On the 23/1/11 Polar organize their the 3rd and last training bootcamp for the Men’s Health Urbanathlon participant leading up to the event. Building on the experience from last year’s bootcamps for the race, the participants benefit a great deal from these sessions.
The Bootcamp is unlike the usual training runs as the programme is a customized to focus on the agility, strength and core training to help participants overcome the obstacles during the race.
Throughout the 3 bootcamp session there will be obstacle simulations together with high intensity workouts to help train boost participant’s stamina. On this final installment of the bootcamp participant was lead to a 12km run from Hort Park to Telok Blangah which follows a 25-storey vertical climb.
