The Men’s Health Urbanathlon returns for its 8th edition on the 4th March 2017 – with BIGGER, BADDER and TOUGHER obstacles than ever before! Bring your A game because it’s going to be a whole new level of tough and fun. This year, Urbanathletes get to experience a free-form running in the heart of Orchard, and tackle a series of obstacle zones that challenge will challenge both their physical and mental capabilities.
This Urban Obstacle Race is set out to be the coolest and toughest edition yet. There will be 4 mega obstacle zones that comprise various themed obstacles. Their locations will be revealed to runners before the race, and participants will plan their own route to each obstacle zone on an estimated 12 kilometre course. Can it get any cooler?
Urbanathletes can look forward to finishing off the race with style – a grand finale obstacle – The Urban Warrior Course. It is a brand new multi-stage obstacle structure that will be erected at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza, with grueling challenges that only the fittest can survive. Think Ninja Warrior, but now starring you!
