When we developed the idea of ​​the first major obstacle race in Europe more than 10 years ago, we never had dreamed off we would be so successful. We were the ones to hit the nerve of the times with creating this great obstacle and running event. And that is what we are today. Despite the steadily growing obstacle scene, the FISHERMAN’S FRIEND StrongmanRun is not only the biggest obstacle race in the world, with the biggest and most fascinating obstacles, varied and exciting tracks and great atmosphere full of fun, partnership and team spirit. It also has the highest safety standards of all obstacle runs – this is what we can promise to every single runner!

FFSMR Series Testimonial: Corentin Meyer, the “Cro-Magnon”

Our FFSMR-Community knows Corentin Meyer better as the „Cro-Magnon“ or „The Stone-Age-Man“. He has already participated in 21 StrongmanRuns in different countries, always in the same costume! Enough reasons for us to choose him as one of our FFSMR Series Testimonials.

So we asked him some questions to get to know him better…
