Love the idea of obstacle races? Chennaiiites can look forward to the Killermeter Obstacle Course Race in February. It is organised adventure sports brand, Wild Warrior that has been co-founded by tennis star, Somdev Devvarman. This is a first-of its kind obstacle race that will feature a 1 km course on the Kovalam beach on 3rd Feb 2019 with 15 state-of-the-art obstacles. You need to register to participate in the race.
Wild Warrior organises obstacle course races, triathlons and trail runs across Bengaluru, Chennai, Coimbatore, New Delhi and Nepal. Unlike traditional marathon events, obstacle racing involves a fixed distance of trail running such as 1 km, 3km, 5km or 10 km and involves several obstacles that require participants to climb, crawl, carry, push or pull to get through obstacles. In addition to testing the endurance of the athletes, it also tests the strength, power, agility and flexibility of the athletes and offers a holistic test of fitness.
Wild Warrior is affiliated to the World Obstacle Course Racing Federation (World OCR) and the Indian Federation of Adventure Sports and Racing (IFASR). The top 3 men and women at the end of Wild Warrior’s first season will qualify for the Asian OCR Championships to be held in Manila over summer. Sanjay Negi from Agra and Sanjana George from Bengaluru are currently in pole positions as they won both the Bengaluru and Coimbatore events.
