Children aged 13 and under must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or other adult.

When to come to the Alfa Run?

Children’s starts are organised every hour at 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.
What is the difference between the Alfa Hero and Champions' Challenges?
Both courses are exactly the same, but the Champions’ Challenge is timed, all obstacles must be completed (or a penalty can be chosen) and awards are given to the first three to complete the course (in the men’s and women’s groups separately).
Do you need to know how to swim?
The course includes an obstacle where you will have to jump from a height of 3 m into water and swim. If you do not know how to swim, you will be able to bypass the obstacle. However, participants are encouraged to overcome their fears as a team of volunteers will be on hand to help.
