The Men’s Health Urbanathlon, a highlight on the Singapore running calendar, takes things up a notch in 2015, with several personalities looking to display the mental toughness and physical endurance that is the cornerstone of five decades of nation-building.


With brand new obstacles like Tipping Point, Bottom Line and Wheel & Deal awaiting them, and revamped versions of old favourites like The Network, Workload, Balance Sheet, and Leap of Faith, all Urbanathletes will have to dig deep into their physical and mental reserves to conquer these challenges.

On top of this, following on last year’s popular Mystery Obstacle, is another that will test their bodies and minds like no plain run can.

“The Men's Health Urbanathlon is back once more, and this sixth edition will be a special one,” says Pang Lee Cheng, SPH Magazine’s General Manager. “We're dedicating it to Singapore's Golden Jubilee celebration, symbolic of the grit and determination that has helped the nation come so far.”

Amongst the personalities who have confirmed their attendance are: Minister of State Teo Ser Luck, Singapore mountaineer Edwin Siew, SCDF personnel Francis Tan, special forces commando Ewin Teo, and para-athletes such as “One-Armed Runner” Adam Kamis and “ Blade Runner” Shariff Abdullah. In addition, there will also be runners who share our nation’s birth year, whose sprightly enthusiasm for the Men’s Health Urbanathlon belies their age.
