The Warrior Race burst onto the scene in 2013 and immediately spearheaded the meteoric rise of obstacle racing in South Africa. It quickly grew to up to 9000 participants per event and remains at the forefront of the growth spurt in the fledgling sport of obstacle racing with its larger than life obstacles and innovative courses to challenge South Africans.
It was no surprise when leading vehicle manufacturer Jeep South Africa spotted the obvious synergy with the Warrior Race and its adventure loving participants grabbing the headline sponsorship in 2014.
Then in July of 2016 The Warrior Race announced a second partnership with non other than Reebok, who have become synonymous with obstacle course racing throughout the world, and are now the official clothing brand for The Warrior Race.
According to the Warrior Race one of the reasons why obstacle racing is so popular, is because anyone can participate. All you need is a pair of old running shoes and a great sense for adventure. What makes obstacle racing unique is that it is one of only a few opportunities for athletes from different sporting codes, like cycling, trail running, road running, crossfit, karate, judo, rugby, soccer, hockey, etc. get to compete against each other on a level playing field.
