We’re all familiar with singing for our supper, but could you sprint for it?

The NAS Night Challenge is back and there’s Dhs144,000 prize money up for grabs – if you can hack 4km over half pipes and fire pits, that is.

The third annual race with take place on Thursday May 9 and Thursday May 16 at Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex, and it’s not for the faint-hearted.

Obstacles include some long-time classics and some new surprises that you’ll have to crawl, swing, splash, jump and climb your way around.

Held under the stars, there’ll be neon lighting, camp fires and glowing obstacles to overcome if you're to get your hands on that cash, which is split between four categories, including male, female, mixed team and female team.

The last event saw more than 2,000 participants from the UAE and abroad slog it out in this huge test of strength and endurance, and this year promises to be “even tougher”.

“NAS Night Challenge is one of the team’s favourite events to put on and we’re thrilled to be back for the third year running,” said Troy Gilham, Managing Director of Warrior Events, the company behind NAS Night Challenge.

“The night-time element of this exciting event makes it something a bit different from all of the other obstacle courses in the region, and it’s always fantastic to be part of a huge event like the NAS Sports Tournament.

“We can’t wait to see our previous participants take on an even tougher and more exhilarating course than last year and do their best to improve on their times, and of course to welcome new participants to the NAS Night Challenge course.”

Best get limbering up, then.
