FAQ

Why come to Poland for Runmageddon when I have many OCRs in my country?

Believe us or not there is no obstacle race like Runmageddon on this planet!
Luckily it's not just our opinion, here are the reasons:

  • Obstacles - you will hardly find any plain running during Runmageddon, we create obstacles which are so challenging that almost nobody can overcome them alone. Therefore Runmageddon is an amazing challenge for a team promoting cooperation!
  • Location - We always desire to kill two birds with one stone, namely we combine harsh & beautiful natural areas with reasonable distance to city center and other facilities.
  • Diversity -  we do not work by pattern. Each and every race is a totally different story. New obstacles, unique course and always pushing you behond your boundaries!
What distance? How many obstacles?

It's up to you how strong you feel:
Intro - 3k & 15+ obstacles
Recruit - 6k & 30+ obstacles
Classic - 12k & 50+ obstacles
Hardcore - 21k & 70+ obstacles
Ultra - 42k & 150+ obstacles

WHERE IS THE RUNMAGEDDON OFFICE?

That depends! Every race is located in different city - specific adress will be sent to every participant via e-mail several days before the run itself.

WHICH GROUP AM I COMPETING IN?

We'll email you this info a week prior to the event. If for some reason you don't receive it, or the email you gave us at registration is no longer in use, and you can't remember your password – our fabulous Turbovolunteers will provide you with the group number when you come to collect your starter pack. You must know what time on Sunday you are supposed to set off!

 

The group list will also be posted on our sites.

 

IMPORTANT! The time of the set-off may be a bit different from the "booked" time.

MISS, MY PAL IS IN A DIFFERENT GROUP THAN ME... WE WANT TO STICK TOGETHER!

You can migrate from one group to another EIGHT days before the day of your run. There will be no chance for migration on the day of the run, though.

ARE WE ALL GOING TO FIT IN? ARE THERE NOT GOING TO BE QUEUES AT THE OBSTACLES?

We're expecting queues at the first 2-3 obstacles. For you, it's a chance to toughen up your spirits, control your patience and protect your virtues. The crowd will scatter later on, and everyone will be following their own tempo. If you want to get the top timing – position yourself well at the Start and... run, buddy, run!!! :)

 

This initial queue is necessary for us to be able to get the desired density of the obstacles. I don't believe you'd prefer to run the first two kilometres without any obstacles, would you?

SERIOUSLY? DID YOU REALLY HAVE TO INCLUDE OBSTACLES THAT REQUIRE HELP FROM OTHERS?

Well... If you can fly, or levitate, you can easily manage to overcome the steep and slippery obstacles. However, should these two skills be missing from your skill set, you REALLY need to count on someone to give you a helping hand (or two). Do NOT be an self-centred egotist and help the person behind you. SOLIDARITY, people! SOLIDARITY!!

ARE WE ALL GOING TO SET OFF AT THE SAME TIME?

Nothing of the sort. Depending on the edition, a few groups set off every 30-60-min. Check the starting list to see which group you are in.

CAN I BRING MY FAMILY/FRIENDS?

Of course – they'll have a great show to watch. Additionally, their presence helps us with our good cause :)
The fans will enter through the right gate for the fee of  5PLN, and 100% of the proceedings will be donated to charity.

The participants will enter through the left gate for free.

WHAT'S IN THE STARTER PACK?

Starter packs are slightly different depending on the edition, and are discussed in detail with each separate event.

CAN I COLLECT MY FRIEND'S STARTER PACKAGE FOR HIM/HER?

No way, buddy. Even a note from his or her doc, his or her mum, his wife, her husband, his or her gardener or the notary's won't help. Nope. Everyone is obliged to sign a personal consent stating they are sane and can take responsibility for their decision to participate. The consent also states that they know we may want to use pictures of them or send Runmageddon promotion materials, and that they're OK about it. In short, everyone must collect their own starter pack personally (yes, your ID will be checked!).

WHAT IS RUNMAGEDDON?

RUNMAGEDDON challenges your weaknesses. The task is to conquer the course strewn with natural and artificial obstacles, which the most daring daredevils try to do in the shortest time possible. Contestants will have to climb, crawl, jump, meet the mud, water and fire... Generally speaking, it is NOT another colorful street run for the high maintenance runners jogging along equipped in the newest iPod mini and the most expensive jogging pants from the newest autumn/winter collection.

CAN I GIVE AWAY OR SELL MY TICKET TO RUN IN RUNMAGEDDON?

Fat chance. Starter packs are personalized. Remember, the sooner you buy the starter pack the cheaper it is. Unfortunately, there is always a risk that you may be unable to participate due to illness, a business trip, work commitment, etc.

WHO ORGANISES THE EVENT?

The main promoter is Runmageddon Foundation in assosiation with Extreme Events Ltd.
