Hailed as one of the toughest obstacle courses, Red Bull Levels returns to Sri Lanka for its 3rd edition. With 2 successful events held in 2015 and 2016, this ultimate test of body and mind returns to the crescent of the South Coast – Mirissa Beach on the 25th February at Kama Mirissa.
Red Bull Levels is an obstacle course that brings together two of Sri Lanka’s ancient trades – stilt fishing and toddy tapping in to one obstacle course that challenges ones strength, grit, stamina and team work. More than 400 dare-devils in teams of 4 will descend upon Mirissa Beach to participate in the 3rd edition of this event, which will feature an entirely new and updated course.
“Red Bull Levels is an obstacle course innovation. It makes teamwork together more than ever before, while still testing your personal challenges people have come to expect from Red Bull events, “ said Bentota Zone, defending champions of Red Bull Levels 2016. “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.”
This year, competitors will have time until February21, to register their teams and compete for the total prize money worth Rs. 600,000. The course will premier an additional stilt making the total amount of stilts to conquer for this year- six. Teams will qualify to the next round based on intense timed-knockout elimination.
“With Mirissa transforming into the latest hotspot in our tropical paradise, we are very excited to be working in partnership with Red Bull who are bringing a unique concept to Mirissa with Red Bull Levels. The concept which brings together local traditions in an unusual manner is sure to be one of the most exciting highlights of our calendar for 2017,” said Sheran Fonseka and Natalie Jayasuriya, owners of Kama Mirissa.
