At A Glance
Singapore’s Ultimate Obstacle Event, The Commando Challenge is back on 17 October 2015. Held on Sentosa Island, the 2015 edition has more obstacles than last year with 14 challenges for commandos to get over, under and around. With new and old elements including the beach run, track and jungle paths and of course the crowd favourites – Fire, Ice and Electricity!
There are 2 event categories: Commando and Extreme Commando. Each category is designed to push commandos to their limit.
Are you Commando enough?
No other race event in Singapore has a 5-7km run along the beaches, tracks, and jungle of Sentosa Island, with 14 military style obstacles all culminating in a huge party atmosphere on Siloso Beach.
The obstacles demand all-round fitness – The event organizers draw on their years of experience of selecting and training elite soldiers to develop a course that can be completed by an individual or as part of a team.
While a healthy and trained physique will be helpful in completing the obstacles, the spirit of determination, resilience, courage and unity can become the winning formula for the multi-elements obstacles.
You can enter the Commando Challenge as an individual but for the maximum fun, you should gather friends, colleagues, family and anyone keen to take on the challenge as a team. It’s a great way to get out, get dirty and have some fun!
Old vs New Edition
Last year, 3,000 participants tackled the 5km route in Sentosa for the first time, where never-before-seen elements of fire, ice and electricity being introduced into the Singapore race scene. Extreme Commandos took on a route which included a 15kg backpack, a high ropes course, a 450m zip line, and a swim.
In contrast, for this year’s race, the organisers are expecting over 5,000 people to challenge an alternative 6km route in Sentosa, with brand new obstacles to conquer, in addition to some of last year’s favourite obstacles.
Participants can also expect the unexpected as there will also be a few surprises for this year’s challenge! Besides carrying a 15kg backpack, Extreme Commandos will be taking on a 10km route with up to 20 obstacles this year.

For this challenging race event, you can expect yourself to be crawling through mud, overcoming fears, coping with water obstacles and more! Despite the physical and mental exhaustion and fatigue, the sense of achievement and unrivalled sense of accomplishment and pride at the finishing line will be priceless and memorable for a lifetime.
Remember: Special Forces standards are not expected, but a Special Forces attitude definitely is – Never, never give up.
