Safety during Venlostormt
Because safety for all involved is our first priority during VenloStormt, we cooperate with professional partners such as Ocean, the Venlo Rescue Team, the Duukers and Thetis Diving association, the fire department and GHOR (Medical Assistance at Accidents and Disasters) to ensure the safety of participants, visitors and volunteers. Participation in VenloStormt is nonetheless at your own cost and risk. Please also refer to the General Terms and Conditions General Terms and Conditions and the Competition Regulations as accepted by all participants upon registration.

Is running an obstacle course dangerous?
Obstacle courses are no more dangerous than normal running races, football matches or any other sport. Incidents can happen anywhere, but if you come to the start well prepared and adhere to the safety rules, the risk of incidents is low. That being said, we are still talking about a substantial challenge, for which proper training is essential.

How safe are the obstacles?
All VenloStormt obstacles are built in cooperation with professional partners. Their construction is designed to withstand a large number of participants in a short period of time. The obstacles are inspected prior to the event by a constructor with the Venlo municipality. In cooperation with the fire department he will verify the sturdiness and general safety of the obstacles and ascertain that no protruding parts could pose a danger to participants. The fire department, police and other safety experts will also make the rounds of the course to ensure rigorous execution of their tasks if necessary and check that everything is in order before the start of the race. In short, the obstacles and course are safe.

What happens if I hurt myself?
Every obstacle is supervised by a first aid official and a volunteer. If you get hurt, for example a sprained ankle, you can go to them immediately. Extra emergency services like motorcycles and ambulances are on standby throughout the day. In case of bleeding, participants will be immediately removed from the race and treated by a first aid official or nurse. Participants will only be allowed to continue the race if any wounds have been bandaged and the nurse or first aid official gives the green light.

Is there a risk of catching infections in the mud or water?
Both the water and mud used are safe. VenloStormt checks the safety in cooperation with GHOR (Regional Medical Assistance at Accidents and Disasters). Some participants are more prone to infection than others, however. Because there is always a small risk of catching something if you have a small cut or wound, we advise to rinse thoroughly with water immediately after the race. Showers are available. In case of bleeding wounds participants will be immediately removed from the race and treated by a first aid official or nurse.

VenloStormt collects samples of the water and mud and will keep these for two weeks in case participants develop symptoms that may be linked to the water or mud. The GHOR will be informed in case of any symptoms to enable them to take action.
