The aim of this paper is to present a descriptive analysis of the volume and intensity of sprints during the course of a mixed touch rugby tournament. Analyze the specific profiles of players and members of this modality, with their possible differences in a competitive multi-party conference. The data comes from the assessment over the course of 4 games of 9 male players and five female players, totaling 56 data points from the athletes. To obtain the data, a global positioning system (GPS) with a frequency of 1 Hz was used. The results of this work facilitate an objective nature about the game of touch rugby which is particularly important for the number of impacts (accelerations and decelerations) players are subjected to, pointing to its physical demands in this regard are different to those analyzed in other forms of rugby
