B: Team Competition:
The entry is open to teams of 4 members (maximum 2 male members). The team’s competition will be held in a different system than in the previous competition.

Each team consists of 2 relay pairs who switch each other after 1 lap, ie. all competitor must complete Distance II (see: Challenges and distances/Distance II.) In the first lap the 2 girls of the teams must start the competition. Team the members can help each other to cross the obstacles, but it is not compulsory to race side by side if they do not want to. The competition is finished when both relay of a team cross the finish line. The time of the relays will be added and the team the best added time will win the competition. One person can be a member of only one team.    

Example: One relay of team X (2 people) finishes the race in 50 minutes, while the other relay of team X (other 2 people) finishes in 55 minutes. So the final result of team X will be 50+55 minutes, so all together 105 minutes.
