"CRASS. WET. FUN." Fighting in and with the water at the 3rd CityStrongWoMan.

The next and only " Baden CityStrongWoMan" in Switzerland starts on Sunday, August 18, 2024! After successful events, Baden's running specialist, griedersport AG, is now taking the next step to establish the Baden CityStrongWoMan series with well-known sponsors, a professionalized concept and a course and obstacle management that brings a lot of water into play. The "Strong Kids Run" celebrates its second edition: Children between the ages of 4 and 14 will tackle a small course of around 0.8 kilometers in the "Weite Gasse" at 10.15 a.m. and show the "big ones" how it's done before the first starting shot for the main field is fired at 12 noon.

The obstacle course in the two starting categories of 5 kilometers with one lap and 10 kilometers with two laps is once again the only race of its kind in Switzerland. It sets a special accent: in addition to the typical Strongman obstacles and the stairs and mountain climbs of the old town, which are feared by the runners, water plays a special role - in keeping with the natural surroundings and the historical tradition in Baden!

The route - attractive and proven tough: Oberstadtstrasse - Hochbrücke in the direction of Wettingen - Aue sports facility - Terrassenbad Baden - Stauwehr - Alti Badi Pontonierverein - Kronengasse - stairs up to Rathausgasse - Kirchenplatz - Kirchweg - Cordulaplatz - mittlere Gasse - stairs up to the Stein ruins - Schlossbergweg - Zürcherstrasse - Oberstadtstrasse - and then to the finish or turning point with distances of 5 km or 2 x 5 km.

The obstacles will be challenging: natural chicanes such as embankments, stairs, ramps, watercourses and of course the man-made obstacles. Highlights will include the slide in the Terrassenbad and the crossing of the old bathing area in the Limmat, but the Axpo AG mega-container, modeled on a reservoir, will also demand everything from the athletes. Climbing skills are required at the Bouba Bolder Center, and the difficulties at the Eglin AG obstacle could well put men and women "under power".


Inspiring the next generation: the first "Strong Kids Run".

The feedback from previous events has shown that children would also like to take part in the obstacle runs under extreme conditions. "We were happy to accommodate this wish and are therefore launching the next 'Strong Kids Run' together with our main sponsor Axpo," says Urs Grieder, owner and managing director of the store of the same name on Mellingerstrasse, explaining why it was clear to him: "The whole event is a huge celebration and so we are delighted to be able to inspire the next generation for this wonderful obstacle course."

The children aged between 4 and 14 will tackle a small course of around 0.8 kilometers in the "Weite Gasse" at 10.15 a.m. and show the "grown-ups" how it's done before the first starting shot for the main field is fired at 12 noon. Each child receives a valuable finisher medal as a souvenir. The first three girls and boys in each category receive trophies just like the "big ones". There is no timekeeping, so all children after 3rd place are great finishers.

Starting places are limited. A maximum of 50 children can start per category.
