WHAT IS AN OBSTACLE RACE
An Obstacle Course is a sports activity that combines the athletes' race, strength, balance, resilience and courage. During a variable course of test, athletes are invited to overcome natural obstacles or built for the event (barriers, weights, balances, barriers, inclined paths, with water, etc.).
INVITATION TO EXPERIENCE OBSTACLES
The LYNXRACE organization invites you to come to Jamor from 11 AM, test the obstacles and have fun. The invitation is for those who already know the modality but, mainly, for those who do not know yet.
DIRECT TRANSMISSION ON TVI24
The LYNXRACE (Lynx Race) will be broadcast live on TVI24 between 9 AM and 12 noon on June 2nd. It will be the first time in Portugal that a Hurdle Race will be broadcast live. A vast team of professionals will show you every detail of the most emotional and exciting sporting event of the year.
COMPETITION AND FUN
LYNXRACE can be made in a competitive or leisure environment.
In competitive mode (ELITE and COMPETITIVE), there are rigid rules, obstacles must all be executed correctly or else a penalty must be met.
In the leisure mode (OPEN) there are no rules and obstacles can be overcome with help and in group and there is no obligation to be made.
