The Toughest Men’s Health Urbanathlon yet happens in October

The Philippine edition of Men’s Health, the largest men’s lifestyle magazine, will hold its annual Men’s Health Urbanathlon & Festival event on Sunday, October 14 at SM Mall of Asia from 5:00AM – 10:00AM.  Celebrity host, Rovilson Fernandez, will be at the helm of the event.

On its 6th staging, the country’s original obstacle laden race is expected to be significantly tougher, bigger and more intense this time around.  Designed to test the urbanathlete’s fitness level, the event now has a 21K distance aside from the usual 5K and 10K categories.

The city-based, multi-disciplinary race requires more than just perfect running form as this also tests the racer’s endurance to withstand a mix of 7 uniquely engineered obstacles that all increases in difficulty in each race categories.  Such obstacles involve Monkey & Parallel bars, Steeple chase & modified tires, Container vans, Wall climb, Vertical climb, Scaffolding maze and Military hurdles.

One of the obstacles in this event involves going over a container van
