Event Specific Questions:

What makes your event Special?

"According to our ‘Pitizens’, The Sand Pit is the most organized obstacle run to date. Despite the positive feedback, we still want to set the bar higher and have reached out directly to our ‘Pitizens’ to get their thoughts on where and how we can do more. We will always innovate and always engage with our ‘Pitizens’ throughout the process. We want our ‘Pitizens’ to walk away with the best experience and with a renewed commitment to take on their own daily challenges."

What does the event offer that no other event does?

"Beyond our events, we are building a community of ‘Pitizens’. ‘Pitizens’ are more than people who have taken part in The Sand Pit. A ‘Pitizen’ is someone who has taken the decision to treat obstacles in their daily lives as solvable challenges. They also realise that cooperating with their fellow man, versus competing with them, yields more positive outcomes in life. Our ‘Pitizen’ community is rapidly expanding and we continue to engage with them to help them champion their own goals."

How many events will there be yearly?

"2 events per city, per year."

How many events have been held in the past?

"1 event held in the past."

What is the expected size of the event?

"2,000 Participants +."
