Happening on November 18 at the CamSur Watersports Complex, the TNF Outdoor Challenge will not be the usual racing event. Rather, it will be a trail running race held within an expansive outdoor course that will feature various obstacles ‒ reflecting The North Face’s advocacy of nurturing an inclusive community of active individuals who are in touch with the outdoors. The TNF Outdoor Challenge is expecting at least a thousand attendees including fitness and outdoor enthusiasts, runners, mountain climbers, hikers, and athletes from all corners of the country.

With the two race categories of 11km and 22km, the racing course dubbed as the Outdoor Endurance Challenge Course will be made up of a mixed terrain route, 12 mountain challenge obstacles for the 22km category, seven mountain challenges for the 11km category, and four different ecosystem zones ‒ earth, endurance, forest, and water. The race will feature adventure challenges in various points of the route that will be comparable to training obstacles like mud-crawling, rock climbing, fallen tree hurdles, etc.
