Ninja Warrior and Spartan Race enthusiasts can soon look forward to a new obstacle course in town. A pop-up military-inspired obstacle course – The Gillette ProShield Challenge – is making its way to the heart of Orchard Road from now to 21 May.
Designed to provide a taste of the training Singapore’s national servicemen (NSmen) undergo, the obstacle course held at Plaza Singapura is part of Gillette’s #GilletteSalutes the NSman in You campaign to thank generations of Singapore’s NSmen for 50 years of serving and protecting the nation.
Open to members of the public, participants must race against the clock and conquer a series of obstacles – from scaling a warped wall to swinging from bar to bar and leaping across platforms – to complete the course. Check out this exciting teaser video of the course right here:
The first 150 participants on 21 May will each walk away with a pair of movie ticket vouchers. For the participant who clocks the fastest timing – prizes await. Best of all, participation is free!
1st Prize: 5 years worth of Gillette Fusion Proshield Razor and Blades, Gillette’s best razor to date
2nd Prize: 3 years worth of Gillette Fusion Proshield Razor and Blades
3rd Prize: 1 year worth of Gillette Fusion Proshield Razor and Blades
On top of that, Gillette’s most advanced razor, the Gillette Fusion ProShield Razor, will also be available at a discount, with the option of being customised with 10 different Limited Edition NS50 designs, and personalised too.
Grab your very own personalised NS50 razor or gift one to the NSmen in your life – whether a father, brother, partner or friend – who are often the unseen heroes and guardians of our shores, to show your appreciation for them and their service to the nation. With Father’s Day coming up, a personalised edition of one of their daily grooming essentials would make a great gift too.
The Gillette ProShield Challenge will be held from now to 21 May at Plaza Singapura, from 11am to 9pm.
Not able to get your hands on a personalised NS50 razor this weekend? Fret not – the customisable razors will also be available at several roadshows island-wide from now until July.
