The Muscle Run

The Muscle Run is a race bringing two branches of fitness together; running and functional fitness.

Challenges are selected to attack different natural movement patterns of the body. Recreational fitness enthusiasts, professional athletes, and even those new to their fitness journey can participate.

The Muscle Run will take place alongside the Bangkok Throwdown, the first Licensed CrossFit event in Thailand’s history.
