Do you have the heart of a lion?
Summon the LION in you at the first ever obstacle race in Penang.
Lion Dash is a challenging obstacle course race with 10+ obstacles, mud, barbed wire, ice and more ! In addition to manmade obstacles, you will have to battle through some of the most rugged terrain in Penang.


  1. The main objective of Lion Dash is that it is designed to take runners out of their comfort zone and throw them into a new and challenging adventure that many have not experienced before. This is not road running or even trail running, this is obstacle racing, the next level of running events.
  2. Lion Dash is NOT a race. It is personal challenges where you will aspire to complete each obstacle set out successfully and make it to the finish line with a sense of achievement and satisfaction. There is no timing for this race; completing the Lion Dash is all that matters.
  3. There is no set time limit on which you must complete the Lion Dash course. The average time would be between 3 – 4 hours to complete Lion Dash, giving all participants ample time to conquer their fears.
  4. Participants will be given the opportunity to experience the beautiful forestry and rugged terrains in Penang by navigating through the treacherous hills and jungles.
  5. Although you can walk around an obstacle that you feel you cannot complete but we STRONGLY encourage attempting each obstacles as a form of challenging yourself.
