Urbanathlon On My Mind

{The Wall}


{Tire Dump}
When your mind starts to wander and your work desk starts to look like an urban playground, I'm thinking a few kilometers of running around is a good way to release that pent up energy. And mind you, not just ordinary running, but the much-anticipated, ultra challenging Men's Health Urbanathlon.
I was invited for a preview of things to come during the blogger's launch (carboloading at Italianni's) of the Urbanathlon 2010. And this year's race promises a tougher course. For the weekend warriors in need of a new scene, the Urbanathlon is out to prove why it's one of the annual races sport aficionados watch out for.
Aside from the usual suspects, there are new obstacles to "secret train" for:
  • The Wall (An oldie but 8-ft goodie.)
  • Low Crawl (Time to get down and dirrrrty!)
  • Hurdles (Careful. Slippery when wet.)
  • Scaffolding Maze (In lieu of last year's "weaving" obstacle.)
  • Tire Dump (Weave through 200 tires stacked on top of each other.)
  • Balance Beam (Supposedly new, but I remember channeling my very, very little ballet balancing skills on a similar obstacle during the 1st Urbanathlon back in 2007. Doubly challenging when you're wearing mud for shoes.)

P.S. Oh, and I won't miss the Vertical Sky Run obstacle (stairs) AT ALL! ;)

The Urbanathlon will be held on November 7, 2010, Sunday, 5:00 A.M. at Bonifacio Global City (BGC), Taguig City. The registration fee for the race is P500 (for both 5K and 10K distances) and includes a race shirt, drink stubs from Gatorade, food stubs from Century Tuna, and an issue of Men's Health magazine.
