WHAT IS HYROX?
HYROX was founded in 2017 by Christian Toetzke, an industry veteran in the international cycling, marathon and triathlon world, and Moritz Furste, one of Germany’s greatest ever hockey players and successful entrepreneur. HYROX was born out of the founders’ desire for an event that would bring the endurance and functional fitness worlds together in a format that replicated the activities that regular gym-goers actually did in their workouts. HYROX bridges the gap between traditional long-distance endurance events and functional fitness and attracts competitive athletes and enthusiasts from all sporting backgrounds.
HYROX is one of the fastest growing fitness modalities on the planet, participation in 2022 increased over 100% and in 2023 will have a forecast 90,000 participants globally. In 2022 the google search term HYROX increased by 127% and it was named in over 50 global Health and Fitness trends articles from independent media. Aligned with significant international brand partners, including Virus, Erdinger, and Redbull, HYROX is now continuing its rapid global expansion plans with over 40 races planned for 2023 in 11 different countries.
