Attention runners. Have you ever heard of Hyrox? Because now is the time to try out the trend. Hyrox is a trend sport that combines functional training with running. A competition consists of eight different running intervals over a distance of one kilometer each. Between the running intervals, participants complete eight different fitness exercises, such as 1,000 meters on a ski ergometer, which simulates the movements of cross-country skiing, or 1,000 meters on a rowing machine. 

Even for experienced runners, Hyrox is considered an athletic challenge. During the competition, participants are challenged both physically and mentally. You have to learn how to manage your strength and push yourself beyond your limits.

Hyrox is a sport for everyone, even if it doesn't look like it at first. But the atmosphere at the races is fantastic. And it makes you want to sign up for the next event. The spectators push you so hard that everyone reaches the finish line. It doesn't matter whether the time is less than an hour or three hours - everyone goes home a winner. Fancy a new challenge?
