Bigger obstacles and a tougher course for this year’s Men’s Health Urbanathlon
The country’s first obstacle laden race is back promising an even tougher course this 2013. The Men’s Health Urbanathlon is happening on September 29 at the SM Mall of Asia Grounds. This unique event combines the rigors of a run with the tough nature of traversing numerous obstacles in an urban setting.
Participants can choose to join either the 5, 10, or 21 KM categories. This year’s set of obstacles promises to challenge racers even more. Aside from the 8-foot wall, scaffolding maze, and monkey bars, you’ll have to go over an 8-foot container van, climb a 12-feet high rope, and conquer a 50-foot net stretched over a bus on your way to the finish line.
Registration for the event opens on August 1 and ends on September 25 at the following places: 360 Fitness Club Ortigas, Makati, and Quezon City, ROX at Bonifacio High Street, and Gold’s Gym in Alabang. To help prepare racers for this tough event, Men’s Health is also holding an Urbanathlon Boot Camp on August 7 and 14 at Mercato Centrale, Bonifacio Global City. Here you get to try the obstacles as well as get tips and sample workouts to help strengthen your resolve in time for race day.
