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.
