Second, we’re calling all athletic men and women. For the First time ever, Women are invited to take on Singapore’s toughest urban obstacle course race. Why? Because they can.

Both sexes, however, will face exactly the same physical obstacles that will test their total body fitness, cardiovascular capacity and mental tenacity. And it’s tougher than ever.

Consider these new highlights:

  • Navigate your way across a field of tyres, crates and wooden planks
  • Run with a 20kg sandbag soaked in water (Workload).
  • Try not to fall face-first on the parallel bars (Lateral Move).


Outstanding prizes await the top five runners for the individual category, and top three teams from the corporate category.

Everyone who completes the race gets a finisher’s T-shirt, medal and personalised certificate.

Race Goodies

Each Urbanathlete will receive an Adidas race singlet, race pack and free six-month subscription to Men’s Health and a chance at our lucky draw to win goodies, from Olympus cameras to Nautica and Polar watches.

Minimum Age

The race is open to runners 18 years old and above. Hurry, though – only a limited number of race slots are available.
