  About event
The war brought out in Spencer Chapman, every resource, quality and determination he had developed in his life. His book titled 'The Jungle is Neutral', recounts his Malayan adventures and attests to his overriding love of nature and wildlife that had kept him going. For sheer courage and endurance, physical and mental, the officer-naturalist was an example of 'what toughness the body will find, if the spirit within it is tough'.

In 1945, British Colonel, Spencer Chapman, crossed enemy lines and made his escape following more than 3 years in hiding from the occupying Japanese army. Through sheer tenacity and unrelenting will, he swam across Emerald Bay and made his way to safety.

An ode to the unbreakable strength within the human spirit, The Chapman’s Challenge returns for its second year. Consisting of a 3.8 km road run around the island and 2.4 km through untouched rainforest, the race culminates with a 1 km swim in the sea of Emerald Bay before concluding at Chapman’s Bar.

However, instead of lying in wait for a submarine like the British commando did, refreshments and drinks will be served with our compliments for your achievements.

In the evening, join the rest of the participants at Chapman's Bar for pre-dinner cocktails. As the beach is bathed in the golden hues of the setting sun, enjoy a sumptuous barbecue dinner at Emerald Bay, prepared for you and your comrades to celebrate your achievements.

Finishing time of all participants will be recorded and the top 5 finishers will have their names on the scoreboard at Chapman’s Bar. The top three winners stand to win exciting stays at luxury properties within YTL Hotels' global portfolio.
