Event Name: Men's Health Philippines Urbanathlon and Festival 2014
Date & Assembly Time: 16 November 2014 Sunday, 4:00 AM
Event Venue: Nuvali Fields 3, Sta. Rosa, Laguna

What would you do if you will run the MensHealth Urbanathlon Race? Train, and train harder. 

New grounds! New terrain! New test of toughness. These are just a few words that best describe this year's MH Urbanathlon Race.

Men's Health Urbanathlon 2014 Promises a New Test of Tough!

I joined last year's event and earned a medal through an extraordinary effort. Boy, this race was not just an ordinary road race where you will just run and run until you reach the finish line. MH Urbanathlon, now on it's 9th year, is something that will blow you away out of your comfort zone. With the presence of obstacles that everyone must pass thru, you need an extra ton of training, wit and mental toughness to make it through. I would say, it is agility that will help you to finish this one tough race.

So, if you are searching for something, training, nutrition and some for this race, join their Urbanathlon Boot Camp, and train the right way. The camp, which will be held on October 2014, includes a mini-event for all participants to help them train and try out the obstacles before race day.
