Obstacle Courses:

What makes this run different are the 20 obstacles courses! You’d literally just be transferring from one obstacle to the other! Moreover, the obstacles won’t be too light or easy! These are actually obstacles that the marines themselves go through as part of their training! Not to worry though, there will be marshals ready to help you if you can’t get through. On the other hand, if you decide to skip the obstacle, a few minutes will be added to your time. I suggest however that you just suck it in and go! It’s part of the experience right?


  • Obstacle #1: Rocky Road
  • Obstacle #2: Low Crawl (runners move forward under the wire on their bellies to the end of the obstacle. The surface is filled with sand or sawdust to reduce the tendency to push)
  • Obstacle #3: Maze



  • Obstacle #4: Tunnel (runners must climb up and down to get inside the tunnel)
  • Obstacle #5: Walls (jump up, grasp the top and pull yourself up and over. Walls will be 1.2 and 2.4m high)
  • Obstacle #6: Balancing Logs (step up on a log and walk or run along it while keeping balance)
  • Obstacle #7: Tough Nut (Participants would negotiate through the course by stepping over each X log in the lane)



  • Obstacle #8: Belly Buster(vault, jump, or climb over the log. FYI, the log will be turning! )
  • Obstacle  #9: Pendulum Tires (pass through a maze of swinging car and truck tires hanging from a structure)



  • Obstacle #10: Weaver (participants will weave their bodies under one bar and over the next)
  • Obstacle #11: Reverse Climb (climb the reverse incline and go down the other side)



  • Obstacle #12: Baby Crawl (balance on a double rope and pull yourself vertically to progress through the course)
  • Obstacle #13: Commando Crawl (balance on a single rope and pull vertically to progress through the course)


Baby Crawl and Commando Crawl


  • Obstacle #14: Rope Bridge (balance in an upright position using the two ropes as a bridge walking past the course)
  • Obstacle #15: Cargo Net (climb the net until you reach the very top of the obstacle then go down the other side)
  • Obstacle #16: Gorilla Bars (similar to a monkey bar but with bigger distances between each bar)
  • Obstacle #17: Inclining Wall (approach the underside of the wall, jump up and slide down the incline)
  • Obstacle #18: Island Hop
  • Obstacle #19: Mud Swim (pass through a mud pit and swim your way across)



  • Obstacle #20: Low Rail


*Obstacles may still change without prior notice

 *Transportation from the bus terminal in Cavite to the camp site will be provided. It’s gonna be a fun experience since participants would get to experience riding in an M35!


This is one race that you’d truly be proud to have finished! So what do you say guys? For a change, let’s pledge our strength to the country rather than to ourselves.
