CM Challenge Manila on August 18

The other weekend I was browsing my social media feeds, and it seemed as if every other person I knew had gone off to do some obstacle course racing. Their mud-stained grins as they held up their finisher medals showed how much the accomplishment meant to them.

But racing on obstacle courses has gotten the reputation of being the realm of hardcore athletes. What if you’re just here to have fun?

Enter CM Challenge, which incorporates Color Manila’s signature fun into what they call the biggest obstacle run in the country! CM Challenge Manila 2019 is happening on August 18 at SM by the Bay. It’s an untimed event where you’ll be running 3K, 5K, or 10K encountering “obstacles” along the way.

Since there are obstacles, you need to be 8 years old or older to join. But don’t worry, there’s no consequence if you don’t complete an obstacle! CM Challenge Manila is an obstacle-related event that intends to challenge participants, but its end goal is still for you to have fun. And then waiting for you at the end is the Color Festival with music and color powder (of course).

Race kits are priced in Deluxe (P950), Trooper (P1500), and VIP (P2000) tiers, regardless of distance. Check out the inclusions below:
