Run, skip, slide and run to new obstacles at CM Challenge Manila


Color Manila’s CM CHALLENGE, the biggest obstacle fun run in the country, is scheduled on July 30, 2017, at McKinley West, Taguig, after successful back to back legs in Cebu, Laguna, and most recently – Cavite.

CM Challenge is a unique fun run as it incorporates obstacles on the race route. Participants a.k.a “Challengers” need to skip, slide, crawl, climb walls, and run, all at their own pace. Color Manila adds its own flavor of colorful fun as color stations are situated throughout the route; runners start off clean but end up awash in color as they cross the finish line. Capping off the experience is the Color Festival where everyone tosses color powder up in the air while dancing to the latest beats.


“After a series of successful runs earlier this year, we are confident that runners in Metro Manila will enjoy CM Challenge. We want to take the usual fun run experience to the next level by offering different experiences every time,” says COLOR MANILA VP Justine Cordero. Some of the more advanced obstacles featured in the CM Challenge Manila leg are in partnership with the Pilipinas Obstacle Sports Federation (POSF).  POSF is the only legitimate and governing sports association for Obstacle Sports/ Obstacle Course Racing in the Philippines with a nationwide membership base.

Participants of CM Challenge Manila may choose between three (3) race categories, 3K, 5K, or 10K. They also have the option of choosing between the Deluxe, Trooper, and the Challenger race kit.
