We believe that S-Race will find its firm place in the calendar of sporting events in the Czech Republic," says race director Pavel Knára. "Obstacle races have experienced a huge boom in recent years and I am not surprised. We have prepared a six-kilometre course with 20 obstacles for the participants - and the best will complete it twice. And for this year, I can promise it won't be easy. We've prepared handstand and climbing obstacles, load carrying, stream crawling, a fireman's wall, archery, and the competitors will also replenish their protein, as the challenge at one of the stations will be to eat a worm."
