What you’re up against: Arlberger Wadlbeisser, 24 or 15 obstacles that are going to take you to your limits. Click your way through our sweat-inducing list here.
Welcome to the Arlberger Wadlbeisser The start begins in a darkened room below the moderator’s stage. Music charges the atmosphere. The spectators go wild. You’re still feeling strong, but not for much longer: The first obstacle must be climbed before the starting shot is fired. Off we go!
Never-ending ups and downs: which you will experience at first hand in the hay barn (beware, it’s prickly!). In order to surmount this obstacle, you’ll need to scramble over all the bales of straw and a container. After every low, you will be confronted by yet another high. Guaranteed!
Steep Icefall Slope
As steep as the icefall slope at the Kandahar race: you will need oodles of momentum to climb our quarter pipe. It’s a good thing that a DJ and commentator are on hand to whip up the atmosphere. Maybe one or the other teammate will reach out with his or her sweaty hand and help pull you up.
You have a clear advantage as a team player here, because it is much easier to climb these wooden walls in pairs. Oh no, you left your “best buddy” at home, so you will have to try and tackle this with a run-up and brute strength. But don’t halloo till you’re out of the wood, because a second wall is waiting namely after the first.
