EVENT TYPES

Dorians Challenge is an untimed event for everyone over the age of 18, from first time obstacle runners and people who exercise moderately to elite athletes.

Dorians Coastal Challenge: The second episode of the series, a course tougher than the original Challenge and an obstacle course among very few of its kind worldwide. The Dorians Coastal Challenge is also a non-competitive course consisting of a 5km run with over 20 obstacles along a sandy beach and in shallow waters. Dorians Coastal Challenge is open to everyone over 16 years old, from people who exercise little or moderately to performance athletes, to all year swimmers and non-swimmers. This run promises to be a challenging course, a fun event, and a lifetime experience.

Dorians Ultimate Challenge: 12 km of the roughest terrain, with 30+ obstacles and with participants racing against the clock, Dorians Ultimate Challenge is the perfect race for those wishing to hone their body and challenge their spirit. The Ultimate Challenge will be the first timed obstacle race ever held in Cyprus.

Dorians Survival Challenge: The first survival challenge ever held in Cyprus and the toughest of all Dorian courses. Planned, organized and guided in association with Marine Veterans and survival professionals with international expertise, Dorians Survival Challenge is a grueling 24-hour challenge for teams of 2 to 4 people. The Survival Challenge will be held for first time by the end of 2017, in a real wilderness environment, under controlled and unexpected conditions and a considerable cash prize for the first team to survive and cross the finishing line.

MORE THAN OBSTACLE COURSES

Dorians Challenge is more than jumping walls, crawling on muddy trenches, rope climbing, jumping over fire and carrying logs. It is the Ultimate Team Building and Workplace bonding event. Traditional corporate leadership and teamwork development seminars on conference rooms and exercises on whiteboards is boring. For businesses and departments searching for ways to strengthen communication, build trust, trace leadership skills, enhance teamwork and boost morale, Dorians Challenge is a great start.
