Brunei Darussalam’s competitor Justin Yong (pic below) participaed in the Spartan Race Barcelona Trifecta Weekend at Les Comes in Barcelona, Spain recently.
The Barcelona Trifecta Weekend comprised three races with extended distance namely Beast with distance of 25km, 15.5km Super and 6km Sprint.
Nestled in the beautiful mountains of Montserrat, the race took competitors to a max elevation gain of 1337m in the Beast Race and 893m in the Super Race.
Justin said, “This is definitely the toughest and most challenging Spartan Race I have ever attempted. You are basically climbing and descending the steep mountains of Montserrat. The obstacles are extra higher and heavier made for Europeans.”
“But nevertheless, it was still an unforgettable experience to compete in the Barcelona Trifecta Weekend,” he added.
The Bruneian also took home the Trifecta medal when he last competed in the Super and Sprint races in Semenyih, Kuala Lumpur and in the Beast and Sprint Race in Lima, the Philippines in May 2019.
Justin will join his fellow Bruneians in the Spartan Race Ultra in Iskandar Putri, Johor next month.
