New obstacles, new venue, same great racing experience… The Men’s Health Urbanathlon is happening on November 16 at Nuvali in Sta. Rosa, Laguna!
The Urbanathlon is the signature event of Men’s Health worldwide, combining running in the city with obstacles. Download the info packet here.
They expect over 3,000 participants over the 5K, 10K, and 21K distances. If you’re looking for a short quick obstacle race, choose the 5K. If you want a longer run to challenge your cardiovascular system as well as your climbing and crawling muscles, the 10K and 21K are for you.
This year’s barriers include a tire field, the scaffold maze, a container van, the low crawl, monkey bars, the military up-and-under, the network, rope shimmy, and an 8-foot wall. Whew!
