Break Boundaries! Participation Terms and Conditions 

We think sports funding should be easier. You’ll get an easier way to raise funds for you and other athletes by making it more fun and lucrative for fans and brands. The Peakz Challenge: Break Boundaries acts as a “light” version of scoutfunding. 

We are launching two competitions for the challenge ‘Break Boundaries’. One for Men and one for Women, with a total prize money of € 2.750,-.

It’s a first possibility to compete again in this competition-less time. Defeat other athletes at or near the top – first-place winners get € 750, runner-ups get € 250, and 5 early birds can win € 75! 

Please read the below carefully. You must comply with our rules, guidelines and policies in order to compete for the prizes.

These terms attempt to safely, fairley and transparently guide these behaviours on our platform.
