If you have what it takes to tackle a number of obstacles, then the Toyota Warrior Race is a sporting event you should not miss.

“The race is a perfect combination of hard core fitness and fun for everyone taking part,” says Hennie Scheepers of Advendurance and one of the organisers of the Warrior Race.

Taking place at Heja Lodge on 23 March, distances range from 5 to 12 km in three different categories, namely Rookies, Commandos and the Black-Ops. The 12 km Black-Ops elite will see athletes take on 30 obstacles, while those competing in the 12 km Black Ops will have to complete 20 obstacles.

The athletes in the Commando category will complete 10 km with 20 obstacles while the Rookies can enjoy a “walk in the park” 5 km race with 15 obstacles. “The race is open to everyone and the three categories allows you to choose your fitness level accordingly,” he says.

While the Rookie is all about fun and camaraderie, athletes will still be crawling, climbing and jumping their way through the course. “Running is not even required,” Hennie laughs. And if you can’t complete an obstacle, a marshal will give you a set amount of burpees to do based on the difficulty of the obstacle.

The commando and black-ops elite is for athletes who would like to test their endurance and toughness" on the field. This is for the more competitive athlete.

Each race is customised to its environment, “and we know the people from Namibia are tough as nails,” Hennie says. The race includes obstacles like the infamous mud-monster and avalanche.

According to him, the Toyota Warrior Race is a bucket list item for many people, and one of those events you can train within a short term. “It encourages people to never give up when the going gets tough and to be brave whilst facing many of the obstacles both on and off the field.”

Interested athletes can opt to go it alone or enter teams. Fees for the Black-Ops Elite and Black-Ops cost N$550, while the costs for the Commando is N$470 per entry. Rookies pay N$400.
Entries are open until race day, unless it is sold out before. Athletes can enter via www.jumpertrax.com. Special discounted prices are in place for teams of 10 and more.
