Early this year, I wanted to go to Escape PJ when I learned they opened very nearby (Paradigm Mall is literally a walk away) but came fake pandemic measure MCO 2.0.
Now that most of Malaysia has reopened again – and so did Escape PJ – I checked out the place this weekend. If you buy your tickets online, you can save anywhere from 10% to 20% on the fee depending on how early you book.
The experience is worth it, and even though we’ve spent a good 3 hours here, we did not get to try out every obstacle course. Partly due to the weekend crowd as well.
At this point, it’s been 9 months I’ve been active in the seminar business. Nearly every week I’d be doing presentations and workshops, though I still train actively by doing near-nightly walks, gym and hikes on weekends.
So I was looking forward to the XS Obstacle Course Race. Even though it’s only 5KM and significantly easier than the Viper Challenges and Spartan Races I joined, the event was to be held back in September but had to be postponed on account of haze.
The race requires a team of 3; we stuck together from start to the finishing line.
My approach to these obstacle races: don’t waste your energy on running; save it for the obstacles.
I look forward to joining more events like this now and then, but not the Viper Challenges (done it like 3-4 times already) and Spartan Race (completed the Trifecta already).
