History & introduction The Warrior Race is an obstacle course racing series that spans eight events across four provinces. The event features three distances of increasing difficulties, sparking an obstacle-racing craze that has seen t he event grow from 40,000 people in the first year to 80,000 since Jeep South Africa became involved in sponsorship. The approach of generating high impact and engaging content for social media has allowed the Jeep Warrior Race to reach a massive audience organically without expensive promotion, hitting over 100,000 people in the week leading up to events. The Jeep Warrior Race Facebook page grew from scratch to 40,000 likes in just 18 months, reaching over 400,000 unique users in 2014 alone. In July of 2016 The Warrior Race announced a second partnership with non other than Reebok, who have become synonymous with obstacle course racing throughout the world, and are now the official clothing brand for The Warrior Race.

Spectator INFO 16
Obstacle Racing is an amazing adventure that is fun-filled, action-packed and a highly entertaining spectator’s sport. The challenging and exciting obstacles that participants have to take on and conquer very often lead to awkward and extremely funny incidents and are a blast to witness as a spectator. The Jeep Warrior Race is no different, so if people are not actually participating in the race, there is no reason why they cannot still share in all the fun and action and be entertained by the crazy stuff that the “Warriors” are up to on the obstacle course. To get spectators as close to the action as possible, there will be designated spectator view points on the course - so bring those cameras! You will definitely want to capture some of that crazy action on camera. Spectator entry fee includes access to the entertainment area where a fun-filled day is guaranteed with DJ’s, beer stands, food stalls and a dedicated product expo area.
