Predator RACE Alpine Master Weekend

THE sporting highlight in Neukirchen - 27. + 28. May 2023

In the Predator Race, you will have to take on an extreme obstacle course. True to the motto “Overcome all challenges and never give up”, this is a truly extraordinary sporting event. The pristine alpine terrain of the Wildkogel Arena, with its vast panorama of 3000 m peaks inside Hohe Tauern National Park, was seemingly predestined for the Predator RACE Alpine Master Weekend.

In three races, each varying in difficulty – the DRIL, BRUTAL (both on Saturday) and the MASAKR (Sunday) – you can put your competitive instincts and physical fitness to the test. You have the option of entering all races either in the “Elite” (without assistance) or “Open” (assistance permitted) division, either as an individual or a team (at least 4 people). And thanks to the JUNIOR RACE on Saturday, even our little “predators” will have an opportunity to push their limits.

Entry Fees:

Predator JUNIORfrom € 10,00700 m / 7 obstacles
Predator DRILfrom € 59,005 km + / 20 obstacles
Predator BRUTALfrom € 69,0010 km + / 25 obstacles

We have some additional information about the race for you!

  • Rules FAST and SLOW Lines:
    • The FAST line is the faster way to negotiate an obstacle. However, this option is technically more challenging or more strength-sapping.
    • The SLOW line, on the other hand, is designed more simply. It takes longer and is generally associated with lengthier running sections.
    • The HANDICAP: If you are still unable to overcome an obstacle, there is a handicap. The handicap involves an extra running stage or short, strenuous passages that have to be completed in a "Crab Walk".
  • Compulsory Obstacles:
    • Obstacles are only compulsory for ELITE runners
    • Compulsory obstacles are marked with a star on the posters at the start/finish area 
    • FAST- or SLOW line is up to you (the main thing is, you make it through) No assistance!
    • No handicap
    • Obstacles not marked with a star are not compulsory. You can negotiate them via the FAST- or SLOW line and even invoke a handicap.
  • Teams & Rebates:

    Naturally, bigger groups will receive a team rebate from us! 

    • The minimum group size is 4 people. Teams up to 14 people receive a 10 % rebate on the entry fee. If your team consists of 15 or more, your group rebate will be 15 %.
    • As a member of the ambulance services, police or fire department, you will receive a 10 % rebate, with other rebates excluded (i.e. this offer is only for individuals). If you are a member of one of the above organizations, please send us an email at [email protected]
