The World's First Martial Arts themed Race - Dragon Run@Genting Highlands


Ok, you won't get your butt handed to you like Po but are you ready to be a dragon warrior? If obstacle races like Viper Challenge and Spartan Race scares the bejeebers out of you but still piques your curiosity, then the Dragon Run is right up your alley!

Get set for the world’s first martial arts inflatable obstacle race Dragon Run that will make its debut on 14 May and 15 May 2016 at The Ranch, Gohtong Jaya in Genting Highlands.


Designed for those with the love of martial arts and the thrill of a run, Dragon Run is an adrenaline-pumping 6K run around a course that incorporates eye-catching, often towering and certainly challenging Martial Arts-inspired obstacles. An all-ages event set in an Asian contemporary atmosphere, Dragon Run will feature activities for the whole family.

Start at the towering Dragon Gate before taking on the monstrous Giant Dragon, the complex Kung Fu-inspired all-in-one obstacle that will test your balance, endurance and agility. Then complete a course of 10 gigantic martial arts obstacles in the styles of Dragon Kung Fu, Taekwondo, Muay Thai, Sumo and Jeet Kune Do that promises an adrenaline and endorphins-pumping experience.


Upon completion, enjoy the rest of the day with your fellow Dragon Run tribesmen at the Dragon Village, where a plethora of food and beverage offerings, carnival games and combat demonstrations await. Otherwise, sit back, enjoy the live feed of the run and cheer for your fellow runners.

Aspiring Dragon Warriors, aged 12 or younger, can embark on a journey through an equally entertaining and delicious candy-inspired bouncy castle, brought by SweetwalkTM. Also expect a myriad of children’s activities including face painting, balloon twisting and other carnival games that will ensure a satisfying day-out in the cool plains of Genting Highlands.
