Safe Sea and the 2016 Race
The challengers got the opportunity to learn about Safe Sea and to try its well-known benefits - higher SPF to protect themselves from the sun's harsh rays and to protect themselves from any danger of stings, specifically from marine stingers.
Safe Sea Jellyfish Protection Sunscreen an organic sunscreen offering double protection from the sun and jellyfish stings. It is a very water resistant sunblock, with higher UV protection, which can last up to 80 minutes of aquatic activities. This sunscreen is a research-proven product to prevent jellyfish stings by deactivating the stinging mechanism of various marine stingers.
Safe Sea has a waterproof, slippery texture that makes it difficult for the stinging tentacles to attach to the skin. absorbs secretions from the skin that would otherwise tell the jellyfish that its in contact with prey or predator. Chemical stoppers in Safe Sea block the chemical pathways where the stinging process is activated.

The challengers mostly comprise of students competing for a tertiary category and two open categories, held at the Pasir Ris Elias Community Club.
This adventure race was set to be different among other normal races, involving multiple disciplines in the progression - running, cycling and kayaking to name a few. There were static stations which challengers aggressively aimed for, as well as stations with high elements and others that have gotten themselves drenched.
And yes, not only the physical boundaries are pushed to their limits, but it also served as a great mental challenge too!
