Obstacle Course Racing South African Championships – more info

After coming to the area for the first time last year, the Toyota WARRIOR powered by Reebok discovered that obstacle course racing on the beach is a hit!  Competitors will once again be challenged to conquer carefully chosen obstacles that extend over a specific trail, either as individuals or as part of a team.

Corporate packages are available for a one of a kind team building experience. With three categories on offer, the event caters for all levels of fitness – Rookie, Commando and Black Ops.

The popular Reebok Sprint Race will also be a key feature of the KZN event, which involves a shorter course, high-speed action, and big prize money.

The WARRIOR weekend is a fun-filled family affair with something for everyone to enjoy.  Young adventures can play to their heart’s delight in the WARRIOR Kids Zone under the supervision of child-minders.

They also have a specifically designed obstacle course to put to the test for as many muddy rounds as they wish.

A beer tent, food stalls and good music to enjoy after the event promises nothing less than a lekker vibe!
