For those of you who religiously watch Ninja Warrior and Wipeout and think you can conquer the courses with ease, then we’ve got news for you.

The DBS Marina Regatta is back once again for its 7th edition in celebration of DBS’ 50th anniversary, with 2 weekends of fun and challenges for adrenaline junkies and urban athletes.

The DBS Marina Regatta will be held at The [email protected] Bay on 26 – 27 May and 2 – 3 June 2018.

For The Fitness Buffs

Choose from the Beginner (Initiate), Intermediate (Intense) and Advanced (Insane) levels and test your endurance, strength and speed. Here’s a peek at what the courses will be like.

Of course, you’re not expected to just “be ready” for such an intense challenge. So DBS has prepared a series of complimentary fitness and wellness activities around the bay starting from 17 April 2018.

Prices for Battle Bay Extreme start at $8 – $10 for Initiate and $28 for Intense and Insane.

You can register for the complimentary, pre-Regatta fitness classes and the Battle Bay Extreme here.

That’s not all, for an early-bird fee of $38, you’ll be able to try your hands at the six-foot wall, inverted ladders, rope climbs, quintuple steps and more!

All registered participants will receive a goodie bag with exclusive DBS Marina Regatta products and TripleFit discount passes!

For The Health-Conscious

For those of you who aren’t as athletically-inclined, you can check out the Creator’s Market that’s set up in partnership with Mahota.

The Creator’s Market will feature the Mahota Grocers Market selling healthy snacks and drinks, an open area for wellness activities, and even a communal social kitchen.

There’s something for everyone in the family. Parents can choose to make your own superfood snacks such as granola bars and acai bowls while the kids can get creative in the hands-on upcycling, craft and wellness workshops available.

All workshops and classes are ticketed which means you’ll need to register and pay for them. Don’t worry though, all are priced below $20.

You can view the list of workshops available here and register for them on-site or online if you’re applying for the Mahota classes.

For The Sports Fans

Now for the main event of the DBS Marina Regatta – the dragon boating competition.
