The Challenge Race

Post by Mark

It’s going to take place on January 26 and be a mixture of a trail run, off-road cycling and and an obstacle course. You can sign up individually or a team (max 3) but you should be part of a gym since this competition is going to be a challenge between local clubs. I’m signing up to this for sure since it sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun. They told me there will be mud!

If you want to sign up you can call the following number: 65778598

    have to be part of a gym? seriously what about people who just like to keep fit ‘outdoor’ style not allowed? seems kinda silly to me.

  2. Hello Mark,

    Thank you for posting about TNF Challenge race. I would like to give a quick brief about the race.

  4. Good morning Khalid,

    No, you must be part of a GYM/health club.

      Is there no way I can join without joining a gym? I spend hours a week in school and am fit because of that, I don’t see why a gym membership is needed?

    i like the idea, but i think its redundant that you must be part of a gym/health club. many people are extremely fit on their own.
    But it will be interesting to see which club is the winner…

    I guess Mark got his New Year’s wish.

    But yeah..I don’t see the whole thing about “being part of a gym” thing either.

    Same day as the Dubai marathon. And not much notice for a difficult race.

    I’m not eligible anyway. I don’t belong to a gym, I’m just a triathlete.

    Will mountain bikes be provided?
