Riversands The Warrior Race Rookie 2017-11-25  


The Warrior Race


Warrior Rookie
Saturday, November 25, 2017
Riversands Farm
Riversands Farm
South Africa

Rookie is all about fun and comradery. It is the shortest distance with the easiest obstacles.  You will be crawling, climbing and jumping your way through the course – running is not even required! The Rookie race is a great opportunity to challenge your friends and colleagues to try something out of the ordinary – and a little bit muddy. Although the main focus is on obstacles that are fun, we have thrown in one or two that will challenge you mentally and physically.

For those with a competitive side, the Elite category requires individuals to race against one another to win prizes from our sponsors. All obstacles have to be completed in order to not be disqualified. No teams or assistance with other participants is allowed.
