This year’s edition of the Men’s Health Urbanathlon was the toughest ever –but Singaporean runners rose to the challenge.

#RunDifferent, the theme of this eighth Urbanathlon, broke free of the common obstacle-racing format with free-form running to four mega Obstacle Zones: Vertical Heights, a vertical run up 37 storeys of Singapore’s tallest building –Tanjong Pagar Centre; a huge Road Block including new obstacles such as Container Treads and Tyre Ladder; Maze Runner, a unique maze obstacle zone with various components such as Pole Traverse and Tyre Swing; followed by the final gruelling multi-stage obstacle circuit at the heart of Orchard Road –Urban Warrior.


About 20 local luminaries faced-off against each other at the Urban Warrior course. Our celebrity challengers includde Allan Wu, and Maxi Lim, Charlie Goh, Bunz and Noah Yap of Ah Boys to Men fame, together with almost the entire stable of ONE FM 91.3 DJs, including Glenn Ong, Andre Hoeden, Shaun Tupaz, Shan Wee, Cheryl Miles, Elliot Danker and Harry Corro.

Other participating celebrities include UFM DJ Low Wei Loong, Singapore’s professional race car driving couple Yuey Tan and Claire Louise Jedrek, S-League footballer Fabian Kwok, Randall Tan, Adrian Jalaludin, Fiona Lim, Wallace Ang and Caleb Wong.

To our Urbanathletes, we applaud all 3,000 of you –not only for your display of physical strength and agility but also your tenacity and determination to push on, regardless of rain or shine.

To our partners and sponsors like Adidas, Lab Series, Pirelli and Triplefit who helped make this awesome event happen once more.. it was a real pleasure to collaborating on such a win-win project that reaches out to the Singapore fitness community in an active fashion!
We look forward to seeing you at our next Men’s Health fitness challenge!
