Strongmanrun News

Run through vineyards and across natural rivers and dams in South Africa!

The Fisherman’s Friend StrongmanRun Series 2018 is about to finish! For this year’s last run, we have something very special to present: South Africa!

On October 13th you have the chance to experience the toughest 21km race and the most fun 8km or 15km in Paarl. The track winds its way through beautiful vineyards and across natural rivers and dams. It is a stunning and yet challenging surrounding you shouldn’t miss! And what you shouldn’t miss as well is the longest mud slide of all our runs – enjoyment at its best! Besides the actual run there will be a huge side program for old and young. So even if you are just a spectator you will have a lovely day.

Once the run is over, take some time to make the most of your trip. South Africa has everything your heart desires! Great food, lovely wine, stunning nature and friendly people. You can do shark diving, paragliding, skydiving, go on a safari, have a wine tour, climb up the second biggest solit granit rock in the world or just let you soul dangle at the beach. What ever you desire to do: name it and South Africa has it! It is the world in one small country and absolutely worth a stay.

Nordic by Nature

Mark September 22nd in your calendar, because Kristiansand in Norway presents 10km of pure fun. This run is made for all of those who want to experience something new and cool. You can even choose whether you prefer time tracking or not. The whole run is created as a big social event and puts a very strong focus on the team character. How well you can cooperate will definitely be part of the test!


Enjoy gigantic obstacles and unique parcours through beautiful countryside in Hellendoorn

On September 2nd Hellendoorn invites you to grow out of yourselves!
This StrongmanRun, taking place in the heart of the Netherlands, is famous for its tough and gigantic obstacles, without lacking in fun for even a minute. Within 3 distances you can challenge yourself true to the motto “Start as a runner and finish as a Strongman”. You can choose between a distance of 7km, STRONG-12 and THE ORIGINAL, leading you trough beautiful countryside.


Clocklike precision, golden panoramas & emotions sweet as chocolate

On June 2nd, FFSMR Summer Edition in Engelberg, Switzerland invites you to challenge yourself and to get your very own HERO MOMENT. After a fulminant start in this year’s StrongmanRun season with Engelbergs Winder Edition in January, you now have the chance to experience the track with sunny and warm weather! As Switzerland is famous for their awesome mountain terrain, the FFSMR will of course wind its way through some of them. In a group of about 8000 people you can either participate in The Original StongmanRun Distance (18km) or, for the crazy ones among you, in the especially setup Ultra Distance. The Ultra Distance shows up with 40km and is an honour for 40 years of Fisherman’s Friend in Switzerland!


Rovereto’s StrongmanRun – the only FFSMR that is actually taking place in a city center

Located between Trento and Verona, the City of Peace, of festivals and museums 
Rovereto will amaze you with its international museums. Stroll through art, history and science and discover the Venetian feel of the old town center. Set amid hills and vineyards, Rovereto is in the center of Valle dell’Adige, along the main road linking Trento and Verona. We advise you to explore the city on foot, the streets of the city center are like a journey through different time periods.
