Running on pavement is fairly easy. Running a trail run adds some challenge. Running on pavement, trail and going through 9 obstacles of varying difficulties is a whole different story! This November, the first obstacle laden race returns at a cooler venue.

The Men’s Health Urbanathlon is happening on November 16 at the Nuvali grounds in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. The signature event of Men’s Health worldwide is a unique race that combines an endurance run with strategically placed obstacles against an urban backdrop.
