The second edition of this already popular and unique race will take place in the magnificent Singha Park in Chiang Rai on April 27, 2014.

“After last year big success, we are proud to bring back this type of obstacle and mud kind of race in the beautiful Singha Park in Northern Thailand. This is the perfect place for hosting this type of adventure race” says Serge Henkens, director of Active Management Asia and race organizer.

“This race is not about winning, it is about fun, teamwork, camaraderie and friendship” continues Henkens. “Are you ready to get wet and dirty?”

“In parallel to the main event, we will also offer a 3km fun run for children and families. This is a family event where we’ll see people from many different countries, cultures, colors, and ages, get together in a friendly and festive atmosphere”

What is an Obstacle Race?

Obstacle racing is a sport in which a competitor, traveling on foot, must overcome various physical challenges (obstacles). They combine mud and trail runs. Obstacles include, but are not limited to, climbing over walls, carrying heavy objects, traversing bodies of water (but not swimming), crawling under nets or through drainage pipes. Many obstacles are similar to those used in military training, whilst others are unique to obstacle racing, and are employed throughout the course to test endurance, strength, speed and dexterity. Races vary in both distance and challenge level, combining trail running and cross country running.

The course is a 7.5km lap and includes 10 obstacles

We are offering 2 distances for soloists
7.5km ( 1 lap-10 obstacles)
