The second annual Luxembourgish StrongmanRun today counted some very royal runners among its 2231 participants: No other than Prince Louis and Princess Tessy took part in the long distance obstale race featuring quite a bit of mud in Differdange. Prince Gabriel and Prince Noah were among the spectators of the race to cheer on their parents.

According to advance information, the track was about 22 kilometres (two rounds with 11 kilometres) long and had about 15 obstacles per lap. It featured dexterity, climbing, jumping and several swimming obstacles, in addition speed was also necessary to manage the track. The route also included gravel pits, forest, as well as uneven ground with potential hidden roots, wires, reinforcing steel, construction debris or stones which surface due to earth erosion, maceration or running over.
