In this obstacle run, you choose your own challenge for 5, 10, 15 or 21 km.

The challenges include ditches, climbing nets, timber walls and barbwire obstacles, as well as lots of mud and water. Looking forward to it yet?
Don’t worry if you don’t have much experience, as you’ll be receiving apparel, shoe and nutritional advice. A variety of training sessions and clinics will also be offered on site, and there is a special training app with schedules. Want to explore your surroundings before or after the YU MAN RACE? No problem! There are several accommodations on the edge of the nature reserve. You can build your own tent camp or rent a luxury safari tent, for instance, but cottages, hotels and B&B are among the options as well. Pick a place to stay and explore the area!
Sallandse Heuvelrug en Twents Reggedal National Park
The Sallandse Heuvelrug is the biggest single moor in Northwest Europe and boasts twenty-six ‘mountains’. With its surprising altitude variation, this makes for somewhat ‘un-Dutch’ landscapes with unforgettably beautiful views. (Pine) forests, heathlands, estates, ponds and agricultural fields nestle comfortably side by side. In addition to its beautiful landscapes, this National Park is known as the best outdoor sports area in the Netherlands.
