obstacles on the at least 10 km long routes through the city center, variety is guaranteed. Sports, fun and the city - precisely these factors make the beat the city competitions a tough challenge. It's not just endurance that counts here, but also strength, skill, mobility and cleverness.

Of course, there are also separate competitions for the youngest among you. For kids and young people between the ages of 8 and 15 there are Junior Athlons in each city. The juniors have to overcome about 2 obstacles over a distance of about 10 km.

Together, the city is conquerable for everyone.

The 5+ km distances are routes in Linz, Innsbruck and Graz that start and finish together with the 10+ km route. The distances vary from city to city between five and six kilometers. There are at least 10 obstacles to overcome here. Due to the shortened distance, the 5+ km can be managed by everyone.

You can find more information about the new 5+ km distance here.

Unfortunately, it is no longer possible to register for the other distance once you have registered. We ask for your understanding.

The Junior Athlon competitions are obstacle courses for children and young people between the ages of 8 and 15, who compete against each other in three age groups (8-10 years, 11-13 years, 14-15 years). The starts are every 4 minutes. The route is about 2 km long and at least 10 obstacles have to be overcome as quickly as possible.

With the help of friends or siblings, the junior competition is manageable for all kids. :)
