Are You Ready To Accept The Warrior's Challenge?

Monday, September 18, 2017

Hey guys, is your calendar booked on the 11th November 2017?


Good, coz you're about to book the day for an unforgettable run that will test your endurance and sportsmanship in an Instagram-worthy way! A little birdie hopped on to my shoulder and told me that the one and only military concept obstacles run in Malaysia named the Warriors Challenge is making their second appearance in 2017 and you can't miss it this time.

The second instalment of 2017 will commence on 11.11.2017 at Universiti Pertahanan Nasional Malaysia (UPNM) from 8am to 2pm. Fret not, the race has no minimum cut-off time because they want you to take your time, enjoy and finish the race safely ;) Well, I was there during their first edition and lemme tell you, 6 hours time given is way more than enough for a anyone to finish the courses! Organised by Persatuan Veteran Angkatan Tentera Malaysia along with UPNM, this event is fully backed and supported by Angkatan Tentera Malaysia and the Ministry of Defense. Seeing the monstrous support they have, it's no surprise that the event will be officiated by no other than our Ministry of Defense, YB Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Tun Hussein.

If you've always wanted to try any of those military obstacles courses, now is the time because not every day an opportunity like this will come. The motive of Warriors Challenge 2017 being held is to let the public to experience first hand on how our army force trains, to test their mental and physical strengths to finish the run and well, to have fun in a healthy way ^_^ Warriors Challenge 2017 is also meant to trigger contestants to remember the sacrifices made by our armies in safeguarding national security all these years. For your information, a part of the registration fee will be contributed to Tabung Pahlawan, which has been set-up to help army veterans, widows of the service members who perished in action, and any of them who are in need. So remember, you're not only participating an obstacles run, you're also helping people in need, in a form of indirect sadaqah/charity :)

So, curious to know the challenges that will be faced by participants? Here's what you can expect :

  • 100m dash across the jet float on a pool, where one might get an early bath if he falls!
  • 2km run across a number of obstacles, military style ;)
