Challenge lovers will have the opportunity to test their toughness in the Singha Obstacle Trail Series, which stops in three provinces this year.

The sixth staging of the event has its first leg at Kao E-to in Prachin Buri on May 26, the second at Suanphueng Highland in Ratchaburi on September 8 and the final stop at Singha Park in Chiang Rai on December 8.

“Greatness” is the theme for the opening run which focuses on the ability of competitors to get through each obstacle course. “Toughness” is the theme for the second stop where competitors must rely on their physical fitness to overcome while ‘’Braveness” is require in the third circuit in order to survive all the challenges.

Each circuit will consist of three events: individual, team and a family kids walk-run.

The individual competition comprises an 8km sprint of 20 obstacle courses and a 15km Lionheart (8km main route run and 7km nature route run).

The four-member team event features three 8km runs – the first two members are responsible for the 8km run, the other two for the second 8km and all four members must compete in the last run.

For the family kids walk-run, only children over six can compete over 2km.

Senior Vice President Singha Corporation Rungsrid Luxsitanonda says the event have been successfully held over the past five years and underlines the company’s policy to make Thai people aware of the importance of exercise.

“Competitors will have a run and a smile. They will be challenged with various kinds of obstacles amid beautiful nature,” Runsrid said.
