What better way to kick start the year than with a muddy adventure! South Africa’s largest obstacle course racing series, the Toyota WARRIOR powered by Reebok, is set to return with more excitement than ever.
After a highly successful season finale, The Warrior Race has chosen to return to Riversands Farm Village as the first venue on the 2018 calendar.
A spacious countryside will greet competitors with acres of rolling lawns, forests and even a river. An added bonus will be the selection of food stalls, coffee shops and craft brewery to enjoy once the race is done.
The event calls adventure seekers from all walks of life – whether a weekend WARRIOR or an elite athlete hoping to snatch up the series title. With a Rookie, Commando, and Black Ops category on offer, WARRIOR has something for everyone.
For the first time in the popular series there will be an escape route for those who don’t find the idea of mud particularly appealing. Instead of diving into the infamous Mud Monster, participants will have the option of taking a penalty loop that will take them the same amount of time to complete. The ‘mudless’ option will not be made available to any Elite athletes, however.
Adventure seekers looking for some extra high-speed excitement have the option of entering the popular Reebok Sprint Race.
A specifically designed children’s obstacle course will be available for little adventurers, as well as a WARRIOR Kids Zone under the supervision of child-minders.
Toyota #WARRIOR1 powered by Reebok is not to be missed!
Grohe Rejuvenation Zone:
An open air clean-up zone will be available where you can wash off most of the mud. Men’s and Ladies dressing rooms will also be available. Please note that this is a rinse-off zone so please be considerate by not spending too much time under the showers.
