Delhi will see its first Obstacle Race on 10th March 2013. The run promises to be a litmus test for strength – physical and mental. The organisers say, “We will make you scorch and sweat and push yourself, and you might just discover reserves of toughness you never knew.”

The race, which is open to anyone above 16 years of age, would be a 4km one covering over 20 obstacles that the participants will have to tackle.
