The Return of Men’s Health Urbanathlon (2011)

Men’s Health Urbanathlon is back!  A truly one of a kind event that anyone who is looking for some “exciting” race should not miss!  To those who haven’t heard of Urbanathlon: it’s not for the faint of heart!

Excerpts from the media release:

Do you have what it takes to be an Urbanathlete?  Get ready as Men’s Health Philippines brings you its most awaited race event the Men’s Health Urbanathlon & Festival 2011.  As Men’s Health magazine’s international signature event, the Urbanathlon features urban obstacles like hurdles, a scaffolding maze and an 8-foot wall among others along the race course, making it a race unlike any other.

Now on its fifth year, the Men’s Health Urbanathlon & Festival 2011 is happening on November 13, Sunday at Bonifacio Global City.  The race promises to test not just one’s speed and endurance, but also one’s strength, balance, agility and flexibility.

Register for the 5K, 10K, and 15K categories and get a three-month subscription to Men’s Health magazine. All finishers will get finishers medals with the 2011 Urbanathlon ID lanyard. Registration is until October 16 only. For registration details, grab a copy of the October issue of Men’s Health or visit Facebook.com/menshealthphilippines.

No, you can’t pick just one, you have to do them all! 😀

As always the shirt is really good, and for the finishers you get this really nice lanyard.  Of course your proud finisher’s medal will be hanging on it!

I don’t know how this year’s finisher’s medal would look like, but last year it looked like this:

Like I said Urbanathlon isn’t for the faint of heart.  It is a very challenging event but is definitely tons of fun!  If you’re up to the challenge of being called an “urbanathlete” show everyone what you got and sign-up!

To those who are curious of what to expect, here is my account of last year’s Urbanathlon.  By the way, Urbanathlon was also my birthday race last year. 🙂

    The obstacles look pretty do-able, save for the wall climb! Checked your review about it last year and the wall is 8ft high?? That’s the cause of my hesitation in registering (and I have a few days to decide nalang!). May parang opt-out clause ba sa obstacles? Haha 😀 Any tips to train for that climb?

      Yes you may skip the obstacles in exchange for some time penalty. Just observe how others do it and for sure you can do it as well
