For the first time in its obstacle course racing history, the Toyota WARRIOR powered by Reebok will make a visit to the Freestate.
The popular series challenges athletes to complete a set course by foot, which involves overcoming carefully chosen challenges that are in the form of obstacles. With a Rookie, Commando, and Black Ops category on offer, participants have the opportunity to choose the course that suits their fitness level best.
The event will take place in Bloemfontein on Saturday only – think all the excitement of The Warrior Race compressed into a single day! The Black Ops (and Black Ops Elite) route will be the same as the Commando route except for one Black Ops specific obstacle, extra carries and an extended run.
For those looking for a high-intensity challenge, an exciting Reebok Sprint Race will also take place. The event can be entered individually or as a team, and involves a shorter and highly compressed obstacle course. The action-packed loop makes for nothing less than spectating heaven.
Young adventurers are invited to join in on the action too. An obstacle course designed for children will be available where they can let their inherent climbing abilities run free! There will also be a WARRIOR Kids Zone under the supervision of child-minders.
The fun doesn’t stop once the race is over. With a beer tent, food stalls, swimming pools, the highest super tube slide in South Africa and good music to enjoy after the event, you’re in for a lekker vibe.ENTRIES CLOSED
