About Brutus Run

On January 29th 2023, the adventure is back to unite the toughest runners in one brutal competition. We will provide a map of the area to all teams and will give them missions to complete in a specified control time. Each mission must be completed on a specific point of the map and the teams have to find that point. You can choose between 2 difficulties - Warrior (3 missions) or General (5 missions). The team spots are limited - only 50 teams for Warrior and 20 for General will be allowed to participate. What is Brutus Run? In short...a brutal adventure with extreme toughness. Brutus Run is only for winners, for strong people with a strong spirit. This is not a carnival running with a little mud and dummy gymnastics. This is a real challenge that requires physical fitness and will to succeed. The obstacles will reduce the number of finishers to a minimum. Brutus Run includes exhausting winter running with map orienteering; a muscle-gripping carrying of weights along, tiring intensive chopping...

Rules and control times

  • The places for Brutus Run General are limited to a maximum of 20 teams of 2 people each.
  • The places for Brutus Run Warrior are limited to a maximum of 50 teams of 2 people each.
  • Only teams of two people are allowed for participation in Brutus Run General (5 missions) and Brutus Run Warrior (3 missions).
  • Throughout the entire race the members of the team will be tied to each other with a five-meter long rope. Untying the knot or removing the rope, even for a short period of time, will result in disqualification.

Control times and rules for completing the tasks:

There will be cut off times. Warrior - 7 hours, General - 10 hours


  • Orienteering
    There is no route. You will have several points on a detailed map and you would have to find those in the woods. A compass is mandatory.
  • Digging soil and collecting it in bags
    Every woman in a team must fill in 15 kg of soil in a bag and every man 22 kg. They have to carry the bags to the weighting station which is 1 kilometer away. For every kilogram less than the required there will be a 5 minute time penalty.
  • Wood chopping
    - 1 meter Acacia log, laid on the ground, with a larger diameter for men and less for teams with women. It is not necessarily to cut right through the middle - a tolerance of up to 70:30 is allowed. A successfully cut log is considered a completely parted log in the area of chopping, i.e. getting two (or more) pieces of wood. A failed cutting or quitting will lead to 30 minutes time penalty.

    Possible injuries from splinters during chopping.

  • Tasks for exercising the brain
    At a point on the route, each team will get five logical tasks on a piece of paper. It is necessary to solve the tasks, while running, and then deliver them to the next point - about 3 km away. Each unsolved problem will lead to 2 minutes and half penalty time, and if all tasks are wrong or unresolved - the total penalty time will be 17 minutes. Tasks can be solved by both teammates, discussed etc. - the important thing is for the team to finally reach a decision and a correct answer.
  • Rock climbing
    Only for Brutus Run General! At a specific point of the route the teams will have to climb a vertical rock. There will be volunteers which will guide the participants. A failure to pass the challenge will result 30 minutes of penalty time.
  • Surprise?
    There will be an additional, quite tough hurdle, which will be announced just before it's about to be done. : )

To the finish time of each team will be added, and resp. subtracted, bonus or penalty time, obtained during the performance of the tasks. Thus their final time will be formed.

  • а cellphone (which must be turned off during the race, otherwise you will be disqualified)
  • а running backpack
  • а compass
  • water - a minimum of 1 liters/person
  • food - an equivalent of 1000 kcal/person

    This is not just a race … This is an incredible emotion which is definitely worth it. Only those who have participated in iRun’s trail runs know the thrill of running through the woods with another 100-150 people and every one of them is super upbeat and charged.
