Singapore’s Most Badass Mud And Obstacle Race

2 November 2o12, Singapore – Once in a blue moon, we like to push ourselves to the limit to see what we are capable of. Singaporeans are addicted to running marathons, regardless if its day or night. This time round, the Metropolitant team took it further. We signed ourselves up for the Lion Dash, Extreme Mud and Obstacles Race.

Yes, registration was in June (alas the portal wasn’t launched yet). So we will share our excitement for the race with all of you, by giving you a low down on all the obstacles. Lion Dash is an extreme mud and obstacle course event series that is designed to take runners out of their comfort zone and throw them into a new and challenging adventure that many have not experienced before.  This is not road running or even trail running, this is mud and obstacle racing. Now, thats challenging.
