Men’s Health is hosting their second annual Urbanathalon this month on Sept 29 in NYC and on October 20 in Chicago.
The Urbanathalon is a grueling run through the city, encountering obstacles along the way including a 52 stair climb, marine hurdles, barricade jumping, wall climbing, taxi hurdling and others. It’s a truly urban race.
The event was held in 2006 in New York City. Nearly 1000 participants from all over the World took part in the race.
Following the race, Men’s Health will host a free festival where the public can enjoy music, food and events throughout the day.
It all sounds like a good time. Check out some of the photos and videos from the 2006 race at the Men’s Health Urbanathalon website, here.
