Get ready to Konqer in Palau

As the Micronesian region’s original and most successful obstacle course race (OCR) event, KONQER continues to lead the pack with new course designs and venues each year. For the second year in a row, the KONQER Palau will take place on October 6-7, 2018.

KONQER’s commitment towards health and wellness through pureness of “PLAY” can be experienced in every obstacle design and location choice made, including the Kids Course and two exciting venues, namely the Natural Course in Airai State on Saturday, October 6th and the Obstacle Course Challenge at Long Island Park on Sunday, October 7th.

Registration is currently open for sponsorship, teams and individual participants. Accommodation and airfare specials can also be found on the konqersports.com web site. For participants and spectators, on October 7th, buses will be running every fifteen (15) minutes from parking areas in Medalaii and dropping them at the entrance to Long Island Park.

Pre-Konqer events include a 10K / 5K Run & Walk on Saturday, September 22nd, to promote health, wellness and physical preparedness for the upcoming Konqer sponsored by the Civic Action Team, as well as a Konqer Training House of Pain at the Track & Field from September 24th-27th.
