The Toyota WARRIOR powered by Reebok will make its next stop in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga.
As the gateway to Kruger National Park, the area is renowned for wildlife sightings and an authentic bushveld feel.
This provides the ideal space for participants to bring out their inner WARRIOR and take on a proudly South African adventure! The event will challenge participants to complete a set course by foot that involves various exciting obstacles. Adventure seekers have three categories to choose from to suit their level of experience – Rookie, Commando and Black Ops.
WARRIOR has something for everyone, whether you’re a non-athletic adventurous spirit or an elite athlete looking to snatch up the series title. Corporate packages are also available for a one of a kind team building experience.
The event will take place in Nelspruit on Saturday only – think all the excitement of The Warrior Race compressed into a single day! A full Black Ops route will be available for competitors looking for a challenge.
A highlight of the day will certainly be the Reebok Sprint Race. The action-packed event involves a shorter and compressed obstacle course which can be entered individually or as a team.
WARRIOR is intent in its purpose of making fun a family-affair. An obstacle course designed specifically for children will be available, as well as a WARRIOR Kids Zone under the supervision of child-minders.
Don’t miss out – WARRIOR is about to bring out the best and bravest version of you!
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.
