Three of us are going for the 3km Family Obstacle course.
The whole area has a carnival-like atmosphere. Runners, families are all eager to start early to avoid the Sun.
Every 60 seconds, one batch of runners are released.
Eight obstacles should not be too challenging right?
And off we go, it did not took us long to find the tyres!
Hop and jump is easy, but we did not expect the numerous slopes along the trail, some with 30 degrees incline!

And we are only at the 500m mark…
Video : The sun and the slope was unforgiving. We had to be careful when we ran down the slippery gravel hill. One slip could meant a bad bruise or sprain.
The track in Mandai is a path less travelled. And the scenic paths (with BKE on the right) does relieved some of our weariness.
Ooops, we are tramping on Protected Area hee hee.
Great outdoors, we are sweating buckets ! But Daddy must keep up our spirit and momentum (and still find time to take video).
Must find some time and shade to take selfie, showoff to Mummy.
(Taking photo is an excuse for Daddy to catch his breath)
Can you spot the Durian trees? Husks were spotted on the floor, someone has been harvesting the Durians 🙂
Water Parade to hydrate ourselves.
As if 3km is not long enough, add in tyres, nets and even a bouncing castle!
The obstacles made Energizer Singapore Night Trail much more challenging.
The swamp was not too muddy and wet, lucky us. But Daddy thought it would be more authentic to remove the planks, let everyone get mud spa :p
Once we started on our challenge, No U Turn :p
Kids only knew that they are going for some run 2 days before, and Daddy was not sure whether he has they would have the stamina.
Not your usual bouncing castle! Obstacle points actually offers runners an opportunity to catch their breaths.
Yes, we did it ! We took 30min to complete our 3km obstacle course. We even manage to dash across the finishing line together.
Daddy is super impressed and proud of the kids’ endurance and achievement.
Refreshing fruits and ice creams to cool down participants.
There are post run activities and entertainment to keep kids happy.
Although the race was quite tiring, we strive to complete the challenge together.
Jump for Joy !
