This obstacle race is by no means a walk in the park! Or neither should you scoff at this 5k and 10k obstacle race as it is no fun run. It will be torture at most and will get you thinking why you’ve put yourself into this suffer-fest! You’ll run into big walls, monkey bars, barbwire crawls, carrying loads of heavy weights and you’r just warming up! Then crawl and wade through chest deep of mud for additional fun and you’re not even half-way through these obstacles!
The Guerilla Race motto, “Finish the race…or die trying” speaks well of the fighting spirit the organizers want all participants to embrace. The ultimate glory is at the finish line!
Simply put, Guerilla Race will be the Philippines’ leading obstacle race series. It’s an event of pure primitive madness that you’ll never forget!

WHAT IS THE GUERILLA RACE®SERIES?
The First in the Philippines
The Guerilla Race®Series is the first obstacle-driven race series of its kind in the Philippines. Skillfully developed by a Philippine Army Scout Ranger, the Guerilla Race® Series is meant to test the Guerilla Racers’® limits in terms of endurance of body, presence of mind and resilience of spirit.
The Blaze is in the Race
Water, fire, mud, spider nets, barbed wires, high walls, tunnels and other bizarre challenges are leagues beyond the usual fun run trails. The Guerilla Race®Series is all about the very obstacles that emphasize exciting landscapes and various race topographies in different regions of the Philippines.
“Finish the race…or keep on trying”
The Guerilla Race® Series is designed to unleash uncharted territories of one’s physical strength and mental stamina with the battery of obstacles. There is no map to be consulted nor is there any schedule of challenges to be followed. The only known constant lies in the mantra to “Finish the race…or keep on trying.”
Categories in the Guerilla Race® Series
The Guerilla Race®Series offers a progressive race course, with four venues of varying distances and difficulty levels. Each leg of the series is devised with terrain-inspired or venue specific obstacles, all guaranteed to surprise the participants and to ignite their sense for strategy.
The Guerilla Sprint®
This obstacle sprint sets the Guerilla Racer® toward the start of his journey,
covering a 5-kilometer distance. Beginner racers, fun run fanatics, duathlon
and triathlon athletes, adventurers, thrill seekers and marathon mavens
alike will find themselves in a grueling but fun-filled endeavor involving at
least 12 obstacles.
The Guerilla Warrior®
The next obstacle race features a 10-kilometer trail and mud race of 18 or
more obstacles. The top 3 male and top 3 female participants at the Guerilla
Warrior® will qualify for free entry into the succeeding round.
The Guerilla Panther Challenge®
The third tier in the series, the Guerilla Panther Challenge®boasts of a
gruelling 21-kilometer trail with 25 or more obstacles, outclassing any other
trail run, fun run, Olympic run, bike race, or marathon. The top 3 male and top 3 female participants at the Guerilla Panther Challenge® must then brace themselves for the ultimate challenge in the series.
The Ultimate Guerilla Race®
This highest tier of the series, the Ultimate Guerilla Race® is a 24-hour
endurance event with no real known distance or specific challenge count.
The trail covers an undisclosed mix of obstacles, physical challenges, and
mental exercise. Finishers of this final leg of the series will comprise the
elite circle of Guerilla Racers®, ready to take on the next battery of
obstacles on the race course, or even outside and beyond it. The Ultimate
Guerilla Race male and female winner will be sent to compete outside the
country, all expense-paid.
The Guerilla Racer®

The Guerilla Racer® knows how to have fun, even in the face of a difficult ordeal. The Guerilla Racer®is a leader, an explorer and an achiever of new horizons, yet, a firm believer in ideals such as camaraderie and cooperation.

–The Guerilla Team Challenge®
The Guerilla Race® Series welcomes group entries for each tier, as a unique team-building alternative to a picnic or a walk in the park.
