FAQ’s

HOW OLD MUST I BE TO COMPETE?

The minimum age is 16 years. If you are a minor (16 and 17), you must be accompanied by your parents or guardian who must sign a liability release document.


WHY IS XPLOR BRAVEST RACE ELEMENTS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER RACES?

Because it is an extraordinary race; throughout 5 km you will come across 30 obstacles and Elementals who will try to steal your courage during the challenge.

Because it is a course in a natural setting that includes jungle, caves, with and without water, jumps, mud and much more.

Because in spite of being a challenge, it is an event you will enjoy and share in the experience with others, as well as help your teammates to overcome and face up to the Elementals.


IS THERE A MEETING ONE DAY BEFORE?

No, you will be given your competitor's kit on race day and you will have to be ready to overcome the course, obstacles and the elements.


AT WHAT TIME DO I HAVE TO ARRIVE?

You have to arrive at least 2 hours before your wave time. Come early, you'll have a great time!


WHAT ARE THE STARTING GROUPS OR WAVES?

They are groups of competitors that leave every 30 minutes, and you can only participate in the group in which you registered.

They begin at 8:00 h and end at 15:00 h, with a break from 11:00 to 11:30 h.


CAN I TAKE FOOD AND DRINKS TO THE EVENT?

It is an event that lasts the entire day of the race, where you can have fun with your friends, family and strange creatures, and where there will also be music, DJs, food, beer, contests and surprises.


HOW CAN I BE ONE OF THE BRAVEST?

You will have to overcome difficult obstacles to win flags, which you can also get from the rival Elementals who you’ll have to chase to acquire them. You’ll have a belt according to the element you have chosen to place your flags. Only the Brave Runners that can get flags from the four elements, no matter what their allied element is, can be considered The Bravest.


I TRAINED MY PET TO HELP ME OVERCOME THE OBSTACLES, CAN THEY RUN WITH ME?

No. Only registered human competitors can take part in the event. We love animals, but please don't bring your pets to the race because they will be eaten by the Elementals or by the jaguars in the jungle.


WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON’T GET ANY BRAVE FLAGS?

Nothing, stay in the race; there are still lots of obstacles to overcome. Enjoy yourself and use it as motivation for the next Xplor Bravest Race. You will receive your reward for your effort when you arrive at the finish line.


CAN I TAKE FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO THE BRAVEST PARTY?

Yes, of course. There will be music, food, beer and lots of surprises and you will be able to show off your medal for being one of The Bravest.


QUESTIONS ABOUT THE RACE

WILL THERE BE OBSTACLES INVOLVING SWIMMING?

Each race is different, but if there are swimming zones and you don't swim very well, you will be able to use life jackets, ropes, inner tubes, etc.


CAN I SKIP AN OBSTACLE?

If you have a physical handicap or injury, you will have to let the judge know at each obstacle. If you give up and don't overcome an obstacle, you won’t win the corresponding Brave Flag. You have to have your strategy ready!


WHAT CLOTHES SHOULD I WEAR FOR THE RACE?

Wear comfortable sports clothes, cross training tennie shoes and preferably a creative costume to help you overcome the obstacles. Remember you might have to crawl through mud, water and much more.


WHAT IS A NATURAL OBSTACLE AND WHAT IS A CREATED OBSTACLE?

Natural obstacles, as the name suggests, are those that use natural objects to challenge you, and the created ones are built by us. Are you ready?


CAN I RUN IN A TEAM?

Of course! It's always more fun in a team, and you can plan your strategy and have extra help at the obstacles, but if you are BRAVE enough to do it alone, we will be waiting for you.


CAN THE TEAMS BE MIXED?

Of course! The more women the merrier! This is a challenge for anyone who wants to compete. Teams don't have a specific number of members and are for both men and women.


QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PERSECUTORS

WHAT IS AN ELEMENTAL?

They are beings created by the elements with the sole purpose of hindering your advancement and preventing you from reaching the goal. You will also be able to chase them at certain moments of the race to take their Bravest Flags.


WHAT ARE THE SAFETY ZONES?

They are zones free of Elementals; well, at least that’s what we think.


CAN THE ELEMENTALS HIT, EAT, BITE OR SCRATCH ME?

The Elementals have been given instructions to only make obstacles harder and to not get caught. They have been well trained and know what they have to do. But remember the same applies for you; you can't hit, touch or push an Elemental.


WILL THE ELEMENTALS TRAP ME OR ONLY CHASE ME? WHAT WILL MY ELEMENTAL ALLY DO?

If we tell you everything, it won't be any fun. Our best advice is to be ready to run, jump, dodge and use your best moves to avoid them.
