The race of your life

The Ascent is a 5-kilometer long obstacle course race with over 20 obstacles; the first of it's kind in Africa.
It is an intense physical and mental challenge, inspired by the world-renowned Warrior's Race.

You can participate by yourself, or as a team.
The motivation? That's up to you - weight loss, testing your limits, proving a point, staying fit, fun etc. But there's one ultimate common goal: to persevere together

With the help of your fellow Ascenders, you’ll overcome obstacles, adrenaline-pumping challenges...and the little voice in your head that says "you can’t."

Speed, endurance, force, explosiveness, balance, FUN… Varied and intense challenges await you!

Burn a maximum of calories over a reduced period, and tone the whole body because all the muscles are used. Your agility, your coordination and your cardio-respiratory capacities are improved thanks to cardio-training sessions. Mentally, you will come out stronger. You will learn more about yourself, your resistance to stress and your team spirit.


Tougher Together

The strength of one person is nothing compared to the power of a team. This challenge, with its team-oriented obstacles guarantees that you’ll cross the finish line with more friends than you started with. Whether it’s through a helping hand or an extra vote of confidence, your fellow will be there for you every step of the way. Whether you arrive solo or with a team, all you need to come with is the strength to leave your fears in the parking lot and the willingness to push the boundaries of your comfort zone.

Gear up for the ride of your life
