Red Bull Lev­els in Ben­tota on Nov.24

Sunday Times (Sri Lanka) - - SPORTS -

Con­sid­ered one of the tough­est ob­sta­cle cour­ses, Red Bull Lev­els re­turns to Sri Lanka for its 4th edi­tion. With 3 suc­cess­ful events held in 2015, '16 and '17, this ul­ti­mate test of body and mind re­turns on November 24 to the Avani Re­sort, Ben­tota.

Red Bull Lev­els is an ob­sta­cle course that brings to­gether two of Sri Lanka’s an­cient trades- stilt fish­ing and toddy tap­ping- into one ob­sta­cle course that chal­lenges one’s strength, grit, stamina and team­work. More than 800 daredevils in teams of 4 will par­tic­i­pate in this event, which will fea­ture an en­tirely new and up­dated course.

"Red Bull Lev­els is an ob­sta­cle course in­no­va­tion. It makes teams work to­gether more than ever be­fore, while still test­ing your per­sonal chal­lenges peo­ple have come to ex­pect from Red Bull events," stated R.D.S. Surf School, de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons of Red Bull Lev­els 2017.

"The team strat­egy you come in with paired with the crash­ing waves, the chal­lenge of stilt fish­ing and the un­for­giv­ing strength needed to bal­ance on the tightrope is some­thing that you just can­not un­der­stand. It’s ex­hil­a­rat­ing."

Com­peti­tors have un­til November 23 to visit its official web­site, www. lev­ and regis­ter their teams to com­pete for the to­tal prize pool worth Rs. 500,000. Teams will qual­ify to the next round based on in­tense timed-knock­out elim­i­na­tion.
