After three Viper Challenges, one has to wonder how different can an obstacle challenge get? Well, as many discovered on 23 May 2015, one can get plenty of different with a change of venue. Brought to you by the organisers of Viper Challenge, Viper Arena 2015 took place within and around the concrete walls of Shah Alam Stadium, consisting of a 7km run and 15 obstacles and not without an added twist. It took place well into the evening and overnight.
Once again, my team assembled ourselves, decked out in our orange team shirts sponsored by myNews.com and gathered at the Shah Alam Stadium on 23 May for the 630pm wave. Registration and bag drop were fast. We were given our bag tags with its number written on our arms. Even before we started, we had to help each other climb over four mini walls just to get to the start line. Waves were released every 5 minutes or so and at the shout of 'Go!', we were off.
