Hi there,

What is the name of a sport event, mainly running, which test participants' agility. There will be a lot of things for participants to go through, like the things in dog agility competition?

Thanks

Normally, (at the Olympics), the things that participants go through are divided into separate activities....the vault, the parallel bars, the rings, etc. I have not seen participants running between these activities. Perhaps you are thinking of a sport unique to one country ?

You might be thinking of an 'obstacle course'.
