“The Obstacle Warrior League and National Championships are the kind of events which raise the bar and set new standards for sporting events in Malaysia. This is definitely a one-of-its kind sports event which is highly entertaining and should not be missed. With the Covid-19 pandemic keeping us home most of last year and this year, I know there are many who turned their homes into gyms and even created mini obstacle courses to work out. So, it is time to put all your training and skills to the test in this obstacle course,” said Alex Cheah, President of MORSA.
Founded in 2015, MORSA has over 15,000 members in Malaysia and Malaysia is the first country to have its own Obstacle Race Sports Association. With over 20 international affiliates, MORSA’s charter has been replicated to guide the formation of other Obstacle Race Sports Associations internationally.
Obstacle Racing is now a nationwide phenomenon which has become a leading sport, where competitors train year-round, some gyms have introduced obstacle race facilities and a training community has formed.
The Obstacle Warrior 2021 National Championships Malaysia is set to see up to 400 Malaysian contestants racing against the clock to become the final 20, who will proceed to compete in the finals on 19th December 2021.
This competition is only open to Malaysians and is split into three categories. The categories are Male, Female and Youth (Under 17), where winners from each category will share RM5,000 in prize money.
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, all participants will be required to arrive 90 minutes beforehand and to comply with all safe practices and rules set by the organiser.
